The training activity took place
in Andrevlje, Serbia
organised by Center for Support of Women
14.-20.03.2011

Aims & objectives

Ten years after the change of the political system in Serbia the aim of the project “Youth Policy and Youth Work in Transition: The Vojvodina as a multicultural challenge” was the sensitization and examination with the development of youth work and youth policy in the Vojvodina, a region affected by more than 20 nationalities and various ethnic minorities and cultural diversities.

Target group & international/intercultural composition of the group & team

Youth worker and project leader from EU27 programme countries and partner countries from SEE

Training methods used & main activities

Meetings with young people, youth organisations, persons in charge from politics and administration and other representatives of the public to discuss the interests, needs and demands of young people like scopes for development and personal responsibility, to experience the problems and chances of the current youth policy and youth work in Vojvodina and Serbia, to discuss the National Youth Strategy and the National Youth Strategy Action Plan adopted by the Government of the Republic of Serbia on January 2009 and the Action Plan of Youth Policy in Vojvodina - a strategy of the Autonomous Province of Vojvodina toward youth as well as to meet and to find partners for potential future co-operations and to strengthen regional co-operation and to implement stable co-operations for future activities in the frame of the Youth in Action programme

Outcomes of the activity

Participants and partner promoters met projects and partners that are supported through Youth / Youth in Action programme in the past as well as initiatives and organisations which were never in contact with the programme, providing information and opportunity to create projects and networking space for future co-operation within the Youth in Action programmed. Due to a very specific outlay of the programme as well as a well coordinated content structure it was possible to achieve a sustainable learning affect. This means, that results and evaluation showed that participants acknowledged and realized this well structured knowledge transfer.
