Description

Youth Work Actions (Serbo-Croat: Omladinske Radne Akcije, often abbreviated to ORA) were organized voluntary labor activities of young people in Yugoslavia.

The actions were used to build public infrastructure such as roads, railways, and public buildings, as well as industrial infrastructure. The youth work actions were organized on local, republic and federal levels by the Young Communist League of Yugoslavia, and participants were organized into youth work brigades, generally named after their town or a local national hero.

Initial actions were organized during the Second World War in territories liberated by the partisans. After the war, actions were numerous and massive and the youth brigades made significant contributions to the rebuilding of their country, which was badly ravaged by war. In addition to cheap labor for the state, youth work actions provided a form of free holiday for teenagers.

As the country was rebuilt and its economy stabilized, youth work actions went out of fashion. However, they were revived in the late 1970s, in an effort to organize youth in political and cultural activities, as the work actions proved to play a large role in the socialization of those involved.

    Alex and Gaga have been great. They sold me a nice typewriter that unfortunately was mishandled during shipping. It was in no way the shop owner's fault. I will continue to purchase typewriters from these fine people. What I appreciate most is Alex and Gaga's swift handling of my order. Again, shipping, not the seller damaged my parcel. I love these people and their shop.

    Sincerely,
