The project “Pokreni se!” started its implementation in 2020 by the Institute of Development and Innovation.
The high rate of unemployment among the young presents one of the main challenges of the town of Čačak. As the solution, the Institute of Development and Innovation has recognized that it is important to directly participate in developing economic-political measures through organizing retraining workshops for the young individuals in Čačak in one of the high – technological sectors such as graphic design and animation.
The retraining took place over 9 months and was organized by Science – technological park in Čačak and its society, the StartUP center. The project consisted of training in using Adobe Illustrator, a workshop on how to open your business, learning design, mentorship after the training, and connecting the trainees with the companies.
After the project 1/3 of the participants found employment and started their business in the field of graphic design.
The project is financed by the Westminster Foundation for Democracy, the town of Čačak, Science-technological Park in Čačak, and The School of Technological Studies of Čačak.
