Joining our network isn't just about seeing what other people are doing for road safety in their countries, we offer members a whole host of benefits that go beyond linking organizations together. Here are the benefits of joining the YOURS network and did we mention, it's absolutely free? All we require is that you meet the criteria and be an active member.
You will obtain access to resources, information and relevant news that will help you with your projects and organizational work. This information is not available everywhere, it is hand-picked, selected specifically for youth organizations in road safety and compiled by YOURS to offer you opportunities to expand the impact of your work.
By being part of a growing network, you will have access to information about road safety projects around the world. This means you have a pool of resources and implemented projects meaning shared knowledge; you don't have to re-invent the wheel when someone else has done it in another place! You can learn from each other through our regular Spotlight features, showcasing of good practise and opportunity to be coached by the network.
The Multiplier Effect
Being part of the network means that any information you post will automatically be sent to the global youth network, we call this the 'multiplier effect'. This means that any update about your project will be transmitted to a global network giving your project increased exposure, credibility and the potential to find donors for your work. A group working together offers your project help from across the world and you can bring you expertise to the table to help the network.
Solidarity and Support
Working on your project or in your organization can often be lonely or isolating; joining our network offers your solidarity and support with like-minded and like-driven people who are working towards a similar goal; road safety and young people. The YOURS network operates in a professional and friendly atmosphere giving you the tools to collaborate and motivate each other. Joining the network also enables you to bring your local/regional/national issues to a global level which will amplify awareness of your cause and maximise the local needs of a particular region.
Increased Visibility and Credibility
As a member of the network, visibility of your organization is brought to a global level; thousands of people log on to YOURS website each month meaning showcasing your project or organization could give you the visibility you need. Additionally, you will be able to download the YOURS Network logo (available only to members), media and resources which will be made available the network only. YOURS will also support selected organizations in finding donors, resources and funds to maximize their projects' impact.
