Two groups of students, together with youth workers in training, held two workshops each for the first module, on 6th, 7th, 13th and 14th May at the Educational-Leisure Centre for Youth SPAJALICA.

Organisations and institutions from which the participants are coming will join in an informal network to become a profiled partner in making decisions that concern improving conditions for raising children and youth in a society with no addiction or violent behavior.
