Professional orientation through passport of competencies

At the beginning of July ORC Tuzla launched the project "Professional orientation through passport of competencies", supported by the US Embassy in Sarajevo.

The project will be implemented in the next 6 months and will provide support to at least 100 young people from the wider Tuzla region (Lukavac and Živinice) from the final grades of elementary schools and first grade secondary schools.

During the month of October, the first activities with youth ended. A total of 105 youngsters, who through a public call have applied to pass a set of "Life Skills" and "Employment Skills" workshops, successfully completed their training in mid-October. In addition to the acquired knowledge, the youth had the opportunity to have a good time, as well as the opportunity to exchange experiences and make new friendships.

Out of the 105 youngsters, 20 of them have had the opportunity to pass counseling for Passport of competencies, and thus draw up their own map and at the end of the consultation to get their profile of competencies by the consultants with whom the consulting process was led.

As part of the project "Know your CAT", which the Youth Resource Center Tuzla has been implementing on the most popular social media for young people, two more trainings were held in the field of creating and managing campaigns on social media.
We are witnessing that our peers spend most of their free time on social media - and that's why we need to get closer to them. Guided by this idea, the ORC Tuzla youth, as part of the aforementioned project, held training in Zvornik and Vitez for 10 young activists.

Young activists from Zvornik and Vitez mastered the skills and knowledge of campaigns, with a special emphasis on social networks.



The results of our training can be found on the official page of the project "Citizens Against Terrorism":

Video: HATE is not welcome in my WORLD!

As part of a project aimed at countering violent extremism, radicalism and terrorism, called Citizens Against Terrorism, members of the ORC Tuzla have recorded a video that transmits online violence to the offline world. The goal of the video is to raise the awareness of young people to the vicious and insulting comments they leave on social media, portals, etc. they leave the same scars as those face to face. The main message that transcends the whole video is that, if such behavior is unacceptable in the real world, then why has it become so normal on the Internet? In addition to the members of the Youth Center Tuzla, the members of the Center for Youth Development, PRONI Brčko, also sent their support. You can view the video at:
