Young Improvers for Youth Development Launches Smolyan Green Ambassadors Program

Young Improvers for Youth Development (YIYD), a non-profit organization based in Smolyan, Bulgaria, has launched its Smolyan Green Ambassadors Program as part of its Voices United for Smolyan: Empowering Marginalized Youth for Environmental Advocacy project. The program aims to support small-scale, community-led environmental projects initiated by marginalized youth in the Smolyan region.

Through the Smolyan Green Ambassadors Program, YIYD seeks to empower young people from rural communities, minorities, and vulnerable groups to take an active role in environmental advocacy and policy-making. The program will provide training and resources to help young people design and implement their own environmental projects, with the goal of creating sustainable and positive change in their local communities.
The program will also create a network of young environmental leaders who will work together to tackle local environmental challenges and raise awareness about the importance of environmental stewardship. YIYD will support these young leaders through mentorship, capacity-building, and access to resources, as they develop and implement their projects.

We are excited to announce the launch of our Smolyan Green Ambassadors program, aimed at supporting small-scale, community-led environmental projects initiated by marginalized youth in Smolyan.
As a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering and supporting young people from rural and marginalized communities, we believe that the voices of marginalized youth should be amplified and represented in local decision-making processes related to environmental issues.

We invite all young people in Smolyan who are passionate about the environment and want to make a difference in their community to apply for the Smolyan Green Ambassadors program. Selected participants will receive funding and mentorship to carry out their environmental projects, as well as opportunities to participate in training and networking events.
We believe that youth-led initiatives can make a significant impact in our community, and we are excited to see what projects our Smolyan Green Ambassadors will bring to life. Let’s work together to make our community a greener and more sustainable place for all.
