By Erasmus+ rules organizers have to cover travel costs, accommodation and food.
In this project we are working on learning about Gender-based and sexual violence in love relationships of youngsters and opening all those issues that are, more or less, in all our societies connected with shame, fear, feeling of guilt, shortly said – taboos. We hope that you are looking forward to our training as much as we do! In the following pages of this document, you will find basic information about the first training, suggestions on how to prepare for it, information on the venue and how to get there, contact details and other useful links. Preferably, we would like to meet youth workers and youth activists as participants, who will stay in the project during the process and share knowledge gained here to your local beneficiaries.
- To gather 30 youth workers and activists from 10 countries to raise their capacities to work in the field of gender based and sexual violence in love relationships of youngsters;
- To share one of our values, which is love, as starting point to observe the world because we strongly believe that people educated to love cannot be easy target to those who wish to manipulate with them.
Each partner organization is expected to delegate 3 persons for this training and we prefer those who are active in the organization as youth workers or activists. This is because we need people who will be responsible to coordinate local activities. Also, we need persons with solid/good knowledge of English, older than 18. Take care, if possible, of sending participants of both sexes. People of all genders are welcomed. Unfortunately, the hotel isn’t equipped with an elevator and platforms so it’s not proper for persons using a wheelchair.
Training will gather youth workers from 10 countries involved in this project: Albania, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Estonia, Greece, Italy, North Macedonia, Serbia, Slovenia and Montenegro.
Organizers and team:
#YouthToo project is led by NGO „Prima“, a non-profit organization that is dealing with youth issues, established 2010, by years-long experienced activists in the civil youth sector. We are developing the following programs: Youth and Human Rights; Youth Policies, Non-formal education and Prevention of Violence among youth, Youth Mobility and Counseling.
We have a network of peer educators and activists in almost all municipalities, mainly active in schools, universities and youth clubs. Also, we are running some initiatives with institutions in the aim of prevention of violence among youth, gathering our members and peer educators with decision-makers. Also, we are working with University students in Montenegro, mostly training to raise their activism and training about advocacy and lobbying for student’s rights and standards. It’s good to mention that we have a representative in the Regional body for Civil Education. The work of NGO Prima is based on human rights, anti-discrimination and inclusiveness. Especially, we are working from women’s rights and minority rights base. In every project or action, we take care about gender balance.

ARRIVAL – Information about how to reach Bar and hotel “Sidro”:
Arrival day is 20. February and we expect you to be in hotel afternoon or evening. You can reach Bar by bus, train or airplane, to airports in Podgorica and Tivat that are just 1 hour driving away from Bar. The most of participants firstly have to reach Podgorica, capital of Montenegro, especially in case that they come by plane.
Airport with best connections in Montenegro is Podgorica’s airport “Golubovci”. Other option is to choose airport Tivat, but we recommend Podgorica. It has good connections with Belgrade, Rome, Istanbul, Brussels, Vienna, Budapest… Podgorica’s airport is small and you will finish with all procedures very quickly.
From Podgorica’s airport:
Unfortunately, there is no shuttle bus driving from and to airport. Our volunteer will wait at the airport next to info-corner NVO Prima and help you to proceed your trip to Bar. So, there are 2 options:
By bus From Podgorica’s Main Bus Station:
Buses are very often. One way ride costs 4 – 5 €. It takes 01.00 – 01:15 h to reach Bar and you have to leave a bus at last stop – Main bus station of Bar. Walk to hotel around 15 minutes. Please, check the map below. Bus time – table you can find on following link: https://busticket4.me/EN/1121-1165-132-0-0/0-1/Podgorica-Bar/20-02-2020/
By train from Podgorica’s Railway Station :
One way ride costs 2,40 €. It takes 1 hour to reach Bar. You have to leave a train at the last stop in Bar. Also, we recommend you to choose local trains, not fast-ones, because locals are more exact and on time. When you leave a train, walk to the hotel about 15 minutes.
