Project outputs:
PO1- [2] NGO markets;
PO2- [4] tutorials corresponding to the 4 pillars of the training course: collaborative work, time management, internal communication, visibility;
PO3- [1/participant] Youthpass Certificates;
PO4- [1] digital leaflet on the topic of "7 tips for collaborative work";

PO6- [4-5] project ideas;
PO7- [1] multiplication campaign at European level managed by all partner organisations;
PO8- [1] network focused on youth projects - PRISMA network;

Taking benefit of a large network of partners, we believe PRISMA will impact on their organisational capacity by sharing good practices, planning future projects and working together in the frame of the newly founded PRISMA network. Moreover, the local muiltiplication events will have a clear focus on the local communities aiming to raise awareness about social media tools that can be used in projects and in youth work. The project added value will be brought also by approaching a large variety of stakeholders (NGOs, public institutions, media, companies etc.) and linking this project to European Youth Capital 2015 - Cluj-Napoca, Romania.
Nevertheless, some of the project outputs will be made available online assuring the visibility of the project, but also allowing other interested people to use these results in their work.
