Community Development Projects

Our community development projects aim to encourage volunteerism, develop academic and professional skills and strengthen community ties within Serbia. In broadening the scope of volunteerism within various communities, we give students the opportunity to develop innovative methods of problem-solving and increased experience in team work.

 

Under this initiative, we have a variety of projects:

 

Peer to Peer: Facebook Global Digital Challenge

During the 2017 Spring semester, our Novi Pazar team participated in the P2P challenge. The aim of this challenge was for university students to push back on online hate, prejudice, and extremism while empowering their peers.

Sketch Your Future with Us 

This program is to introduce university students throughout Serbia to various educational opportunities within and outside of the country.

Mural Paintings 

In a grant funded by the U.S. Embassy, Belgrade, we organised mural painting projects on schools throughout the south of Serbia. Involving youth from Novi Pazar, local youth and elementary school students from the school.

Community Cleanup

In Novi Pazar we have initiated trash clean ups between schools, increasing awareness of littering and its effects on the environment and encouraging students to take more pride in their communities.
