Donate to MSYP
The Mostar Summer Youth Program is a non-profit program staffed and run by volunteers. The program relies on donations, grants and sponsors to fund its activities. We thank you sincerely for your donation.
We are currently fundraising to support the launch of LAB (Learn, Advance, Bridge), a new summer program founded by Mostar local Bruno Stojčić in response to the lack of quality science education within the Bosnian education system. Due to the lack of expertise and resources in local high schools, school leavers are too often left without the practical experience relevant to further study and employment in STEM fields. LAB 2020 is being supported by University Džemal Bijedić Mostar, which has generously provided some of its laboratory space in-kind for the program’s use and by the Inclusive Movement for Bosnia and Herzegovina (IMBiH). However, we are still seeking additional sponsorships and funding to cover the costs of teaching resources and extracurricular events.
LAB is scheduled to run from Monday 17 – Friday 28 August 2020 and will see a cohort of young people aged 15-19 from across Mostar and the surrounding areas come together to access two weeks of interactive theory and experiment-based classes in Biology, Chemistry and Physics. The program will follow the highly successful, student-centred teaching model established by MSYP, with additional extra-curricular events and trips building participants’ confidence and wider skills (in critical thinking, leadership, team-building and community engagement). LAB will be delivered by a talented team of local volunteers with academic backgrounds across the sciences. This unique delivery model means that LAB will also act as a valuable work experience opportunity for local university students and recent graduates.
