On April 2-3 she teamed up with three other FLEX alumni to conduct a workshop about volunteering, human rights and environmental protection for 15 high school students. The project was hosted for free in a local hotel which is owned by the FLEX alumna.

On the second day the students had a chance to give back to the community by cleaning up a picturesque area near a river.

The project was covered on a FLEX Alumni Montenegro Facebook page. The organizers are now planning a reunion where they will asses their GYSD project and discuss future joint initiatives.
