The name wants to recall our vision of the world: make sure that young people are the active protagonists in making their city an ideal place. POY is also a reference to looking ahead to a better future.

The group is composed by 5 women, who come from different municipalities and have different backgrounds:

Chaira is 28, she’s graduated in science and technologies of fine arts and entertainment at the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore of Brescia. She has different experiences in the field of international volunteering and in communications.

Miriana is 28, she’s graduated in International Communication, with specialization in Public Diplomacy at Vilnius University. She cooperated for several years with an Onlus of Cinisello Balsamo.

Giulia is 26, she’s graduated in communication sciences at the Università degli Studi of Milan and she had lots of experiences of volunteering at a youth association.

Carlotta is 25, she’s graduated in Science of Education and of Formation at the Università Bicocca in Milan.

Martina is 24, she’s majoring in Psychological Science at the University of Bergamo. She worked for Anffas Onlus NordMilano like swimming instructor for kids with disabilities and she did different experiences as group leader in youth exchanges (Erasmus+) .

The group was born in December 2019 after they have been selected to participate at the Universal Civic Service inside the Office of Youth Policies in the municipality of Cinisello Balsamo and, after a year of work and numerous shared experiences, we decided to create POY.

The enthusiasm and the passion that the experience left us, led us to develop a work activity that could truly reach out to the young people, to their issues and current needs.

POY-Point Of Youth offers opportunities for growth and self-development to young people between 13 and 30 years old trough local and international projects for create comfort moments and raising awareness on current themes.

We think that all of this is achievable trough the creation of synergies with the territory associations and the promotion of moments of dialog between young people and administrations.

In the respect of the European guidelines we share the values of inclusion, Eco-sustainability and active citizenship that are on the base of our work, guaranteeing to the young people equal access to all our activities. The results achieved to date, also thanks to the path of EntrecompLab Senior, are many: we opened the social pages, structured a program of contents and created an internet site. We are working for the opening of the association trough an accompanying route with an association of territory of Cinisello Balsamo. Parallel to this we are experimenting in conducting the path of EntrecompLab Junior and at last we are taking care of the writing of national and international projects.

The objectives for the nearest future are obviously the (constitution) of the association and the management of projects on a local and an international level that involve the young people of the territory so sign your name! In about 5 years Point Of Youth will be an association recognized and known, that will count many associates inside of it and a big number of projects approved and done.

A network of local and European partners and why not, an entire own space!
