Non-Formal Education as Shortcut to Employment

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.
