The BOLD (Balkanski omladinski lideri, Young Balkan Leaders in English) network is a project of PDS that seeks to develop the leadership capacity of young Serbians by empowering them to implement projects for positive change in their communities in two thematic areas: civic engagement and economic development. Anyone age 18-35 in Serbia can join the BOLD network where members have access to three main types of competitive opportunities:

  • 1. BOLD Academic Fellowships: Two in-depth leadership training experiences in the United States for 4-6 weeks, one on each BOLD theme.
  • 2. BOLD Workshops: Four workshops, one week to 10 days long, on leadership and project management, two each on one of the BOLD themes.
  • 3. BOLD Small Grant Competition: An annual competition, open to all BOLD members, for funds up to $15,000 to implement projects in the areas of the BOLD themes over the course of a year.
