Brcko – Youth Workers Countering the Violent Extremism
In Brcko, on 2nd and 3rd of December a training was held on the topic ''Youth Workers Countering the Violent Extremism''.

''Youth Workers Countering the Violent Extremism'' aims to empower and support the existing skills and abilities of youth workers and give them new tools in order to observe, act and report on the radical behavior of young people in the digital and real world. The "classic" approach to youth work is working with groups of young people who come to any organized activity that uses non-formal education as a method. In order to change this approach and reach young people at risk from radical ideologies that can lead to violent extremism behavior, youth workers need to change their approach and create new tools and use new methods. As part of this project, advanced training for 30 youth workers was held on topics: Confronting conflicts and violent behavior, Working with individuals - advisory skills, Working with young people in the field and "Digital work with young people".

The counselors at the training "Youth Workers Countering the Violent Extremism" were Miralem Tursinovic and Jasmin Jasarevic, while members of the Youth Resource Center Youth Group were Slobodan Blagovcanin, Mirela Bikovic, Merita Sokoli, Amina Dzafic, Adi Selman, Emir Karamujic and Amila Selimbasic.
