Working and Learning with High School Students – Volunteering is COOL PDF  | Print |  E-mail

Fifteen high school students were hosted on May 25, 2016 at the Institute for Youth Development KULT and the Educational-Leisure Center for Youth SPAJALICA as a part of the Social Day. The students spent a “workday” at the Institute, during which they learned about working in the non-governmental sector, youth activism and the manners of including themselves in the political life of the community.

This was the first volunteering experience for many of the students. “This is my first volunteering experience and in the following period I will strive to engage myself in other volunteering activities as well. To spend a day in such a manner is a great experience and the most important thing is that I’ve realized the relevance of social engagement” – stated Ilvana Podgorica, a student of the Secondary School for Environment and Wood Design.

The Social Day is a part of the “Volunteer and Credit” project and the idea is for the students to exchange one day of attending classes with a day of volunteering in companies and NGOs. They will be paid a wage for their work intended exclusively for the requirements of their projects.

The “Volunteer and Credit” project is being realized by the “Infohouse” Association and the main goal is to strengthen youth capacities in order to train them to take responsibility for their professional future, local community development and improvement of youth status as a whole.
