Young Urban Achievers (YUA) is a collective of young people in Amsterdam which supports young people in setting up cultural entreprises all over the world. YUA works in regions where youngsters experience a lack of labor market perspective, with a main focus on urban surroundings.

Together with students in Sarajevo YUA has set up an arthouse cinema: Kriterion Sarajevo. The cinema is completely run by students; creating youth employment and adding an independent cultural stage to the city of Sarajevo. After the success in Sarajevo, YUA started projects in Monrovia (Liberia), Ramallah (Palestine), and has also organized multiple activities in Belgrade (Serbia) and Mitrovica (Kosovo).

Support YUA
Kriterion Sarajevo is hip and happening. So YUA expands! In Liberia and Ramallah, for example. Because there are so many places where there is a lack of (cultural) enterprises and students jobs.
