The group is in the process of organizing a new programme “Free to be you and me: Courage and tools to create peace and safety for young people of all genders and sexualities”, open for participants from project partners.

Posted by projects on Jul 31

From 20th until 25th of June SAVA WG and Velebit Association of Kuterevo organized a joined Training for Camp Coordinators in the Bear Refuge Kuterevo, gathering 20 young people who wanted to learn more about coordinating workcamps but also leading groups in other forms of group activities. What were then future camp coordinators were not only volunteers active in different SAVA organizations, but also EVS volunteers who are doing their short-term service in VAK – and who have the privilege of spending more than 6 days at this amazing place (which the rest of us envied them greatly)!
