YERP Starts Migration and Trafficking Trainings in High Schools

5/15/2011 The MDG-F Youth Employability and Retention Programme YERP organized trainings on migration and trafficking in high schools during the month of May. The trainings were held in the Economics School in Bihać, Livno and Zenica Gymnasiums, and the Economics School in Tuzla. A total of 114 graduating students from these four towns attended the trainings. More trainings will be organized over the summer in cooperation with youth organizations and youth-focused NGOs throughout the country.

The goal of the migration trainings was to share with young people basic information on the concept and types of migration, with a particular emphasis on irregular migration and the possible dangers that young people may confront if they choose to migrate “irregularly.” As part of the training, the young people received information on support they can receive from the CISO centers as well as through Migration Service Centers, such as information on the visa-free regime and useful links if they choose to continue their studies either in BiH or abroad.


The Youth Employability and Retention Programme (YERP) is supported through the Millennium Development Goals Fund, and financed by the Government of the Kingdom of Spain. The programme is jointly implemented by IOM, UNDP, UNFPA, UNICEF and UNV, in partnership with the BiH Ministry of Civil Affairs, the BiH Ministry of Human Rights and Refugees, entity Ministries of Labor and Education, the BiH Agency for Statistics, respective entity offices of statistics, employment offices across the country, non-vocational primary and secondary schools, municipalities and rural communities, individual enterprises and associations from the private sector and civil society organizations from the community level to the diaspora.
