Regional union of youth organizations promotes
The Regional union of youth organizations „Apvalus stalas“(RJOSAS) is an umbrella organization that unites 6 regional youth organizations. It was founded in 2004 with the goal to better represent youth needs and encourage closer collaboration between young people, youth workers and local authorities; to equip them with the relevant competences for youth policy-making at the regional and national level.
By involving youth in community development RJOSAS aims to encourage local initiatives and active citizenship in the target group, aged 13-30. The activities are focused on the support and empowerment of youth organizations in their development processes by providing non formal education based workshops and training courses on the subject of leadership, entrepreneurship, core competencies for youth work, etc.
Since 2012 RJOSAS is a member of LIJOT, which is the biggest non-governmental, non-profit umbrella structure for Lithuanian national youth organizations and regional unions of youth organizations.
At the international level RJOSAS is committed to develop further fruitful partnerships and promote the idea of being a part of Europe. Within different grant schemes such as Erasmus+ programme, Europe for Citizens, Nordbuk, EEE grants, and others, we have organized and participated in a great number of international youth exchanges, training courses, conferences and other events which have contributed to a large extent to the goals of the association and improved the key competences of our volunteers.
