BRAVO is organizing the First Winter Academy which will be held online. The First Winter Academy presents perfect opportunity for young people to become part of a great story and the best part is that you can take part in it from the comfort of your home!


The main goal of the Winter Academy is to give young people the opportunity to improve various skills and engage in intercultural dialogue. By actively participating, young people will expand their knowledge and become part of the network of young leaders and creators of positive changes in Bosnia and Herzegovina.




The seven different organizations from the countries of Belgium, Spain, Croatia, Kosovo, B&H, and Albania are united within the project ‘’Empowering Human Dignity of EU & WB youth”.  Their main mission is to during the next three years implement project activities that will provide more than 500 young people from Europe and Western Balkans with educational opportunities, through which they will get the opportunity to develop skills and learn more about leadership.


The partner countries in this project are the following:

  • World Youth Alliance Europe for Belgium
  • World Youth Alliance South Eastern Europe for Croatia
  • World Youth Alliance Spain for Spain
  • EPOKA University for Albania
  • KVRP for Kosovo


The main focus of the Winter Academy is to educate young people. The main goal is to identify the best candidates with the highest ambitions in order to provide support in reaching their maximum potential, not only through completing all the Academy’s programs but also through establishing connections with other young people.


The Winter Academy incorporates learning and mentorship, enabling participants to put their knowledge into practice. Besides academic and professional growth, the Winter Academy puts a special focus on the personal development of young people, equipping them with the necessary tools to overcome challenges, discover themselves but also develop skills to thrive as young leaders of the society.
