1. BACKGROUND

On January 1, 2023, the United Nations Development Programme in Ukraine (UNDP) under the financial support of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark launched the “Democratization and Human Rights 2023-2026 Project”, under which the sub-project Civil Society and Youth Support Project (CSYP) will be implemented until the 31 December 2026. The project is embedded in the Democratic Governance portfolio, through which UNDP assists the Government, civil society, and the people of Ukraine in advancing democratic policies and practices needed to accelerate progress on sustainable human development.

UNDP is a long-standing partner of the Ministry of Youth and Sports in developing and implementing initiatives for and with young people of Ukraine. With regards to the youth civic engagement, UNDP has further elaborated the Youth Worker Programme (YWP) launched in 2014 with the support of UNDP Ukraine and in cooperation with the Ministry of Youth and Sport of Ukraine (hereinafter – the Ministry) and the State Institute for Family and Youth Policy. Eight years of programme implementation allows improving the professional background of representatives of civil servants and civil society organizations work with young people aimed at increasing the number of young people who participate in shaping youth policy and in enhancing cooperation between government and CSOs on youth issues.

The full-scale war in Ukraine which started with the Russian invasion as of 24 February 2022 affected every young Ukrainian man and woman. According to the Ministry of Youth and Sports of Ukraine, more than 2 million young people have become internally displaced and another 2 million have been forced to leave the country which constitutes 40% of the total number of young people in Ukraine. At least, 35 youth centres have been destroyed, damaged, or located in territories not controlled by the Government of Ukraine. In those regions of Ukraine where there are no active hostilities, youth centres and youth organizations have transformed their work since the first days of the war. Most of them currently operate as temporary shelters for IDPs, humanitarian aid collection centres, volunteer coordination hubs, and provide assistance to those in need.

According to the Ministry of Youth and Sport of Ukraine, 60 percent of the youth workers are internally displaced. According to this survey, 51 percent of youth workers need an exchange of experience with other youth workers 50 percent require informational support about opportunities in the field of youth sector; and 47 percent mentioned the need for financial support for their initiatives and teams.

At the request of the Ministry of Youth and Sports of Ukraine, UNDP analyzed the current state of the professional network of youth workers and developed a roadmap for the transformation of the YWP with the aim of providing support to youth workers during and after the war as well as to ensure young people’s involvement in resilience building and recovery processes. According to the performed analysis, the content and format of the educational components of the Youth Worker Programme must be updated to address new realities.

UNDP support is essential for Youth Worker Programme to ensure its sustainable development in the conditions of limited state funding during martial law and the subsequent recovery process.
