Access Program students from Niksic have participated in various volunteering activities during the ongoing year and showed eagerness, great enthusiasm, a strong wish to help those in need and contribute to their local community and its well-being. Through numerous community service activities, our Access family has learned how important it is to offer some help in making a more hopeful, stable and peaceful world. While giving and sharing with others, Access Program Niksic students learned about empathy and compassion for others, and most importantly, created challenging and fulfilling experiences which they will turn into long-lasting memories.
