Volunteers’ Centre of Vojvodina
and volunteering actions in Serbia
in long-term projects
Tara Lekić was born in Novi Sad, where she graduated in French language and literature. For two years, she has been a volunteer at the VCV, engaged in youth work and leading intercultural exchanges. She is also active in the youth center CK13, where she organizes film screenings as part of the Art Bioskop collective, and hosts a radio show about film. She is interested in theater and creative writing, and how to use them as methods for working with young people.
Ida Boka, one of VCV’s funding members, operates in the fields of journalism, youth work and community building. Born in Novi Sad, completed her Bachelor’s and Master’s studies in Community-based youth work, has been working as a journalist since 2011. After years of work at VCV as well as other organizations and collective in Novi Sad, in 2019 she moves to Donji Tavankut, near Subotica, where she works in the fields of journalism as well as youth education, with a focus on the field of migrations. She recently established her own organization in Subotica, dealing with the promotion of healthy lifestyles through yoga, movement, workshops, and other. She strongly believes that community building involves all existing actors in the process, regardless of their language, origin and personal opinions, and that it is possible to gather everyone around one table: the question is just how. She is one of the Board’s members (probably) for the third time.
