Milica Jovanovic - The students listening to the lectureOn April 15 Milica Jovanovic ’15 introduced students of her secondary school ‘Sveti Ahilije’ to the principles of volunteering and youth activism at a workshop ‘Youth for the World’. Forty students attended the event during which they learnt how to get involved in community service and exchanged their project ideas. Two guest speakers from a local NGO ‘God Save Rzav’ shared their volunteering experiences with the students.

After the workshop the participants donated clothes to the Red Cross and books to their school library. As a result, four big bags of clothes were transferred to the INGO while the school library received 20 books.

Encouraged by the participants’ enthusiasm, Milica now plans to organize an English Language Workshop for the school’s freshman students.
