Be a voice, not an echo! Youth Alliance - Krusevo
   Leaders (DO NOT) Cheat

This is a project we did in cooperation with NDI (National Democratic Institute) and NED (National Endowment for Democracy) with the goal to understand the youth of North Macedonia and their relationship with corruption and the way that leaders influence their perspective. 

This cooperation is based on the idea that young people are strongly influenced by the corruption that is happening around them every day and through this project we want to equip the young people that have the will and wish to fight corruption to learn how to do so, with the right tools and right approaches. 

This project was implemented from March to September 2022 resulting in many relevant outcomes and community benefits. The five most tangible products from this project are as follows: 

  1. An active Viber community with more than 100 active young people who aim to inform themselves about anti-corruption activities and opportunities, the future of the society that we all live in is enriched with young individuals who give their all for a better tomorrow.
  2. Podcast number 1: "Are leaders ethical leaders at home" with Mr. Hamdi Suleyamni,  previous advisor in Tetovo municipality and activist in the independent group "Better for Tetovo", which you can watch on YouTube or listen to on Spotify.
  3. Podcast number 2: "Corruption, youth and leadership" with Mr. Misha Popović, project coordinator at the Institute for Democracy Societas Civilis Skopje, which you can watch on YouTube or listen to on Spotify.
  4. Podcast number 3: "Say, speak, react!" with Filip Samardziev A.K.A. Sexy Marsa, hip-hop and trap artist, which you can watch on YouTube or listen to on Spotify.
  5. Infographic – The result from an analysis conducted with more than 400 young people and their perceptions about corruption in their surroundings but also the public view on the issues, the results were many and versatile but the most relevant and important information of the conducted analysis is visually presented in the form of an infographic. 



Another product is soon expected from this project, a Policy statement from YAK regarding the influence of corruption in the community. Even though the project has concluded the Youth Alliance - Krushevo team will continue to actively engage the young people involved in the project and spread the need to live in a corruption free society to allow for the creation of a country that every young person wants to stay in and call their home.
