The Institute for Youth Development KULT and the Embassy of Sweden to Bosnia and Herzegovina will be implementing a 3-year Program for Empowerment, Employment and Social and Political Activism of Youth in BiH. 

The agreement on implementing the program was signed on October 13, 2017 at the Institute, by Marie Bergström, Counsellor at the Embassy of Sweden to BiH and Jasmin Bešić, Executive Director of the Institute for Youth Development KULT. 

The program will reach more than 5000 young people from across BiH, helping them become active citizens. During this 3-year program, youth will be provided with various trainings and activities that will teach them how to solve problems and encourage their peers in local communities to join them in those efforts. They will learn about being politically active and present youth problems to decision-makers, and how to launch and implement initiatives important for their local communities.

Trainings and civil initiatives will teach more than 200 youth leaders to cooperate with the authorities and the business sector, so that they can work together on creating an enviroment that will make youth want to stay in BiH, particulalrly in smaller communities. 

The program will also provide 40 young people with funds to start their own small business and try their hand at entrepreneurship. Funds will be awarded to implementing small local initiatives which will allow youth to actively participate in solving problems concerning ecology, lack of space where youth can spend their time in a meaningful way, and other problems they may have in their local communities. 


The program will be implemented across BiH and will involve close cooperation with representatives of the executive and legislative branch to improve the implementation of youth laws and ensure that youth are a top priority in domestic politics. Special emphasis will be places on cooperating with youth officers and helping them network with youth. 

The program will promote the advantages of active youth participation in social and political life, and show them that they can take responsibility for solving their problems. Focus will also be on gender equality, religious and ethnic tolerance. 

The program will be implemented by the Institute for Youth Development KULT over the next 36 months, with the financial support of the Embassy of Sweden to BiH.
