*The Youth Program is a UNDP volunteer program where participants can learn and realize their potential in the priority areas of the organization, such as climate change, environmental protection, socio-economic growth, peace and justice. This year, the program will be conducted with the participation of mentors among the graduates of last year's program.

**The age of participants is limited due to the fact that the Youth Program aims to support and increase the potential of a young population group, which, according to various estimates, is vulnerable and often lacks access to resources, including training, capacity building and / or social meaningful activity.

All questions related to the Youth Program should be directed to: chyntemir.kalbaev@undp.org
