Forum Syd (Forum Syd Balkans Programme [FSBP]--Organizations Co-operating for Global Justice) is an umbrella organization for 200 member organizations in Sweden. It has worked in the Balkans for more than a decade. FSBP believes that community based youth work is a valuable tool for building and sustaining peaceful communities and its mission is to develop voluntary, community youth work services that can support the personal development of young people in areas affected by the conflict in the Balkans. In 2005, Forum Syd took over the PRONI programme in the Balkans and named it FSBP, adopting the previous objectives, but harmonizing fundamental issues in the programme with exit policies. This article describes the changes and the adaptations made to the PRONI/FSBP educational model over the years. The PRONI/FSBP project trains young persons in skills and abilities that enable them to engage in community-based activities. (Contains 3 figures and 3 notes.)
