INFO   :::  Projects > Reach out Sandzak II



Using guided interactions between youth and law enforcement officers as a basis for cooperation, participants in this project will use social media and community outreach events to promote messages that counter violent extremist ideologies. In a region where political conflict and social tension contribute to a persistent lack of economic development and devastating youth unemployment, post seeks to extend our original CVE effort with a 24-month follow-on program. Incorporating best-practices learned last year, local youths will continue a social media outreach effort that dispels myths about the role of law enforcement in the community and projects a positive image of Islam and youth culture. Working side-by-side with police officers in a collaborative environment, young people from across Sandzak will plan and produce musical concerts, sports competitions, and other activities to promote anti-extremist themes such as education, tolerance, inclusion, and non-violence. The project is realized with the assistance of the US Embassy in Belgrade.
