The U.S. Embassy in Bosnia and Herzegovina is pleased to announce this grant opportunity to design and implement two BOLD (BiH Omladinski Lideri, Bosnia and Herzegovina Young Leaders) Civic Engagement Workshops for BiH Youth Leaders.
The goal of these workshops is to create opportunities for active participation and civic engagement of young BiH leaders in their communities through skill development; with special emphasis on the development and implementation of their own projects to address a particular need in the community.
The workshops should provide a broad foundation of skills needed to succeed in the civil society sector, including, but not limited to, the fundamentals of project management, innovative civic engagement project design, project-based collaboration, leveraging assets within the BOLD network to ensure project success, strategies to overcome apathy and skepticism, and how to work with other like-minded individuals or groups to lead the broader community toward positive change.
