The Training for future youth leaders was held at the Educational-Leisure Center for Youth SPAJALICA in IlidĹľa on July 9 and 10, 2016.
During the 2-day training, youth from Doboj, Bijeljina and Sarajevo learned about the elections process and the methods of developing an election agenda. The aim of the training was to equip youth to recognize a quality election agenda and learn how to lobby for the problems of this population to be included in the election agendas of political parties in the 2016 Local Elections.
The training was attended by 3 youth that will be the leaders of groups in their local commuinties and who will transfer all their knowledge and skills acquired during the training to their peers.
In addition to working on strengthening their peers, the future youth leaders will by October, when the 2016 Local Elections are planned to be held, meet with representatives of local authorities in order to lobby for them to include a list of key youth issues in their election agendas. This list includes problems such as: employment, education, health care, social care, informedness and mobility, and sports, culture and youth leasure time.
At the end of July, an additional training will be organized for the leaders and members of their groups. The training should include around 30 youth.
