10.7 Raising awareness about youth work
On this page
1. Information providers
As the youth work is a very diversified sector, there are no general campaigns directed at promotion of this form of youth participation, or a coordinated information system at the national level. Nevertheless, there exist multiple strategies of different providers in relation to information provision, e.g. The Day Care Centers, operated by local governments, are usually promoted through social services websites and centers (e.g. Krakow’s Social Support Center website). Often at the level of municipalities or local communes there exist centers of information on volunteering (e.g. in Warsaw), as well as a Eurodesk network of information centers in relation to European opportunities (see more in 2.6). Concerning the work of the NGOs, the very popular website for people engaged in the third sector is ngo.pl
2. Key initiatives
A new initiative of Youth Fund (2022-2033) is seen as a strategic way to support youth organisations and youth councils in regards to engagement in public life. In relation to non-governmental organizations engaged in youth work, the creation of The National Freedom Institute – Centre for Civil Society Development in 2017 can be seen as a way to promote the activity of third sector in general. Among its activities, within Scout Movement Development Governmental Programme for 2018-2030, one of the aims is to promote the scouting movement in the media.
