Please briefly present the partner organisation

Umbrella is a Georgian youth value-based organization that is aiming to educate, motivate and activate young people aged 13-30 in Georgia and beyond, in order to be empowered and develop the communities that are coming from.

The mission of the organization is to support the young people’s progress by creating educational initiatives developing young people’s competence in the field of civil society, environment, human rights and democracy in Georgian society.

To reach the goal we adopted the strategy of setting up youth development spaces to attract young people and implement various youth-led activities at local, national and international levels. Currently, we have four youth centers in different regions of Georgia.

Since the establishment in 2016 our members and beneficiaries have participated in various local, national and international youth work-related events, we have run dozens of projects at the local level and became a partner in the European project with our international partner youth organization. To ensure the real impact we work on local, national and international levels, something that brings innovation and problem-solving youth work results.

Umbrella is a member of the following international or European youth networks – MIJARC Europe, YEE, Rural Europe, GYBN, IYNF, ECYC, FIMCAP and DYPALL.

To better serve target groups recently we assessed the needs of those groups and developed a program and action plan for 2022, which includes activities on the topics of human rights, active citizenship and the environment.

What are the activities and experiences of the partner organisation in youth work? Please provide information on your organisation’s / group’s regular youth work activities.?

To give the exact answer we need to know the details of the project proposal.
