Event for Youth Officers: How Can We Build a Youth Friendly Community?

Everyday work done by Youth Officers in local communities is very important for the development of these communities, and for all the young people they work with.

Involving all competent institutions and all levels of government is extremely important for creating a youth-friendly atmosphere where youth will be motivated to live and actively contribute to their communities. Youth Officers are the first point of contact, and as such are perfectly positioned to encourage and advise youth.

That is why elevating and perfecting the position of Youth Officer is one of the priorities of the Institute for Youth Development KULT. Joining forces is the only way to improve the position of youth in our country and help them become truly active citizens.

The Youth Officer seminar titled “How to Build a Youth-Friendly Community” organized by the Institute is intended for Youth Officers interested in learning more about the mechanisms defined in youth laws, how they are implemented in local communities, and exploring possibilities for cooperation with other Youth Officers.

Bosnia and Herzegovina regulated youth work in three laws, in all three administrative units. These laws have the same definitions of youth, and share some youth work mechanisms. Still, the role of Youth Officers is not equally recognized in all local self-government units, and the implementation of the legal mechanisms is not happening at the same pace in all parts of BiH.

The importance of implementing all legal mechanisms for youth, the actual implementation and Youth Officer’s needs when it comes to implementation are some of the topics of this seminar for youth officers in BiH.  Over the course of several days, Youth Officers will discuss ways to successfully implement legal mechanisms defined in youth laws, and to improve their cooperation with other services in local communities, all of which is aimed at improving the position of youth.

The seminar will be held from September 30 to October 1, 2019 at the hotel Hills in Sarajevo.

The Institute for Youth Development KULT will cover the costs of organizing the seminar, provide materials for the sessions and cover full board accommodation costs. The Institute will not cover travel expenses.

The application deadline is Monday, September 16, 2019, 1:00 pm
