After selection of the local youth voluntary organisations, we will do practical virtual Action Lab: the participants will be able to chose one local youth voluntary organisation and one focus area (from 4 aspects they analysed: fundraising, awareness, etc.) and prepare interactive material/ presentation that this youth voluntary organisation could use.
