  1. Dear,

    this training is open for participants coming from: Programme countries of Youth in Action programme, Mediterranean Partner countries and other partner countries.
    You can check with your National Agency, if you have one, or another alternative is to contact the organizers of the training and ask them the question since in the list of NAs in the call: http://www.salto-youth.net/tools/training/find-a-… Albania is not listed.

    Good luck!

    1. Dear,

      since Macedonia is not listed in the list of NAs in the call, we are afraid that Macedonian citizens are not eligible to participate.

      We would still strongly encourage you to contact the organizers of the training: INJEP/French National Agency of YiA program or to contact SALTO again.

      Good luck!
