English language conversation night

What is it like to be a young executive director of an NGO? Why do you want to leave this country? Do you expect changes in the country with new people at the helm? What do you plan to do next with your career? and much more, were the topics of discussion during the “English Language Chat” led by entrepreneur Danny Canas with young volunteers from the NGO Our action. This is the first chat of this kind and it will be organized every third Friday in the premises of the NGO in Podgorica. The aim of this workshop is to practice conversational English through discussion and sharing the opinions of young people. The chat is part of the education of young people through the program “Career education and employability of young people” which is realized with the support of the European Endowment for Democracy. #Europeanendowmentfordemocracy #Youtheducation #Obrazovanjemladih #Youthcareerdevelopment #Karijernirazvojmladih

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”.

We were hosted by our dear Aleksandrina Vujacic, an engineer, professor and designer of permaculture who motivated us with her detailed and honest presentation on the battle for the perfect product – an extract of young spelled grass. The NGO Our action organized this activity as part of the program “Nature for the physical and mental health of young people” and is funded through the institutional support of the European Endowment for Democracy.

Consultations about studying abroad

In cooperation with the Organization of Montenegrins Studying Abroad, the NGO Our action organized the last evening of consultations for studies abroad in our premises in Podgorica. As the end of December is the time when many high school and university students see challenges outside the borders of Montenegro in the field of basic and higher studies, we decided on this joint activity. The workshop was held in a small group due to current measures. Participants had the opportunity to hear something new from our wonderful lecturer Dimitrije Jovicevic about the application process for universities as well as the scholarships offered to our students. The NGO Our action organizes this type of education as part of the program “Career education and employability of young people” with the support of the European endowment for democracy.
