We cut the ribbon at the new Youth Center, and with the help of the young people in Burgas, we will turn it into a home for everyone! From the very first day, many people recognised the center as their place for inspiration, creativity, and expression.

We sincerely thank everyone who helped to make this place possible – the Local Development Programme, the Mayor of Burgas Dimitar Nikolov, Burgas Municipality, Reykjavik Municipality, and the Ministry of Education and Science.

In addition to the opening, YIC Burgas hosted another important event – a conference on the future of youth centers in Bulgaria. Representatives of the Ministry of Youth and Sports, the National Youth Forum Bulgaria, Youth Center Vratsa, Youth Center Montana, International Youth Center Pernik, Youth Center Plovdiv, International Youth Center Stara Zagora, Youth Center Gabrovo and Youth Center Dobrich attended the event. They helped with the development of 8 similar centers in the country.

At the opening, the youth organizations in Burgas presented their activities to the guests, and the final was more than impressive!

The hosts of the concert were Arti and Krisi. Dune Dance School, Dance Studio 29, Black Style Squad, Paolina Yordanova, Niya Stoyanova, Aleksandra Ivanova, and Zhaklin Kostadinova also took part in it. The stars – Boro Parvi and Atanas Kolev, helped make the concert a show that the guests will never forget!
