The Institute for Youth Development KULT will conduct the necessary research and develop the youth strategy.


Pursuant to the Youth Law of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina, all levels of government are required to have youth strategies. A youth strategy is a document developed by government institutions and detailing a programmatic approach to youth work. It addresses youth problems and needs, strategic activities, goals and measures for their implementation. 


 

Representatives of the Institute for Youth Development KULT attended a session of the Commission for Youth Issues of the Parliamentary Assembly’s HoR held on May 16, 2016 in Sarajevo.


The Commission was presented with the initiatives being realized by the Institute and the previous cooperation with the former assemblies of the Commission.


As emphasized by representatives of the Institute, the cooperation with the current assembly of the Commission is particularly necessary in the areas of implementing the Youth Law. The Law on Volunteering was also discussed, as well as the requirement for both laws to be prepared for all governmental levels. It was concluded that a stronger cooperation is necessary in the process of developing and adopting the Federal Youth Strategy as well.

The Youth Strategy is in fact a document with a program approach to activities directed towards youth, which includes defining the problems and requirements of youth, strategic actions, and goals of the strategy and measures for realizing the aims of the Strategy.


Previous researches have indicated that youth require different forms of training and places in which they could express their creative abilities, as well as to the disadvantages of the labor market and the requirement to continue working with youth after they step out of the formal educational system.


The research and development of the analysis will be conducted with the support of the Institute for Youth Development KULT and the Youth Council of IlidĹľa Municipality, the members of which will be conducting the survey.
