The Center for Education and Development's (CED) members are the main driver of the organization's many activities taking place in the region and the state in general. Highly competent experts, from various fields, compose our team and their capacities can meet the needs of all our beneficiaries, while simultaneously taking global and regional changes and trends into context.
From the beginning CED has had a clear institutional mission and vision of action in society and promotion of positive social change, a vision of young people with enhanced capacities, knowledge, skills and able contribute to their future. CED's staff are its most influential and crucial aspect of its successful projects. Qualified members who are motivated to work with young people ease our burden of project implementation. All of CED's members are at their core, people who want to contribute to change. They have all participated in CED-organized trainings and directly contribute to create projects that both promote their personal values and the organization's values.
Now let's meet the members.

I am Yllza Eshtrefi from Pershefce/Tetovo. Now I’m studying in high school called “Kiril Pejcinoviq”-Tetovo. I’m part of CED since August 2017. First, I participated on summer camp in Children’s Village Pestalozzi, in Trogen/Switzerland. There we learned lot of things about everything. 6 workshops: Learning Democracy, Migrations, Conflicts, Child Rights, and Anti-Discrimination. Such an amazing experience.
Then I helped on some projects in CED, like Beans Day etc..
Also I was part of training for career counseling, where we learned how to find a job, how to write a CV, to meet new people etc.
