International Burch University (IBU) and the Institute for Youth Development KULT signed a cooperation agreement aimed at supporting young people in BiH, especially by encouraging them to learn and take part in some of the projects the IBU and the Institute are planning to launch together.
With this agreement, both sides agree to jointly create publications, apply to project calls, organize internships for students, hold various workshops for youth and employees, and share the resources they have available with each other.
“International Burch University will always support any activity that encourages youth to learn and gain new experiences. We aim to be at the vanguard of change and novelties in the education system in our country, because knowledge will always get young professionals where they want to be. We signed this agreement because we want to share knowledge with youth through various trainings and workshops. This deepens the cooperation we already had with the Institute, adding more segments that will allow our students to volunteer and intern on the Institute’s projects”, said Professor Mersid Poturak, Acting Rector of the International Burch University.
IBU has been recognized as an institution that invests heavily into educating high-quality and motivated youth and having access to the Institute’s capacities will make the results all the more effective and meaningful.
“The Institute for Youth Development KULT is successfully cooperating with many higher education institutions in BiH, which includes the International Burch University, who have been cooperating with us for years. The Institute and IBU want to deepen our cooperation, which is why we are signing this cooperation agreement. We will be implementing projects together, and offering students internships that provide a valuable professional experience. The Institute has been working with youth and for youth for more than 15 years, and this is just one way we’re continuing our efforts to improve their position”, said Katarina Vučković from the Institute for Youth Development KULT.
To ensure the long-term sustainability of our results, the Institute cooperates with all levels of government in BiH and the region while working on developing, amending and adopting laws and other documents, and cooperating with all institutions whose goal is to improve the position of youth.
IBU is in the front line of changing and improving education in BiH, in order to keep youth in BiH by offering them a quality education. IBU also supports entrepreneurship by offering them projects through the Burch Start Up incubator, turning them into entrepreneurs or the drivers of change in the world of business.
This agreement is a formal way of acknowledging our long-standing successful cooperation and activities we conducted together, and an impetus to try even harder and achieve even better results.
