Who we are ?


The Gostivar Youth and Community Center (GYCC) serves a safe and open space for all Gostivar residents. We provide community programming to Gostivar’s youth, and our rent-free community room is available to any community member wishing to bring positive change to Gostivar. We aim to bring the community members together, celebrate our rich cultures, and build a more resilient community.

The GYCC Center is operated by Democracy Lab, an organization committed to forming networks and partnerships focused on building, developing, and sustaining a functional democratic system in Macedonia and the Western Balkan State. In our efforts, we are supported by the Municipality of Gostivar and the United States Embassy of Macedonia.
