A seminar for young promoters of the EYOF 2019 volunteers program was held in Sarajevo from the 9th to the 11th of October 2018. This festival, as the largest event for junior athletes aged 14-18, will take place in February 2019 in the host cities Sarajevo and East Sarajevo.
EYOF 2019 will host more than 3000 participants, and it will include competitors from 45 European countries. More than 1,000 volunteers from all over Europe will contribute to the organization of this event.
EYOF 2019 has signed the cooperation agreement with incubator of social innovations Munja, due to a need for capable and motivated volunteers. With the help of the French Embassy in BiH, and HE Ambassador Guillaume Rousson, a call was opened for 20 young people from all over BiH to become promoters of EYOF 2019 volunteers program.
The seminar was opened as part of the third anniversary of Hoću.ba platform, with welcome speeches of HE AmbassadorGuillaume Rousson, and EYOF 2019 director Senahid Godinjak. The seminar continued in the Olympic museum. Young people from Bihać, Prijedor, Bijeljina, Tuzla, Gornji Vakuf and Sarajevo planned the next month's activities during the three days of the seminar. Those activities are creative presentations that will be presented to university students, high school students, youth organizations and sports clubs throughout BiH. These presentations will result in numerous applications for volunteering in EYOF 2019, which will be a historical event.
Applications are still open, so we invite all young people to apply via our website: www.eyof2019.net and all information about applications can be found on FB page EYOF 2019 volunteers.
