Due to the financial crisis and to the authorities' lack of active measures to promote active youth participation, the rural youth is lacking opportunities to get involved with volunteering activities. Thus, we consider that rural youth should be invested with opportunities to get involved with activities that would help their personal and professional development. For this purpose, the local authorities, the non-governmental actors, the institutions in charged with this group's education, should start developing structured dialogue frames and programmes and projects aiming at offering rural youth active youth participation frames and volunteering activities.The problem comes from the experiences shared by 30 youngsters, representing 6 countries and over 12 regions, youngsters that posted the problem after their consultation process with their peers in the rural areas.
