Welcome to the New Leaders for Stability and Trust (NLST) website! Our journey began in 1996 as a group of passionate and idealistic 18-year-olds called Creative Youth of Novi Sad. Back then, our primary focus was on fostering democratic participation and nurturing the next generation of leaders.

One of our notable endeavours was the Stability and Trust project, which spanned from 2002 to 2012. During this period, we prioritized the education of young leaders, emphasizing the significance of Serbia’s integration into the Euro-Atlantic community.

As time went on and we gained invaluable experiences, we adapted to the changing landscape and evolved our mission. Today, we are dedicated to addressing the challenges faced by civil society by actively promoting civic engagement and activism.

Through our seminars and training programs, we equip individuals and organizations with the necessary tools to effectively build resilience to and counter malign influences on Serbia’s path to Euro-Atlantic integration and the adoption of European values.

With a track record of 98 successful projects, our initiatives have received support from various esteemed entities, including:

  • The Council of Europe’s Department of Political Affairs
  • The Central European Initiative
  • The German Marshall Fund of the United States
  • Royal Norwegian Embassy Ministry of Foreign Affairs
  • The British Embassy
  • The Balkan Trust for Democracy
  • Fund for an Open Society
  • The World Bank
  • European Youth Foundation

At NLST, we are committed to making a positive impact and shaping a brighter future for our society. Join us in our journey towards stability, trust, and a stronger community.
