ODLAZAK MLADIH IZ bihDaily work and activities of Youth Officers in local communities are extremely important for the development of their communities, and for every young person they work with. Therefore, perfecting and improving the position of Youth Officers is one of the priorities of the Institute for Youth Development KULT, because we need to join forces to improve the position of youth in this country and help them to truly become active citizens.

Youth Officer seminar entitled “Youth Leaving BiH: Opportunities and Challenges” is intended for Youth Officers to learn about the current situation and the ways they can act to create a positive climate for youth in every local community.  

Youth leaving BiH has been a burning issue in BiH for the past few years. According to the results of the Survey on the Position and Needs of Youth, published in 2013 by the Institute for Youth Development KULT, approximately 150,000 young people left the country from the end of the war until 2013.

After 2013, sporadic analyses were published by non-governmental and international organisations that show a continuous growth in the number of youth who decide to leave the country, but there is also the phenomenon of entire families leaving. According to an online survey published by the Institute in the summer of 2017, youth leave primarily because they don’t see a promising future for themselves, they’re dissatisfied with the educational and healthcare system, because of rampant corruption, nepotism and unemployment.

This situation clearly calls for the involvement of all relevant actors in solving the existing problems, primarily through creating a strategic approach and the accompanying activities that will contribute to creating an atmosphere that inspires youth to stay, or return to. Particular emphasis should be on the way BiH responds to the needs and problems of young people who choose to stay, and ways of creating concrete measures for cooperating with young people abroad.

The event will include around 25 Youth Officers from BiH, and guests such as representatives of entity and state institutions competent for youth issues, and representatives of various organisations, business communities, educational institutions and young people, who will share their experience, including both positive and negative aspects.

Information, recommendations and opinions gathered on the relevant topics during this event will be available to relevant institutions in charge of youth issues at all levels of government and used to design Youth Officer trainings.

Participants of the event are exclusively Youth Officers from all levels of government in BiH, who previously completed the Basic training for Youth Officers or are currently participating in the training.

The conference will be held on March 5-8, 2019 at the Hotel Hills in Sarajevo, starting at 3:30 pm.

If you are interested in participating, please complete and submit the online form: http://mladi.org/myURL/seminar2szm .

The Institute for Youth Development KULT will cover the cost of organising the seminar, work material for the seminar, and full-board accommodation.

How to be more approachable and how to create a more youth-friendly environment? This was the topic discussed by participants of the Youth Officer Training, members of the Municipal Assembly of Ilidža and Expert Youth Work Associate of the Ilidža Municipality, Amra Bojičić. Assembly members Samir Avdić, Redžo Lemezan and Ahmed Krupalija answered the participants’ questions.

The participants shared their experience with working with youth in different local communities in BiH, discussed ways of employing youth, positive practice and implementation of initiatives, and adapting the way they communicate with youth.

It was also noted that it is extremely important to support youth in their efforts to become independent by starting their own families, buying a home and launching a business. The discussion also included laws and strategic documents, and the Ilidža Municipality was mentioned as a good example in terms of their work with youth and creating and implementing strategic documents.
