Everybody Counts! A Handbook on Inclusion and Participation of young people in Eastern Partnership Countries is an inspiration and recourse for youth workers who work on inclusion and participation of marginalized youth in Eastern Partnership countries. As a part of our efforts to mainstream youth inclusion and participation issues into state youth strategies and policies among the stakeholders in Armenia, Moldova and Ukraine and encourage the state authorities to put specific efforts in regional and rural youth policy development and implementation, we have developed this Handbook. Through the publication and free distribution of this handbook, Armenian Progressive Youth NGO wishes to make a humble contribution to the efforts aimed at enhancing youth participation in the Eastern Partnership countries. We hope that this handbook will be used by youth workers and youth leaders to multiply the project message by using the methods and content of the Handbook. Also, we hope that CSOs working with youth will use it as a start resource for the initiatives of their volunteers and for the development of their own activities. Additionally, we do believe that concrete recommendations provided in the handbook will encourage the state authorities in the Eastern Partnership countries to put specific efforts in regional and rural youth policy development and implementation. This Handbook evolved from a project “Everybody Counts: Rural Youth Empowerment in Eastern Partnership Countries” which has been implemented by Armenian Progressive Youth NGO (Armenia) in collaboration with Foundation for Advancement (Moldova) and Society Initiatives Institute (Ukraine). The project benefited from the support through the EaP CSF Re-granting Scheme. Within its Re-granting Scheme, the Eastern Partnership Civil Society Forum (EaP CSF) supports projects of the EaP CSF members with a regional dimension that contribute to achieving the mission and objectives of the Forum.
