Workshop: Healthy relationships.

Through the program “Life Skills” funded by the European endowment for democracy, the NGO Naša akcija in cooperation with the NGO Prima held a workshop on “Healthy Relationships” for the youth of Kotor and Tivat at the Youth Club Kotor.
The workshop focused on issues such as:
Is this love or fear of loneliness?
How do I know he loves me, and how do I know if he loves me too?
What is ok and what is not ok in a relationship?
How do I show love and does the loved one experience it that way?
Is my partner showing me love in the right way?
Your I in a relationship
Love is also belonging, where should individuality be preserved? i
Do you distinguish love from possessiveness ?.

In addition to the workshop, this activity provided an opportunity for young people from Tivat to visit and see the Kotor Youth Club and socialize with their peers in the area. For young people, mobility, socializing and exchanges are rare in this age of pandemics, but the possibility of connecting young people in this way in the Youth Spaces is a real opportunity that our NGOs plan to continue to use.

Young people from Tivat had the opportunity to hear from young people who volunteer from 1 to 6 years, who presented the benefits of volunteering, especially in terms of choosing their career, acquiring work habits and soft skills, establishing contacts and experience in applying for projects, college and scholarships, as well as the importance of gaining work experience during seasonal employment.

The Secretariat for Social Activities and the NGO Naša akcija organized this activity, which is part of the program “Career Education and Employability of Youth” with the support of the European Endowment for Democracy.

Time management workshop

A step into the world of adults, a step from primary to secondary school, then from high school to college or work requires much more responsibilities and skills than the education system transfers to young people. That’s why we’ve been talking about time management skills for the past few days to keep young people productive and successful. Time management is one of the most important skills we need to master throughout life because it is the key to satisfaction in professional and personal life. NGO Our action through the support of the European Endowment for Democracy continues the education of young people through the program “Career education and employability of young people”.
