The Fourth Regional UMiD (Learn, Think and Act) Online Conference intended for youth of the region was held today in Srebrenica, organised by the "Friends of Srebrenica" Association and with the support of the Institute for Youth Development KULT.


The aim of the conference is to promote and develop individual and team skills in youth and to invoke self-initiative for civic activities, volunteering and self-employment.


Judging by the number of applicants, the Conference invoked a great interest in regional youth. Besides Srebrenica, the Conference was also attended by youth from neighbouring municipalities, such as Bratunac, Mili?i, Zvornik and Vlasenica. ?or?e Deuri? from Zvornik Youth Centre says that the Conference was a very positive experience. "The main idea is to connect youth and attempt to present the activities being realised in our surroundings elsewhere. To try and connect - to think good and do good. To be recognised as those who wish to contribute to the wellfare of the city and the region, and wider. Every single of these events signifies a positive experiece from which one can benefit in future work" - says ?or?e.


"Friends of Srebrenica" Association is one of four organisations in Bosnia and Herzegovina that has an UMiD Online Centre in its premises where youth will be able to participate in the training presented to them today.


"We wish to provide an opportunity for youth to take initiative, to show that they are capable, responsible, willing to educate themselves and make progress and to become youth leaders in their communities and influence all the important decisions in the social community through such an online training that was presented today at the UMiD Conference held in Srebrenica" - stated Dana Bu?alina, the Project Coordinator of the "Friends of Srebrenica" Association. 


Representatives of the Institute for Youth Development KULT emphasize that they are very pleased with the number of attendants at the Conference.


"This is the fourth conference being held in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The first three conferences were held in Velika Kladuša, Sarajevo and Jablanica. The training consists of twelve modules. These modules are very detailed, designed to be interesting and interactive to youth. Some of them are project cycle, writing projects, writing a CV, self-strengthening, human rights and other very interesting topics" - stated Mirela Ajanovi? of the Institute for Youth Development KULT.


The conference was attended by Biljana Raki?, Deputee Mayor of Municipality of Srebrenica, who emphasized the importance of such activities of non-governmental organisations, taking into account the support of local authorities for all events that improve the quality of living and youth activities in the municipality.


After successfully completing the online training, youth will become youth leaders who will, in a sense, present the bridge between the local community and the local authorities.


The project is supported by UNDEF.

The Third UMiD Online Conference in Jablanica was organised by representatives of the Youth Club "Under the Same Sun" in Jablanica, with the support of the Institute for Youth Development KULT. The Conference was opened by Haris HalilhodĹľi?, the Director of Youth Club "Under the Same Sun" in Jablanica, emphasizing that he is truly pleased for the cooperation with the Institute for Youth Development KULT. "The Youth Club "Under the Same Sun" has been operating since 1997. During the previous years we focused on different aspects of non-formal education. With this one, the UMiD Online Training, our work, in a sense, reached a higher level, precisely due to the fact that so far we have offered no training in an online version" - he emphasized. He invited as many youth as possible to apply for the training. "I am inviting all of you to understand this training as a possibility, not as an obligation. Trainings such as this one will expand your views and definitely improve the knowledge you acquire in schools or at faculty" - he concluded.  


Mirela Ajanovi? and Aziz ?ipa of the Institute for Youth Development KULT presented the training to youth and emphasized that youth will become youth leaders after successfully finishing the training and that they will be the bridge between youth in their local communities and the government. "The most successful attendants of the training will be awarded with a small grant for implementing good ideas that can be realised and that can improve the situation in their local community" - emphasized Mirela Ajanovi? of the Institute for Youth Development KULT. Finally, the Institute announced the final regional conference that will be held on 23 July in Srebrenica.

The burning issue of youth in Bosnia and Herzegovina, regardless of their level of education, is unemployment. The research indicated that over 60% of youth aged 15 to 30 are unemployed. The unemployment is precisely what causes competitiveness on the labour market. Today youth must acquire additional knowledge and skills to become more competitve on the labour market. 


Through non-formal education, which is in fact an organised process of out-of-class learning directed towards training and improvement for employment, for performing different social services and for personal development, UMiD (Learn, Think, Act) training will aid youth in becoming aware of their possibilities and learn the basis of 12 different areas. Concretely, the training will aid youth in becoming ready for the labour market.


UMiD (Learn, Think and Act) Online Training will be presented to youth in Sarajevo. The Second Regional UMiD Online Conference, organised by the "Nautilus" Youth Association, with the support of the Institute for Youth Development KULT will be held on Thursday, 9 July at SOS Kinderdorfs BiH - Hermann Gmeiner Resource Centre.


The Conference will be opened by Lejla ?iši?, the SOS Kinderdorf International Programme Director, and the participants will be addressed by Milan Todorovi?, the President of "Nautilus" Youth Association, Mirela Ajanovi? of the Institute for Youth Development KULT and Professor Dr. Ismet Sejfija, the designer of the course.


In the previous period, UMiD Online Centres were opened in four towns in Bosnia and Herzegovina, where those youth who do not have that possibility, will participate in training that had been conducted 11 times in a classroom version before it was made available in an online version. Regional UMiD Online Conference was already held in Velika Kladuša, and in addition to Sarajevo, it will be held in Jablanica and Srebrenica.
