Stari Grad Municipality Provides Youth Space

During its 9th session, held on August 20th, 2013, the Stari Grad Municipal Council rendered the decision on establishing a Youth Office, affirming once again the importance of umbrella youth organisations, their active participation in the local community and partnership with the government. Members of the Youth Council were present at the Council session, proving that youth representatives do stay informed on the work of their elected officials. The Council members rendered the decision unanimously.

By establishing the Youth Office the Municipality is complying with the provisions of the Law on Youth regarding youth spaces. Since the youth in Stari Grad previously did not have a space in which they could organize activities or affirm their role in the local community, the new Youth Office is extremely significant for the development of the youth sector in the Stari Grad Municipality. The Municipality took on the obligation of funding the work of the Youth Office. 

The youth space will be the locus of the majority of youth activities, such as training courses, seminars and conferences, organized by the Youth Council and all youth associations in the Stari Grad municipality. In order to ensure that the Office is functioning at full capacity, the Stari Grad Youth Council will hire over 20 volunteers every year, thus providing them with long-term volunteering which will be registered as work experience. 


Ajdin Kahrovi?, president of the Stari Grad Municipality Youth Council stated: “We believe that the Youth Office whose functioning has been entrusted to us by this decision will prove to be the best mechanism of continuous progress in areas important to youth such as education, employment, staying informed, culture and sport. We are extremely pleased with the unanimous passing of this decision, and hope that the Municipality will continue solving youth issues in such an efficient manner.”
