“Youth workers must learn how to support youth in their initiatives for changes!” In a sense, this is the motto of the 4th module of the Training for Expert Associates on Youth Work, who, during the module, learned about working with youth in general, but also about the research and advocacy work and organisational skills.
Youth from 14 local communities, 26 of them, will soon become youth workers. Representatives of the Institute for Youth Development KULT, as the organiser of the Training, claim to be very pleased with the progress of the attendants. “So far, these youth have been through 4 training modules and learned how to work with youth in their local communities and about the role of an Expert Associate on Youth Work. We are glad that all the attendants of the training were very active and interested to work and develop common ideas. Soon, testing will be performed in which all the attendants will be given an opportunity to demonstrate how much they have learned” – stated Katarina Vu?kvoi? from the Institute for Youth Development KULT.
Amila Dedi? also shares the positive opinion on attendants’ progress. “It is very important for the future youth workers to recognise real problems in their local communities as well as at higher governmental levels, but also to recognise their capacities for resolving them. It is commendable that future youth workers, even though they are engaged in different issues affecting youth, stull recognise common and key problems. They quickly recognise their potential disadvantages and are very interested in correcting their mistakes and improving their future work” – added Amila Dedi?.
This Expert Associates on Youth Work Training is the second consecutive one organised by the Institute for Youth Development KULT. It aims to create a cadre that will be able to expertly work with youth in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
