After successfully completing two modules of Expert Associates for Youth Work Training, the third module, entitled â€śSocial Competences and Organisational Skillsâ€ť is ongoing. The training, in which 26 youth from all over Bosnia and Herzegovina are participating, is being held at the Educational- Leisure Centre for Youth SPAJALICA.
This training for Expert Associates for Youth Work is the second in line being organised by the Institute for Youth Development KULT. The aim is to create a cadre that will be able to work professionally with youth, who are neglected by the society. Jasmina Keserovi? from Velika KladuĹˇa says that the training incited her to try and work harder in the area of youth work and that she will implement the knowledge and skills she acquired so far and will acquire by the end of the training at the Democratic Organisation of Youth of Velika KladuĹˇa where she works. Elma KarahodĹľi? from TeĹˇanj holds a similar opinion. â€śI am very pleased to be here. I have met many different people from various towns, and learned a lot along the way. I am certain that this knowledge will serve me well in the future. To me, personally, because I will be able to practically apply it in my local communityâ€ť â€“ states Elma KarahodĹľi? from TeĹˇanj.
The third training module is dedicated to social competences and organisational skills. The lecturers are Senka ?impo and Jasmin BeĹˇi?. The organisers of the training, representatives of the Institute for Youth Development KULT, are very pleased with the training itself and with the selected participants. â€śJudging by the reactions of the participants, it is visible that everyone is satisfied. What might be important is the clear willingness to learn and acquire new knowledge and skills. This module consists of two topics. The first one, social competences, was lectured by Senka ?impo. Our attendants learned how to work with youth by working on themselves. The second topic that starts today is dedicated to organisational management. Jasmin BeĹˇi? will explain to the participants from, for example, how to organise volunteers, to how to organise their organisationsâ€ť â€“ emphasized Katarina Vu?kovi? form the Institute for Youth Development KULT.
Eldar Komar from Sarajevo also confirmed that the attendants were satisfied. He says that the thematic wholes are coordinated with the requirements of working with youth. â€śExperienced lecturers with interesting working methods provide the attendants with the opportunity to express themselves creatively, exchange experiences and acquire new knowledgeâ€ť â€“ added Eldar Komar from the Youth Initiative for Human Rights in BiH.
Still, the most important thing is, as the training attendants agreed, to transfer the acquired knowledge and skills on and improve working with youth in local communities. Tijana Gruji? from Prijedor says that she will definitely work better in the future. The knowledge she acquired will be transferred to her colleagues at the organisation, she says. â€śThis will, hopefully, result in a greater number of happy and satisfied youth in Prijedorâ€ť â€“ she adds.
