American Corners in Bitola, Skopje, Struga, Tetovo and Shtip are working as place resource centers where youth can find free information about the United States, organize and participate in variety of events. In order to bridge the users of the corners the project will produce digital solution, which will enhance the engagement of the users. We envision the Corners to be perceived as local creative and knowledge hubs for youth and motivate them to become leaders in their society.
The project will promote youth engagement by using innovative technologies enabled through the American Corners. We will produce a mobile app that will turn the American Corners into local creative and knowledge hubs for youth in which the users can organize and visit events. This mobile app will diminish the barriers and improve the communication between the youth as corners` users and administrators empowering the users to be active creators of content offered by the corners. The youth will be engaged through the app`s gamified model.
