Glance at the local activities in Bosnia and Herzegovina – SETYN project
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” – Margaret Mead.
As you are already accustomed to, BRAVO team never rests and the time has come to share with you an overview of the local activities we did for the project Socially Empowered and Transparent Youth Network, SETYN for short.
Our team was in Zenica and Tuzla, where we managed to interest over 50 young people. Main focus of our workshops was on the following questions:
Where and how to develop precious set of skills of youth workers?
How to lead a youth NGO?
What is a key in becoming a successful project manager?
There is no greater happines to a trainer than to see participants’ interest in the topic, so we were immensely happy and open to answer the many questions of the participants and it is really a great pleasure to see the youth awakening.
As photos speak more than words, we invite you to have a look at the gallery.
