Posted on May 2024


Youth Alliance opens call for young leaders from North Macedonia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Serbia, Kosovo and Albania for mentorship program under the project "European values for the future of the countries of South-Eastern Europe".

The activities of the project are ongoing (they will end by 31.12.2024), and the mentoring will last for a maximum period of 6 months, which will be determined as soon as possible, for 12 young leaders from the Western Balkans. 

The mentorship program should have 3 final projects that will be presented during the 22nd International Youth Conference 'European Values for the Future of Southeast Europe' and it will cover the following 4 phases and the following time frame:

1. MENTORING RELATIONSHIP [June 2024]
Participants and mentors are matched based on the needs of the participants and the strengths of the mentor
2. PROJECT PLAN DEVELOPMENT [June – July 2024]
Participants join an exclusively curated learning journey designed to address their main needs and challenges
3. ONLINE PITCH PRESENTATION  [September, 2024]
Participants have the opportunity to enhance their storytelling and presentation skills by presenting their pitch to an online panel of real donors.
4. IYC ALUMNI [October 2024]
Participants who complete all mandatory assignments receive a certificate of finalization of the mentoring program and join our exclusive network.

The purpose of the mentorship program is to provide foresight for the young leaders in the development of their ideas to final and actually implemented projects in the capacity building process. They are constantly advised and will need to compare predicted dynamics, providing information and advice on specific issues related to specific project ideas and actions. 

The deadline for submitting the applications is 30th of May, 2024 at 3 p.m., on the following application form.
