the dragon’s lair
BA in journalism / manager and coordinator of changes
Creative. Versatile. Lively. Energetic. Always open to new ideas and knowledge. I enjoy turning problems in to challenges. I promote creativity as a personal, organisational and social value. I turn individuals in to a creative group. A creative group which can then follow and achieve common goals. My door is always open for anyone with an idea and the will to implement it.

BA in history / associate expert
Mine is the second door on the left. An office full of colourfullness, mostly cheerful and warm colours. The desk is covered with letters and numbers. Here I sit on a grey chair wishing for a red chair. My most regular visitors are Vasco, Ujp, Word Excel and Google. They take turns dancing to the rhythms of the stimulating music in the background. The office is filled with the smell of contracts, decisions, payrolls, reports and calls for applications. The office echoes with many questions and even more answers. It’s never completely tidy because everything is never completely finished….

BA in philosophy / coordinator, youth work specialist
By education a philosopher. By experience a youth worker. I love traveling, exploring, learning new skills and expressing myself creatively. I love fairy tales. When I get the chance I like to write fairy tales, too. I love fantasy, fairy creatures and superheroes. I believe that everyone of us has their own special power. I want everyone, big or small, old or young to discover their own unique superpower. Superpowers that of course respect nature and other beings both human and non-human.

young dragons črnuče
BA in comparative literature / coordinator, youth work specialist
Panta rhei. The sweat from everyday tasks flows or the different energies needed for inner transformations flow. At the moment the transformation from a ‘city boy’ to a ‘mountain dweller’. I choose my life’s motto as I go. Ever since high school it has been “Only a loyal dog succeeds in life.”. During periods of self discovery it’s “Mehr licht”. Lately I have been enjoying the inventive ideas of, in my opinion, one of the greatest thinkers of the 20th century; “I think I am, therefore, I am. I think”. Both in my own life and professionally I try to follow my own path. I annoy both my self and my permanent fellow passengers with ‘eternal questions’, whims, black humour and new challenges. You are welcome to come and walk with me!

BA in social work / coordinator, youth work specialist
Positive. Proactive. Responsible. Curious. In both my professional life and everyday life. I like to work outside established frameworks and research the unknown. I’ve been active in the field of youth work for many years. Why do stick around? Because young people give me energy and working with them is a challenge. You can find me in the Young Dragons Zalog or on the lawn in front of it. I am also often on Resljeva Street. I am probably planning some kind of event, a camp or a summer school. Maybe I will be co-creating something with the field crew of Young Dragons, making arrangements for a co-production cooperation or co-organising the weekend or weekly program for the centre. Sometimes I will be simply enjoying the activities with our visitors. In short I’m never bored.

the street dragons
student of primary-level teaching
I have been actively cooperating with Young Dragons for over two years working as a student in the Young Dragons Bežigrad. I am a member of The Street Dragons which is a team that is part of Young Dragons and carries out fieldwork in different locations. My spare time is mostly dedicated to music. I am taking regular guitar lessons and participating in various bands and projects. I am also interested in the theatre. This year I have developed quite an interest in youth exchanges and traveling… I would like to continue with both of these activities. The reason for my excitement in working with the youth is not just the energy surrounding both the participants and the service providers but also the sincerity of the young people. I learn something from these young people everyday.
A student in the last year of my social work degree and an active field worker with a desire to get to know people and the environment around me. I spend my free time in nature with trainers on my feet with smiling people who are not afraid to try new things. I explore my curiosity and creativity at creative recycling workshops, learning new dance steps and doing sports. Even better for exploring my curiosity and creativity are youth projects where I can expand my knowledge and challenge myself.

I am part of the Street Dragons team because I look forward to working with young people. I enjoy listening to new music and hate being bored. My main means of transport is a bike. I’m a sociable human and I’m always active but at weekends I like to move to somewhere more remote.
