Educations on subject of activism, entrepreneurship, critical thinking and solving local community problems, leadership and fairness in decision making are some of the skills that young people will get familiar with trough this project. Through project, young people from Tuzla, Kalesija and Zivinice will build bridges of entrepreneurship, development of common ideas, and solving local community problems.
Young people represent a strong driving force and they can do anything they want. Sometimes, all you need is an education on how to make your idea come true.

We want young people to realize their potential, develop awareness about the importance of entrepreneurship and to discover their entrepreneurial spirit. One more, really important goal is the implementation of "peer-to-peer" education in which young people act for the benefit of young people, and strengthen the teamwork and leadership skills.

terms of entrepreneurship, types and myths about entrepreneurship, and marketing, which represent
a crucial part in any entrepreneurial plan.
In order for young people to recognize entrepreneurship as an opportunity for self-employment, they first
need get to know themselves.

presentation of a business plan, and the creation of high-quality CV and letter of motivation.
The event "NOĆ MOĆNIH PODUZETNIKA!" is an opportunity for future young entrepreneurs to meet successful local entrepreneurs and to hear their stories. The exchange of ideas, experiences, interests and development of entrepreneurial spirit are some of the activities provided by this event.
