Program Director of Youth Empowerment
Frosina Kiprijanovska

Frosina Kiprijanovska graduated from the Faculty of Philology but her work in many CSO motivated her in having not only informal but also formal education that she could use during her work with children and youth. She  is currently pursuing her second Bachelor Degree at the Faculty of Pedagogy. She joined Generations for Peace, a global non profit peace-building organisation, as a volunteer in 2012. The programmes she helps run and facilitate in Tetovo, Skopje and the surrounding regions target children and youth, using Sport and Art to engage with them and build bonds that did not exist prior to the introduction of the activities.

Frosina sees herself as an eternal student, and carries this mentality with her into her programmes. Over her time with GFP, she has been a part of  Geneva Peace Week 2018 as panelist sharing her story and has been part of numerous  community initiatives, taking feedback from each and using it to enhance activities and programming to impact youth going forward. She always tells others that they should start their volunteering journey with something that looks both challenging and great – something they would still like to try even though they might fail, because through failure or challenges we learn. The participants of the programmes she runs have benefited immensely from this outlook.

Working as project manager in Association for protection as education of children and young Roma “Progress” and as a GFP volunteer she is dedicated to contribute to educating children and young people by being more than a youth leader, friend, role model, or facilitator. Even as she pursues this passion, she is excited to continue her work within “IMPETUS” as Program Director for Youth Empowerment and inspired to share her knowledge and build strong network of young leaders willing to create a change in the community.
