Youth Regroup! Youth for Youth in Krajina! – Local initiatives

After the second training within the Youth Regroup! Youth for youth in Krajina, youth from 7 municipalities started implementing local initiatives designed during the training.

Upon returning to their communities, the participants actively worked on preparations, recruitment and on that occasion organized meetings with young people and representatives of non-governmental organizations in order to present the project and the importance and benefits of opening youth clubs.

The first local initiative was held in Ključ, within which the project participants organized an info desk and informed the public about the

needs and problems of young people, as well as the future program of the youth club. The activity was visited by municipal councilors, a youth officer as well as representatives of non-governmental organizations who expressed satisfaction with the promise that the initiative will receive their support.

In order to examine the needs and problems of youth as well as the degree of involvement in youth activism, project participants from Sanski Most created an online survey. They held a meeting with

members of CIM’s volunteer club to whom they presented the project and plans regarding the opening of the youth club. The workshop on youth activism that followed was their final activity.

The initiatives held in Ključ and Sanski Most, in addition to the excellent response of youth, aroused the desire and motivation of participants for further learning and involvement in the activities of the Youth Club, and the support of local authorities.

The implementation of local youth initiatives from the remaining municipalities follows so follow our page.
