We expect that volunteer would teach his native language to local youngsters, organize workshops about youth culture differences between countries, sports activities, theater, multimedia etc. There are different needs for youngsters that comes to „B.u.M.s”, some of them come when they have free time, some of them only when they have any problem. Most active and busy days are weekends and holidays, when youngsters don't have to go to school. Most active visitors during holidays are students from high school and university. In youth center there are regular movie evenings, discussions, gymnastics and multimedia group meetings. Youth center has been used as place for events and as a place where other projects can be advertised. Most active youngsters that take part in YC activities has been to exchange programms, took a part in local or regional measures.
