Young people need and search for role models. They look up to athletes, scientists, public figures, which is why it is important to promote the right values. EYOF – the biggest sports youth olympic festival is the right place for youth to create their value system.
The European Youth Olympic Festival in Sarajevo and East Sarajevo (February 9-16) will be held at 8 locations, include thousands of competitors and volunteers who want to contribute to reviving the olympic spirit.
EYOF (European Youth Olympic Festival) is the largest olympic festival for young athletes between the ages of 14 and 18. This sports event includes youth from all around Europe in various sports and teaches them the values and ideals of the Olympic Charter. At the same time, this event motivates youth to do sports and foster healthy habits.
Another important aspect of EYOF, which contributes to developing skills in youth, is volunteering. The number of volunteers participating in the organisation of EYOF is commendable, and the Institute for Youth Development KULT is helping them understand the principles of volunteering and activism by holding workshops for volunteers.
The Institute will provide the volunteers with space in our Educational-Leisure Center for Youth SPAJALICA.
“EYOF is a perfect opportunity to teach young athletes from across Europe about the importance of ideals such as fair competition, respect, tolerance and friendship.” Jean-Michel Saive.
Well, young people. We’re ready for some fair sports competitions. We’ll see you at EYOF, in the mountains, at the venues. We’ll remind ourselves of the importance of volunteering, sports and Olympic glory.
