Stress? No, thanks. Youth workers in balance, ready for youth challenges

With a project “Stress? No, thanks. Youth workers in balance, ready for youth challenges”, we aim to improve youth participation, focusing on improving mental health and skills of youth workers in different areas of Europe after the deterioration caused by COVID-19. The healthier we are and the more we know ourselves, the better we understand and support young people.
