Projects in Kosovo
Community Economic Development
Peace Corps Kosovo Community & Organizational Development (COD) project strengthens organizational capacity at the municipal level by bolstering community-led projects, and increasing youth and women’s employment skills in an effort to serve the neediest communities of Kosovo. By placing Volunteers in one of Kosovo’s municipalities to work among a triangle of institutions consisting of the local government and civil society which represent the interests of youth and women, each Volunteer helps to facilitate local collaboration to augment the organizations’ impact and achieve community-led development outcomes focusing on economic development and increased citizen engagement. Through this project, youth and women increase participation in civil society while attaining competitive employability skills.
