The first autumn online meeting of the Alumni Club, established by the participants in the two editions of the "Initiative" training project of the Workshop for Civic Initiatives Foundation, took place. Tsvetan Tasev, Chairman of the Youth Development Institute Association, who is a participant in the second edition of the training, presented the progress in the management of a project he is working on, entitled "Career development of young people in Northwestern Bulgaria and Transylvania“.   

Charged with enthusiasm and innovative proposals, the participants in the meeting discussed the potential opportunities for the successful implementation of the project and shared stories and working methodologies from their personal experiences. 

"The idea of the Alumni Club is to help each other and to transfer the things we do in different places in the country to other places and make them work well," said Kristina Yordanova from XALO 2019 Foundation, also a participant in the second edition, about the benefits of the Club's meetings and the potential for developing partnerships with organizations that have gained experience in other places, and how this experience can be successfully adapted locally.

Another 5 monthly meetings of the Club are planned to help the participants build a strong peer network, work on different topics and support each other. The next meeting is scheduled for early November.

The main objective of the project is an accumulation of knowledge, and skills and creating the conditions for transfer of experience to young leaders of civic organizations.
