Kruševac:Nenad Lazarević is an (un)ordinary secondary school student from Kruševac. He is spending his free time in the Career Corner in Kruševac where he is attending the career orientation, counselling and guidance workshops for young people. The workshops are organised by Kruševac Youth Council, one of our programme’s local partners.
Workshops are designed so as to help young people choose the right career. Nenad first started to attend them last year and since then he has been a regular participant at them. He frequently shares his experience from the workshops with his friends – eighth grade students from Kruševac and the entire Ras County, at the events such as the local education and career orientation fair.
