Education and professional orientation fair

Association KULT Gradacac, within the realization of the pilot project "WBP – Professional orientation"
which is supported by the German society for technical cooperation – GTZ, has on Wednesday 28. April
in city cinema in Gradacac held a "Education and professional orientation fair" as the central happening
for the students of eight grade of the elementary schools of Municipality of Gradacac. All of this was
actually a part of regional project titled "Creation of conditions for transfer of youth in the world of
vocation in Wester Balkans" that is realized by GTZ with the cooperation of respective ministries in B&H.

Association KULT has with the support of organizations GTZ, OSCE and Municipality of Gradacac
organized presentation of high schools from our municipality and high schools from neighboring
municipalities that have schools and professional titles and professions that are not represented in the
high schools in Gradacac.
The fair was designed as the happening that will gather in one place representatives of high schools,
with the basic data about the plan of enrollment for 2010/2011 school year and students of the eight
grade of the elementary school which will, in indirect contact, gain the information that will help them in
making decisions about further education.

High schools that have presented themselves on this fair had offered printed materials, video
presentations of the schools, and in indirect contact with representatives of the schools have left the
possibility for answering questions about anything that the students were interested about: education
for specific vocation, duration, terms for enrollment, and all other details.

Result of this manifestation can be seen in that that the young people familiarized themselves with the
plan and program of the high schools in the area of Municipality of Gradacac and wider, and with that
the number of deficit vocations will be decreased because the youth were informed at the enrollment
about the offers and needs of the labor market.

New training of youth leaders UMiD, generation 5 and 6, has started
Association KULT for the fifth year is conducting certified training of youth leaders UMiD that offers to
the youth trough informal education to gain additional skills, develop their capacities and familiarize

additionally motivates them to involve in social processes.

The training includes 12 two-day workshops whose subjects youth cannot find in regular education, such
as: youth policy, managing of the project cycle, team work, solving of conflicts. Besides the workshops,
the youth will go trough practical part of the training, that is, they will conduct 22 initiatives or little
projects that will directly influence on enhancement of situation in communities from which they come.

Projects of youth leaders of the training UMiD, generation 4

"What to do with bags?" is the project organized by the participants of the training UMiD and volunteers
of KULT, that is trying to strengthen the ecological awareness amongst youth, about increase of
pollution of our environment, ways of recycling and environmental preservation. These activities we
have conducted with the cooperation of six divisions of the first grade of the Fourth Grammar School
Ilidza. The director of the school and the teachers have supported our initiative and have given their
classes of class education and art classes, where we have within the classes realized workshops with
practical examples of useful appliance of waste material in everyday life, making of wallets from the
tetra-pack or paper bags from old newspapers. Youth have received the paper bags for use at the end of

Video "The big ask" was shown to the students. It is a three minutes long film about global warming and
eventual consequences that cold happen to the Earth if it is continued with it's current pollution. After
the presentations, we played the game "Don't leave traces" with the students.

In East Ilidza, on 22. of May, was held a street campaign titled "Involve yourself", that had for a goal the
affirmation of youth activism. Activists of the youth councils together with pupils of elementary school
"Jovan Ducic" from Kasindol have walked trough streets of our city, distributing brochures with all
necessary information about youth activism in their local community. In this symbolic way the youth
have adverted to this very important factor of the development of our surroundings.

We're dancing la la la...

Theme for May for the School of Friendship was music. Combining different natural and developed
materials the children made musical instruments creating them as they wanted and using their
imagination. The result of the freedom of expression were little items of different shapes, dimensions
and colours with the ability of reproducing unusually interesting sounds. At the same time, volunteers
were the trainers of dancing steps of folklore and modern dance. The children will have the chance to
show their skills and dance abilities next month when a little manifestation for the parents was planned.
We will let you know how it went...

Meeting of the youth organizations in Bijeljina

During the month of May another regular meeting of youth organizations was held in Bijeljina. This
meeting had a goal to start the initiative on improving the position of youth in Municipality of Bijeljina
and to take concrete steps with which the status of youth in the area of this Municipality would be

strategy for work with youth in this area.

I am currently student of Medresa "Osman ef. Redzovic" in Visoko and I am very good and exemplary
student. After I have finished my primary school, I have decided to enrol in this school, because I think
that today's society has gone into a big crisis from which it can pull out, and if the school is of internship
type is the only way to get away from it. I have participated on many seminars, workshops and
campaigns which have greatly helped my political and social education. Since the April of 2010 I am the
president of the Network of Pupil Councils of Zenica – Doboj Canton, and I am from this year president
of the Pupil Council in my school.

Concerning the current state of youth in our country, we can rightfully say that it is not on a satisfactory
level. Even more, it could be say that the youth are in a very difficult position. Everyday the decisions are
made that are directly concerning youth without anyone asking them. The decisions are made without
their knowledge. I think that it is possible and necessary to fix this status by greater activity of youth,
and their devotion for their role in the society.

Recent experiences in the field of Youth activism:

Concerning my recent experiences in the field of Youth activism I am very satisfied, because I have until
now tried to activate myself in all fields that are useful for, concretely – high school students. I am
currently the president of the Network of Pupil Councils of Zenica – Doboj Canton, that has been
recently formed and we try to connect with greater number of associations and organizations so that we
can work together on numerous projects. I hope that this is one of the means to network and jointly act.

I have participated on many seminars concerning the youth, involving the youth in decision making
processes... I am currently working on two projects. One is concerning the ecology, and within the
project is promoted the strength, power and ability of the youth, and their activity in the field of
decision making process.

Second project is of two parts, and it is about a karaoke show on the Canton level. First part are internal
auditions in schools and it will be completed by the end of this school year. Every school will delegate
two members for the second part of the project, for the final competition.

I think that by networking with other association we could jointly realize various projects.
