But the question is, what we wanted to tell you from above insights?

We’re talking about a Montenegro based Youth Club whose name is Omladinski klub Niksic. This club of around 20 young dynamic people has realized their potential which can bring change to the lives of many. Let’s hear their voice and help them to respond their issue with our suggestions in comments. Get inspired from their initiatives!

That they can do someting for their community, spend great time with great people. To prove that we have so much to offer , to do…That in our city someone actually do something, not just talk that they will do. We are change, it will take some time. But we will do everthing tomake better place for youth, create them opportunities that we didn’t have.”Netalija Boskovic

On Avgust 8th 2014 International Youth Day was promoted in Niksic by the association of young ‘Omladinski klub Niksic ‘in cooperation with the NGO ‘Nasa buducnost’ and NGO ‘Alfa Centar’ .

We have successfully finished our first activity and promoted the Youth Day. That day 20 young people from the association had activities all day. We started with the meeting with Deputy Mayor of the Municipality of Niksic Mr. Milorad Jovanovic , where we talked about our goals and activities and got feedback from Municipality of Niksic that they would help us in the initial phase of our work.

We continued our ctivities on Square of Liberty where we promoted traffic safety through the program ‘Responsible and Safe’ and our citizens had the opportunity to try our ‘drunk glasses’ , then we collected the help (school supplies, toys, clothes, candy ) for children with disabilities from Day Care Center

Activities

We encountered great interest of citizens to try out ‘drunk glasses’ and to try to walk in a straight line in which they didn’t succed. In the street ‘Njegoseva’ there was on exhibition of painting ‘Struga’ by Mr Zoran Micanovic
