In addition to these basic goals and tasks, KOMPAS is engaged in improving the position of young people in the society, so we were one of the initiators and the main carrier of the making process of Local Youth Strategy, which was adopted in 2007 and has been successfully implemented in Pancevo, and taken as an good practice example in Serbia.
