Date & place
Programme will take place in Don Bosko centar in Podgorica, Montenegro, from 11th June to 1st July 2018.
Youth center "Don Bosko" was founded in 1998. in Podgorica. It is very well known for its preventive way of work. It is open to all children and young people aged 7 - 18, regardless of their ethnic or religious affiliation. Most of our participants are coming from socially vulnerable families and we give them a chance to acquire knowledge and skills through non-formal education in their free time. Here they can learn, make new friendships, develop healthy habits and grow into mature and responsible people, who will become active citizens in the local community.
