Features of functioning of youth non-government organizations in Lviv: dynamics and current status


The article is devoted to the analysis of the representations of Lviv citizens on functioning features of the youth non-government organizations in Lviv.

Based on the analysis of the in-depth interviews an expert portrait of the youth non-government organizations activities was formed, which further was compared to the citizens’ views about the activities of youth organizations in their city.

Based on the diachronic comparative analysis, the data was obtained that the townspeople have narrowed, but a fairly stable idea on the activities of the Lviv youth organizations.
