WE ARE TRAINING UP THE NEXT GENERATION OF CHANGE AGENTS IN BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINA.
PERSONAL & PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT
Our end goal is not simply creating college graduates, rather well-rounded industry leaders in the workforce. We work with local companies to recognize and respond to the gaps in textbook education by providing workshops to all of our current students and alumni. These workshops and training sessions highlight areas such as resume writing, financial literacy, team building, leadership, and professional development. These topics, financial literacy, in particular, are important building blocks toward future prosperity. In a world filled with corruption and mismanagement, it’s vital that our scholars are trained on ethical leadership and basic financial management skills to properly invest in their future. Speakers are professionals in the business and educational sector from both the U.S. and BiH, sharing from their experience in our selected topics.
Students learn invaluable skills to further prepare them for top positions in the competitive BiH workforce. These learning opportunities have proven to raise confidence within our students and create the strategic, ethical, and compassionate leaders of tomorrow.
BIH STUDENT LEADERSHIP SUMMIT
We bring together students of all ethnic, religious, and socioeconomic backgrounds for our leadership seminars. For many of our students, this is their first extended interaction with those of different ethnicities. In a country still experiencing the cracks of segregation from the civil war in the ’90s, this is a big deal.
We work to create a safe, open, and approachable space for youth of various ethnic and religious groups to dialogue. Because of deep-seated and systematic division, these opportunities are seldom provided through the private or public sector. our scholars grow in self-awareness, gain an understanding of different cultures, reconstruct perceptions of other groups, and become empowered to promote unity in their spheres of influence, resulting in a more unified region.
Promoting and encouraging unity through diversity in our programs help to strengthen leadership skills and develop global competencies for an ever-changing world and workforce.
