The Youth Officer Training is attended by 16 Youth Officers from across Bosnia and Herzegovina. During the first module, the participants learned about teamwork, leadership, youth policies and youth work. The first module included two study visits, one to the Educational-Leisure Center for Youth SPAJALICA and one to the Museum of Optical Illusions in Sarajevo.

The training formally began on Monday, June 29, at the hotel Hills in Sarajevo, with an introductory address by the Executive Director of the Institute for Youth Development KULT, Mr. Jasmin Bešić, who welcomed the participants and wished them a productive training. He told the participants that the training will provide them with key knowledge and skills they need to contribute to improving the position of young people in their local communities.

“When a lot of little people do a lot of little, good things, this results in something big. These “little people” are youth officers. The first module met all my expectations and I’m looking forward to what’s coming next”, said Mr. Uroš Šušak, Youth Officer from Prnjavor Municipality and one of the participants.

Cooperation with Centar Municipality continued with this training program, since Centar’s Youth Officer, Ms. Minja Ćukar, is one of this year’s participants. She thanked the Institute for the opportunity to take part in the training, and said that she hasn’t felt so connected with a group of people in a while, adding that the group is so diverse it feels like a mini version of BiH.

The Institute for Youth Development KULT has been holding youth officer trainings and certified courses for expert youth work associates employed in municipal and cantonal administrations. The training program consists of 5 obligatory modules (120 hours) to be held from June to December 2020 in various cities in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The participants will receive their certificates in December this year.

This year’s training is implemented with the support of the Embassy of Sweden in Bosnia and Herzegovina and the Ministry of Culture and Sports of FBiH.

Everyday work done by Youth Officers in local communities is very important for the development of these communities, and for all the young people they work with.

Involving all competent institutions and all levels of government is extremely important for creating a youth-friendly atmosphere where youth will be motivated to live and actively contribute to their communities. Youth Officers are the first point of contact, and as such are perfectly positioned to encourage and advise youth.

That is why elevating and perfecting the position of Youth Officer is one of the priorities of the Institute for Youth Development KULT. Joining forces is the only way to improve the position of youth in our country and help them become truly active citizens.

The Youth Officer seminar titled “How to Build a Youth-Friendly Community” organized by the Institute is intended for Youth Officers interested in learning more about the mechanisms defined in youth laws, how they are implemented in local communities, and exploring possibilities for cooperation with other Youth Officers.

Bosnia and Herzegovina regulated youth work in three laws, in all three administrative units. These laws have the same definitions of youth, and share some youth work mechanisms. Still, the role of Youth Officers is not equally recognized in all local self-government units, and the implementation of the legal mechanisms is not happening at the same pace in all parts of BiH.

The importance of implementing all legal mechanisms for youth, the actual implementation and Youth Officer’s needs when it comes to implementation are some of the topics of this seminar for youth officers in BiH.  Over the course of several days, Youth Officers will discuss ways to successfully implement legal mechanisms defined in youth laws, and to improve their cooperation with other services in local communities, all of which is aimed at improving the position of youth.

The seminar will be held from September 30 to October 1, 2019 at the hotel Hills in Sarajevo.
