What is MSYP?

The Mostar Summer Youth Program (MSYP) is a one-of-a-kind, free, English language education program that has run every summer since 2014. The MSYP curriculum aims to leave participants more confident in each of the following areas: speaking English, critical thinking, creative thinking, leadership, teamwork, multicultural understanding, engagement in your community.


Who can participate in MSYP?

MSYP is free and open to young people aged 14-19 from Mostar and the surrounding area. Whilst many staff members are fluent in both BCS and English, the program is taught in English, taking a language ‘immersion’ approach in order to help participants gain confidence in their use of English language. For this reason, participants must have a good working knowledge of English.



Taught courses this year will include the following subject areas: 

  • Film
  • History
  • Human rights
  • Literature
  • Philosophy
  • Politics
  • Religion


Extra-curricular activities

MSYP includes a diverse extra-curricular program designed with participant interests and learning needs in mind, which always includes a number of stimulating talks, workshops and other engaging activities led by organizations and professionals from a range of backgrounds. MSYP also includes a range of trips and social events.
