- YCC – Youth Communication Centre was founded in 1997 as a local non-governmental organisation. It provides support for young people who are in difficulties following the war in Bosnia & Herzegovina. Their aims are to promote the ideas of peace and reconciliation and to encourage community development through non-violent action.
- YCL – Youth Centre in Livno is a civic association and non-governmental organization who aim to represent young people and their interests in the development of civil society, protection of environment, promotion of human rights, multiculturalism, tolerance, sustainable development and voluntarism.These organisations are members of the South-East European Youth Network. SEEYN (www.seeyn.org) was born in 2000 and consists of 11 very different organisations who share a common belief in voluntarism, exchanges and co-operation between borders. Through their work, SEEYN hope to challenge the stereotypes that many people still hold of the region and believe that international volunteer projects are a good way in which to do this.
