Survival kit for young leaders (SKOL)

The project aims to empower youth community leaders, activists, and members of marginalized youth organizations by providing them with a survival kit to navigate crises like COVID-19. Its goal is to help them develop skills that will contribute to creating flexible and stable workplaces in the future. With over 450,000 Roma people living in Slovakia, they constitute the country’s second-largest minority. Many reside in economically disadvantaged regions far from the capital, often facing poor conditions and limited resources, which perpetuate their social exclusion. These communities experience unequal treatment, discrimination, and stereotypes based on their social, cultural, and historical background. However, there are individuals within these communities who have established or joined marginalized youth organizations, working to support the Roma people in various ways. The project’s mission is to provide these young activists with opportunities to unleash their potential within their communities. Through special seminars, they will learn to develop sustainable strategies, create role models, collaborate with other marginalized youth organizations, and promote an open and engaged society. The seminars will focus on discovering their strengths and weaknesses, improving management, communication, and leadership skills, as well as gaining knowledge in project management and identifying funding opportunities for building stable organizations.
