“Crime, Youth and Social Service”

“Crime, Youth and Social Service”, Balıkesir, Turkey, 04.-10.11.2012 

Youth crime is among the most serious issues the European community has to face, while trying to overcome the economic crisis and its companion, the high youth unemployment. These confitions make youth projects dedicated to youth crime very suitable in general and even more appropriate at the actual moment. Bulgarian Youth Forum had the opportunity to participate in such a project from the 4th to the 10th of November 2012 that took place in Balıkesir, Turkey. Participants from Bulgaria, Romania, Italy and Turkey were challenged to elaborate on innovative social service models for young people at risk, and at the same time interact with other cultures. The project offered a great environment that enabled the participants to generate ideas for the successful inclusion of victims of crime and youngsters at risk as well as for the increase of public awareness on the issues in question. The project was made possible through the “Youth in Action” programme (4.3 part) and was supported by the official Turkish social institutions.
