Youth for Exchange and Understanding (YEU) is an International Non-Governmental Youth Organization established in 1986 and member of the European Youth Forum in Brussels as an INGYO. YEU looks forward to increase tolerance and awareness between different countries, cultures and traditions, and to promote a greater level of comprehension through the development of various youth activities. The main aim of YEU is to promote peace, understanding and co-operation between the young people of the world, in a spirit of respect for human rights. YEU is a non-profit making, interdenominational youth organization independent of all political affiliation, run by young people for young people by means of a democratic structure.

CEREBRA is an organization that works on the empowerment of youth in Bosnia and Herzegovina by equipping them with modern knowledge, transferable skills and attitudes required for a success. Our Mission is to create young winners equipped with modern knowledge, transferable skills and attitudes required for success. CEREBRA mainly works with youth although its target groups are older adults too. We organise seminars to provide opportunities for the youth to learn skills that are required on the labour market, we provide opportunities to our members to travel around the region and elsewhere in Europe. We believe that acquiring modern/transferable skills and gaining experience from their peers are the most important elements for one's development in our rapidly changing world. Our activities are predominantly aimed at educational programmes and travelling opportunities.
The meeting will be based on non-formal education methods, encouraging active participation of young people involved. Some of the methods used will be the following:
• Ice-breakers, energisers.
• Inputs from experts
• Intercultural and experiential learning
• Variety of visuals for thematic input
• Brainstorming and discussions both in working groups and in plenary.
The working language of the training course will be English.
