Cheerful Volunteers brighten up Bosnia Herzegovina for YEU Youth Exchange
May 2012 brightened up Banja Luka, the 2nd biggest city of Bosnia Herzegovina. The reason was no other but the realization of the youth exchange “Cheers for Volunteers!” organized by YEU international and hosted by YEU MO Cerebra.
The youth exchange collected 27 young people from Holland, Poland, FYROM/Macedonia, Serbia, Portugal and Bosnia Herzegovina between the 25 of May and 2nd of June 2012 to work and discuss on the topic of volunteering and its impact into the well being of young people. During the exchange, participants reflected on healthy lifestyle, the avoidance of risky behaviours and how volunteering can assist young people into increasing their personal well-being and their society's prosperity.
All outcomes of the exchange were celebrated in the production of the manual and an "Act it Out" session during which participants came in contact with the local community and promoted the values of our network to the local youth.
