Youth Leadership Program

Status of the Program

The Youth leadership program (YLP) is one of the first and long lasting activities of TCMC that has succeeded to get implemented each year, from 2001. In each year we have succeeded to organize at least 6 training (four basic and 2 advanced) in at least four post conflict cities.   

In December 2009, TCMC in cooperation with the German organization Forum Civil Peace Service has restarted the Youth leadership program 2010. New generation of potential future leaders of our society is arising within this program.

The last activities concerning the YLC in 2010 cover 6 basic trainings (2 groups from schools in Skopje, 2 groups from schools in Struga and Kicevo, 1 group from schools in Kumanovo, and group from schools in Tetovo).  Each group was composed of at least 24 participants (total: 144 students). Forty students got the chance to be part of the summer camp that was supported by Council of Europe. Students from Kicevo and Struga performed already 8 trainings for their peer (192 students).

At this stage in 2011 we succeeded to organize one advanced training for the students form Struga and Kicevo. Jointly with Forum ZFD we plan to organize two more advanced trainings for groups of Skopje, Kumanovo and Tetovo.

 

Up to now these YLP trainings had been organized :

1. 16-18 December 2009, in Mavrovo – Training for the students from the secondary schools of the municipality of Struga ;

2. 19 – 21 February 2010, in the city of Ohrid – Training for the students from the secondary schools of the municipality of Skopje;

3. 26 – 28 February 2010, in the city of Kocani - Training for the second group students from the secondary schools of the municipality of Skopje;

4. 14-16 May 2010 - Training for the second group students from the secondary schools of the municipalities of Struga and Kicevo;

5. 28-30 May 2010 - Training for the students from the secondary schools of the municipality of Kumanovo ;

6. 23-25 October 2010 - Advanced Training on Conflict management and Mediation for selected group of students that underwent the basic trainings of youth leadership programme.

7. 28-30 November 2010 - Advanced Training on Conflict management and Mediation for selected group of students that underwent the basic trainings of youth leadership programme.

Remark : this time the trainings were facilitated with help of the teachers that underwent series of Peer-Mediation trainings. Once again the Youth leadership program showed to be a good platform for interlinking the projects of TCMC in to one strategic program that aims to raise the social responsibilities of students and teachers.
