Bujanovac – Around twenty trainers from South Serbia and Sandzak participated in the second module of the training for working with young people in multi-ethnic communities.  

During the training, which was organized in Bujanovac by the Civic Initiatives, the participants will learn, through workshops, seminars and exercises, about presentation skills and about how to prepare and conduct training courses.   

Working with the young requires continuous improvement and adjustment to the new techniques of communication and education. That is why it is important that trainers, regardless of how experienced they are in their work, constantly learn and are always ready for new challenges, it was said at the two-day training.

As part of a several months’ long training program, which is organized by the Civic Initiatives, trainees will have the opportunity to learn how the local community functions, what training courses, exercises and workshops can provide the best results when working with young people and motivating them to become active and empowered.

The training course, which is held in Bujanovac, is the second module of the training that started in October 2013 with the topics of human rights, discrimination and ethnic conflicts. 

This time, the trainers focused on how training courses are designed, how they are  conducted  and on how different topics and subject matters are presented to the young. 

The third module of the training will be held in December 2013. The most successful trainees will be recruited and will have the opportunity to gain practice and continue  improving themselves through the YouthBuild program, which the Civic Initiatives implement in South Serbia and Sandzak.  

The training program for trainers from South Serbia and Sandzak is organized by the Civic Initiatives, with the support of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) and the Caritas Luxembourg Foundation.
