Ambassador Reinke joined representatives from various Montenegrin institutions and NGOs, in addition to school principals for the launch of the Montenegro Civic Education Project on April 7, 2022.
The Embassy, in partnership with the project implementer, PHI International, is supporting this new and innovative program which seeks to empower youth and build stronger, more resilient communities. The development of a civic education curriculum is a key component of this project, which will give young people the opportunity to learn first-hand about the rule of law from local police officers and teachers, while also bringing youth, police, and other members of the community together to carry-out projects that will positively impact their local communities.
The Embassy is excited to launch the program in various communities in the northern municipalities of Plav, Andrijevica, Berane, Gusinje & Rožaje. Together, we will encourage youth to become increasingly civically active and to work to support inclusive, tolerant, and vibrant local communities in which they play a crucial role.
