The organisations serve as national network hubs, and later 15 CSOs which will be the selected from the call for proposal will join the network. The CSO which will be selected from this call for proposal will increase their capacities through the training program and mentoring for the first 6 months and in the follow up of 12 month financial support will be provided for CSOs to implement their advocacy initiatives working towards social, economic and political inclusion of young women and men.

CSOs joining the network, in a later phase, will be part of a study trip in Serbia visiting local municipalities in order to gain first-hand knowledge of the functioning of the youth bank model. During the study visit, there will be a formal admission of the 15 CSOs to the YBH for WBT network.
