The 2009 Camp”Zaedno Napred” (Forward Together) will unite 40 high school students, eight youth leaders who participated in last year’s camp, and influential community members to share experiences, exchange ideas, and debate issues in an open forum. The camp will be eight days long with a two-day pre-seminar in preparation for the camp. This camp will give youth the tools to understand their dynamic roles in society and to deal effectively with the challenges that they and their communities face. The camp will equip promising youth with information, leadership skills, team building skills, debating skills, and motivation to develop their lives and their communities.
Session topics will include human rights, ethnic integration, the history of all ethnic groups in Bulgaria, leadership skills, community responsibility, sexual education, discrimination and human trafficking. Social and government leaders will be brought in to discuss these topics and share their own experiences.
Knowledge of self and cultural identity will help participants define their roles as future leaders and productive citizens, and help their communities find an effective voice in Bulgaria’s democracy. Participants will be encouraged to put their newly-acquired skills into practice immediately upon returning to their communities by starting youth groups, working on community projects and participating in national youth networks.
