The first UMiD Online Centre was opened in the Youth Club “Under the Same Sun” in Jablanica. As a part of the UMiD online initiative, a contract on awarding grants between the Institute for Youth Development KULT and this youth club was signed. Besides this city, the online centre will be established in three more â€“ in Sarajevo, Srebrenica and Velika KladuĹˇa. The Institute for Youth Development KULT invited youth organisations from BiH through a public call to apply and become one of the four Regional Online UMiD Centres in BiH.
UMiD (Learn, Think and Act) is a training that the Institute has been conducting for over 10 years in an in class form that 300 young people have attended. In order to respond adequately to the increasing interest of youth to attend UMiD and become youth leaders after completing it, we decided to make UMiD training available online as well. Thus, all youth are offered a chance to attend it. All that it takes is for them to have access to the Internet and a computer and they can attend the training at home. Those who are unable to, may access the training in online UMiD centres.
The trainees who prove themselves to be the most dedicated and the most successful, will have the opportunity of applying for small grants of the local civil initiative during the training to address the problems in their local communities by using knowledge and skills gained through UMiD online training.
