The BOLD Event is a leadership development workshop integrating the fundamentals of Emotional Intelligence, Entrepreneurship and Community Development designed to activate a generation of emerging leaders throughout Serbia.
Accepted fellows participated in an immersive 4-day training in Belgrade, Serbia. Through interactive workshops led by experienced facilitators, fellows worked on development of their ideas in two directions: civic engagement or business venture and pitched ideas to each other. Based on their voting, 5 best ideas were chosen and composed 5 teams of all participated fellows.
On the 5th day, 5 teams participated in the launching event of BOLD initiative organized by the US Embassy in Serbia, where they competed for the awards with a total budget of 15000 USD. After competition, teams will receive mentoring support from Young Ambassadors in order to develop further and implement their ideas.
