More about us

Youth Network, as a program of Open Club, has been developed in parallel with the implementation of the project “Living Together”. Going beyond the framework of the project, a group of young activists, with the support of their youth leaders, began to self-develop a program of activities which eventually became one of the most important programs of the organization.
