WHO’S ORGANIZING IT?

The Institute for Youth Development KULT (hereinafter: Institute) is issuing a public call for a one-year training for young leaders Learn, Think and Act!, Generation 15.

SOUNDS GREAT, BUT WHAT IS UMiD?

UMiD is a one-year training, an incubator for young leaders active in the democratic society. UMiD is a training that prepares you to become an active leader in your local community and take part in solving youth problems, while at the same time preparing for your own career, learn new skills, meet new young people like yourself, socialize and grow. If you’d like to see what participants think about UMiD, take a look at this video.

OK, I GET IT, BUT WHY A WHOLE YEAR?

UMiD comprises seven 2-day workshops and a summer school on topics that you as a young person need to know about if you want to be an active member of the society. Workshops will be held once a month, starting in December, and spanning Thursday, Friday and Saturday. During the summer you will take part in our summer school. The times stated in the public call are not final, and the Institute reserves the right to change the dates and times of the workshops. The participants will be notified of any changes on time. The complete text of the public call and the module schedule is available HERE. 

During the UMiD training, you will learn how to encourage your peers to get involved in solving problems faced by young people in your community, how to convince decision-makers and other members of your community to support youth in a concrete way, how to navigate the world of business, and many other useful things.

We give you the opportunity to put to use everything you learned during the training and conduct a local civil initiative that will address a problem or a need you identified in your local community. You will design the local civil initiative (LCI) together with the young people in your community, and the Institute will support you with funds and mentorship.

WHERE IS ALL THIS HAPPENING?

Our modules will be held at the Educational-Leisure Center for Youth SPAJALICA in Ilidža, and we will be visiting some other interesting locations during the training.

HOW MUCH WILL THIS COST ME?
