UMiD Online Centre Opens in Sarajevo

The Institute for Youth Development KULT and the youth organisation “Nautilus” from Sarajevo signed a grant agreement today, as part of the UMiD online initiative. The Institute for Youth Development KULT issued a public call inviting all youth organisations from BiH to apply to become one of the four regional online UMiD centres in BiH. Jasmin Beši?, the Executive Director of the Institute for Youth Development KULT emphasised that he is very pleased with the vast number of applications from youth associations and organisations, and said that the best ones were selected. 

“The goal of providing support to youth organisations is to enhance the network of cooperating non-governmental organisations in BiH. The online training courses in UMiD Centres will include technical, administrative and advisory support to youth”, said Beši?. 

Milan Todorovi?, President of the youth organisation Nautilus, expressed his gratitude for the support received and and hopes that a substantial number of youth will use the knowledge and skills acquired to find employment. He also thanked the SOS Children’s Village in BiH for initiating the establishment of the “Nautilus” youth organisation, and providing them with logistical and organisational support.

Amir Omanovi?, Director of the SOS Children’s Villages in BiH pointed out that SOS Children’s Villages are present in 133 countries worldwide, but that BiH is the only one with a nongovernmental youth organisation. He promised to provide “Nautilus” with all the support they need, and thanked the Institute for Youth Development KULT. The association “Nautilus” has been active since October 2014, and its main goal is improving the position of youth in the society, regardless of gender, religion, nationality, education, etc. The primary goal is to animate as many youth in local communities as possible, and to work on strengthening the social responsibility of youth through cooperating with public institutions, nongovernmental organisations promoting youth work, and other organisations dealing with youth issues: education, health sector, culture and arts and sports organisations. The support provided by the Institute will be of great importance to the youth in “Nautilus”.

In addition to Sarajevo, another online UMiD Centre was opened in Jablanica, and centres will be opened soon in Srebrenica and Velika Kladuša.
