The Youth Club “2BFriends” is a voluntary organization of young people aged 12-18, part of the Prevention Program at Pulse Foundation. It gives an alternative to the young people to make a personal choice and become individuals with their own intellect, civil position, sensitivity and identity.
The Youth Club “2BFriends” was founded in 1999, immediately after the founding of Pulse Foundation. Pulse Foundation was only several months old organization when we started gathering in its office together with the team (of psychologists and jurists), and talking about the violence in our society which surrounded us and we witnessed every day.
