USAID’s Civic Engagement Project (CEP) invites individuals, organizations, or institutions to nominate young men and women or informal youth groups to be considered for CEP’s Annual Youth Civic Engagement Award (YCEA).
YCEA will honor successful young men and women (aged 18 – 29) and informal youth groups, the latter consisting of at least three members, that have demonstrated exemplary commitment to improving the life of their community or that of the society at large by undertaking actions that address issues of public concern at any level in Macedonia. YCEA will be awarded for actions that the nominees have undertaken during January – December 2016.
YCEA will recognize initiatives by young men and women or informal youth groups that have demonstrated exceptional creativity and innovation, and have brought about tangible results in improving the community or society’s wellbeing due to the nominee’s actions. Upon award, CEP will support future initiatives by YCEA winners through in-kind grants.
