I.T. a Male Discipline? Girls Bet It Is Not!

Women in technology? – some might ask. Strong and courageous young women, we would add. For some a challenge while for others a major risk. Computer science has always been considered to be a man’s profession. However, reality has started to show a different side. Even though many of women still believe that their gender is holding them back from doing what they love, the girls that participated at Mladiinfo’s project – myouth do not agree!

We met the smiling and charming Mandy and Yi Fang at our mYouth project in Skopje, Macedonia focused on mobile app development and m-Learning. The two were some of the few female participants in the project. Mandy is pursuing her Master... Read More »

Imagine a summer language school in a small, but sunny country with a rich, cultural and food variety offer. The young adventurist Gabor Parti didn’t have to imagine it, because this was exactly his experience during his stay in Republic of Macedonia.This summer, Andras, Gabor, Marcell and 5 other young Hungarians decided to spend a short adventure in Macedonia. Andras and Gabor have already been in Macedonia before, so they convinced their friends that they must visit ‘this country with nice people, beautiful landscape and delicious food’, as Andras says.

Gabor visited Macedonia many times, but before his first visit he had no clue about the country at all, he only knew the flag, all because of his childhood enthusiasm for... Read More »

The young Ognen Janeski wishes the day had more than 24 hours. “It is hard in one day to combine your work-related tasks and to go to help those who are most in need, but I am giving my best”, he explains, obviously tired from the long day. He is coughing from the cold but is full with optimism and hope while making plans for the delivery of donations in the upcoming days.  The young TV personality already has an intensive lifestyle between his many projects as well as preparations of his TV programmes. Yet these days, his focus is on the families... Read More »

Youth Has Voice Too?

Posted on August 12th, 2016 in Articles, Youth ActivismRespond to this post »

Difficult, boring, opaque, unimportant – the descriptors of EU affairs world are not flattering. In the light of the widely talked about rise of the far right, increasing nationalism, hostility towards immigrants and the individual closing down of borders, the public opinion on the European project has seemed to lose popularity over the course of the past years. With youth sharply disconnected from the original ideas that supported in the very beginning the creation of a European project, the current political classes tap into frustrations gathered over the past last decades.

The young people of Europe as we know it have been raised in a war-less world and accustomed to a mostly open borders circulation within the... Read More »

Sqore – Your Source for Opportunities!

Posted on August 9th, 2016 in ArticlesRespond to this post »

What started 6 years ago as a popular listing site called Student Competitions (www.studentcompetitions.com) has evolved into Sqore. A service that was built to take you places through competitions. Sqore challenges students and young professionals around the world to demonstrate their skills and win scholarships, travel grants, and more.

Because Sqore believes that the best talent may not have the same financial outlook as others, but they deserve a chance to prove how good they really are. To do this, Sqore partners with Universities, High Schools, Business Schools, Companies, and more around the world to... Read More »

EVS Means One Common Label « GOOD FRIENDS»

Posted on July 29th, 2016 in Articles, My StoryRespond to this post »

It’s already been six months since I moved from a city of 3 million to a town of 3 thousand people in the middle of nowhere. I changed my active busy life that I had in Kyiv, Ukraine, to a slow motion way of living in Góis, Portugal. This is all because of my European Voluntary Service (EVS) placement in an organization with a name nobody-can-pronounce – RAIZVANGUARDA – Associação Cultural.

I live in an old house together with another volunteer Claire from London, a tiny snail in the bathroom and a grey mouse under my bed. We are working in an Old Primary School in Bordeiro on top of a hill. By “we” I mean Claire and I.

Embracing Youth Volunteerism in Albania

Posted on July 26th, 2016 in Articles, Youth ActivismRespond to this post »

Gandhi once said: “Be the change that you wish to see in the world”. As a matter of fact, we, the young people, can actually make an impact. In fact, there are so many of us in this world that we have the potential and energy to bring positive change. It all relies on our willingness to act and to be passionate about good deeds. Volunteerism is one civic virtue that has not been very much present in our Balkan societies.

For a moment, I would like you to think: When was the last time that you volunteered? What did you do and how did you feel? If good feelings and memories cross your mind, than this... Read More »
