The importance of this region in terms of youth work can be highlighted by the fact that almost 30% of all proposals towards the Italian National Agency stem from Sicily.Additionally the significance of Sicily regarding the scopes of the project in comparison to other regions of Italy can also be pinned down to the fact that it has a comparatively higher percentage of active associations.
