Odred izviđača "Stari Grad" Mostar
The Association's primary goal is to raise our members, children, into responsible citizens of our city. We are providing them with adequate activities, interactive socializing workshops, education and sports activities in order to raise their tolerance, and protect them from all the negative impacts (addictions, drugs, criminals, etc.). We must point out that in the last 20 years, several thousand scouts have been involved in our activities and we are proud of it.
It is very important to point out that all members of our Association are volunteers and that the Association itself is not getting any founds from Government, nor City nor State. We are financing our activities based on support of our members, sponsors and friends of Association. Each Year we are organizing many events that are popularizing scouts' movement, such as: summer camping, competitions, education workshops etc.
Background - Scout Group "Stari Grad"
Scout Group "Stari grad" (Stari Grad) was established in 1964 under the original name "Gojko Vuković", at the initiative of the local community, on November 25th 1964 in Mostar. For thirty years, in the period from inception to the war, Group did not interrupt their work and activities, and were known for their exemplary team, which took a prominent place in Scout Association of Mostar as well as in Scout Association of former Yugoslavia. This is witnessed by numerous awards, such as the highest Group honors that individuals can get. Group was five times voted as "partisan group" and is also the holder of "silver maple leaf", one of the major awards in the scouting organization of former Yugoslavia.
In its history, Group received numerous community awards, which is an indication of how much impact and importance we had in social community. Some of them are: "Golden Plaque Republican Conference Bosnia and Herzegovina", "The February plaque City of Mostar," "Silver Tape SSOBiH" in 1980.
The renewal after the war was held on March 14th in 1997. The most important recognition that we can point out in the recent history of our Group is „Gold Maple Leaf“, the greatest recognition of the Scout Association of Bosnia and Herzegovina, which we received in 1999.
