Through the establishing of seven municipal Youth Councils (Gra?anica, Lukavac, Kladanj, Grada?ac, Srebrenik, ?eli? i Teo?ak), legal requirements were met for forming a cantonal Youth Council. The founding assembly of the Tuzla Canton Youth Council was held on July 30, 2013, in the offices of Gra?anica Municipality. Representatives appointed the Council management and presented the activities planned for 2013 and 2014.

Mirel Bijedi?, member of the Grada?ac Youth Council was appointed President.

Youth Councils are formed under the regulations of the Law on Youth of FBiH, and represent umbrella youth organisations which represent interests of youth and youth organisations on all government levels. The initiative of the Institute for Youth Development KULT has over the past two years helped establish over 40 municipal councils, and 4 cantonal councils.
