From digital learner to leader: Anna’s impact with YMCA and HP

Date: 31 March 2024

A year ago, journalist Anna embarked on a transformative journey by enrolling in HP digital courses at the YMCA Digital Community Hub. Focusing on social media marketing and audience engagement, these HP LIFE courses provided Anna with advanced skills and a passion for the YMCA’s mission of community empowerment and digital inclusivity.

Anna and her local media company formed a partnership with YMCA Serbia. This collaboration led to the successful launch in 2023 of Mobile Journalism (MOJO) courses for young individuals. Her contributions played a key role in enhancing YMCA Serbia’s efforts to engage and educate young people.

Expanding horizons in 2024

Anna recently joined YMCA Serbia, aiming to amplify outreach further. The team is now gearing up to introduce a mobile digital community hub that will extend across northern Serbia. This project seeks to champion digital equity and empowerment by offering creative educational solutions to regions often neglected by traditional learning systems.

Said Anna, “Cultivating change isn’t just about seizing opportunities; it’s about creating them. Through our collaboration with YMCA and HP, we’re not just telling stories; we’re empowering communities to script their own narratives of success.”
