Coordinators of youth affairs

The establishment of positions of coordinators of youth affairs was initiated by some municipalities in 1998; all municipalities started establishing these positions in 2003 after the state has delegated the protection of youth rights to municipalities and allocated financing to have such positions.

Coordinator of youth activities assists the municipal institutions to frame and implement the municipal youth policy. Standard functions of youth coordinator are approved by the Order of the Minister of Social Security and Labor (4 March 2008, No. A1‑68).
