How Can Youth CVOs Work With Public Sector and Business Sector?

Borovets, Bulgaria, April 2-6, 2004

Balkan Children and Youth Foundation is organizing a three-days training course on practical skills and relevant knowledge about partnerships with government and business companies.

The training is designed for senior staff of CVOs active in youth development, running programs in the areas of education, civic education, employment, health, culture, and leisure time. The CVOs should be based in one of following countries: Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Moldova, Romania and Serbia & Montenegro.

In this course we provide an introduction to the world of corporate support and of local and central government institutions. We will address questions such as:

How I can match my organization’s needs with the interests of a business and of government?
What non-monetary support will they be able to provide to my organization?
How do I fund out if a particular company funds CVOs?
How do I approach government offices and business companies?
How I keep a good relationship going?
The sessions will answer to these questions and more. The training will be delivered by experts from Bulgarian Charities Aid and Organizational Development Foundation of Bulgaria.

“Give pleasure to your boss!!!”
These days, a new commercial about a new coffee brand appeared on TV. I presume you’ve already seen it. A secretary slips when bringing coffee to her boss, slides down his desk on her stomach to stop in front of him with the coffee in her hand? I am not sure how you react to it, but after I had seen it for the first time I was left with my mouth open. It was a mixed feeling of bewilderment, sickness, disbelief…how could somebody think of something like that? How could nobody react to this commercial?

Expeditio, Kotor, Montenegro
Our vision is a quality space for better life
We decided to make an unusual interview with three people, as they themselves are unusual, as well as the association they are members of. Aleksandra Kapetanovic, Biljana Gligorovic and Tatjana Rajic are three young architects, who dedicate their creativity, knowledge and enthusiasm to cultural heritage, architecture, spatial planning and the civic sector in Montenegro, particularly focused on Boka Kotorska and its surroundings.
Violeta Tanceva – Zlateva
My attitude towards the language
“People who are of the same origin and who speak the same words and who live and make friends of each other, who have the same customs and songs and entertainment are what we call a nation, and the place where that people lives is called the people's country. Thus the Macedonians also are a nation and the place which is theirs is called Macedonia.”
Armenian community in the Republic of Macedonia
About 110 families cherish both the Armenian and the Macedonian culture
The genesis of the Armenian communities on the territory of today’s Macedonia goes back to the medieval times as can be proved by the numerous papers, traveling notes by foreign travelers who stayed or passed through the towns where among other nations, lived the Armenians.
