  2. 2. SYNC_GEN isA programme that brings together mentors, community stakeholders and young people, along with current up-to-date technologies to conceive an alternative to the conventional youth service. Via an on-line platform young people will be able to initiate events,programmes and activities they want to see and participate in, in the local area. The platform supports youngpeople by putting them in touch with mentors and will provide a database of expertise, venues, funding avenues and relevant links to information they may need to get projects of the ground.The long term aspiration of SYNC_GEN is to equip young people with the skills needed to develop an entrepreneurial mindset and to test this by inviting them to co-curate community activities.
