What is BOLD?

Young BiH Leaders

BOLD is a network of young leaders, age 18-35, who want to make a difference in Bosnia and Herzegovina in the areas of civic engagement and economic development.  BOLD leaders implement projects in their communities and support each other in their efforts to make positive change. The U.S. Embassy supports BOLD leaders by offering U.S. educational and cultural exchanges, workshops and training in BiH, seed funding for projects, and engagement and connection with like-minded people.
