During their first module, the new generation of youth leaders taking part in Learn, Think and Act! learned about teamwork and leadership.
Interactive work, non-formal education methods and experiential learning helped the participants learn the basics of leadership, think of themselves as youth leaders and consider their roles in the team and the way the team communicates.
“As far as the first module is concerned, I think this is the motivation I very much need, and I’m learning about the things I’ll need going forward. Training 14 generations of youth leaders is no small feat, and that’s the main thing that intrigued me and led me to apply.” – said Arslan Arnautović from Cazin.
When asked about his expectations from UMiD, Arslan said that he expects the training to transform him and teach him some new ways of reaching his goals when it comes to the position of youth in the Una-Sana Canton.
The first module was held from December 5th to 7th, 2019, at the Educational-Leisure Center for Youth SPAJALICA in Ilidža.
More than 300 young people completed the UMiD training, and this generation is the 15th. The participants are 25 young people from 21 local communities from across Bosnia and Herzegovina.
The training Learn, Think and Act! is an officially recognized form of non-formal education that provides youth with various competencies that will make them competitive on the labor market. It consists of seminars, practical exercises and volunteering.
All participants grow into active citizens who take the necessary steps to change the society they live in, assert their opinions and actively participate in decision-making in their communities.
