Through Outdoor Experiential Learning to The Best of You(th) (Slovensko, 29. 6. - 9. 7. 2018)

From 29th June to 9th July 2018 me and my friend from scout took part in a training course Through Outdoor Experiential Learning to the Best of You(th). This project focused on working with young people in nature and it took place in Slovakia. Every day we were learning how to work with young people and how to organize outdoor activities for them. We experienced many various activities and enjoyed many coffee breaks, during which we could taste food from the countries involved in the project (Poland, Slovakia, Spain, Lithuania, Croatia, Latvia and Estonia). At the end of the project we divided into several international groups and we went hiking for three days in Tatras. On the way we fulfilled various challenges (walking blind for a moment or with bare feet and more). I liked this part of the project the most. One aim of the project was to create an activity for young people, which we will later on implement in our countries.

You(th) Play - 21. 8. - 2. 9. 2018, Czech Republic

This year, we decided to organize one more project at our beautiful campsite till the end of summer while it's still sunny and warm. The youth exchange "You(th) Play" will bring together young people from the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Poland and for 11 days they will together discover the magic of board games as not only a source of entertainment, but also new knowledge and a great opportunity to bring up discussions about up-to-date topics. To put our new findings into practice, at the end of the project, we will create our own games that will have educational aims. Besides that, we will make a trip to some of the Czech towns and we will enjoy the life in the middle of the countryside.

Summer Camp Adventure (Slavňovice, 1. - 14. 7. 2018)

This year's summer camp was very successful. We had quite a high number of children and thanks to an Erasmus+ project "Summer Camp Adventure", we could also welcome foreign leaders - this year from Poland, Slovakia, Spain and Turkey. During the 14 days, the children were travelling around the world, visiting various countries, getting to know new cultures and also a little bit of political systems. The children will for sure never forget the visit to North Corea. Besides that, we also took part in a Brazilian carnival, fought with the Russian mafia and learned to create origami in China. In the second week, we also visited the town of Český Krumlov - we visited the gardens next to the chateaux and had lunch right at the castle. Because a professional filmmaker joined us this year, we are happy to have also our first summer camp video.

You can check out photos from the camp here and the video here.

Digital Youth - October 2018, Turkey

Just like in 2017, also this October we will go to sunny Turkey with the project Digital Youth. It is a training course for youth workers. The participants will get to know other cultures and their habits and at the same time they will learn to work with a camera, shoot and cut videos. In the second half of the project, we will connect these two spheres and the participants will shoot their own short movies with intercultural topics, which will later on be shown at international film festivals. Apart from that, they will also learn about youth work in different countries, gain intercultural contacts and find out how their organization can also take part in Erasmus+ programme.

You can see movies we created last year here.

EMPathY: Emotional Management - The Path for Youth: 19. - 26. 9. 2018, Rumunsko

This is a training course for youth workers, that will take place in Romania in September 2018. The topic is "emotional management". Our objective with the project as a whole is to become experienced both on working with emotional management in all the fields we work regularly and to do our young teenager related youth work in the future keeping mind emotional management practices when we deal with the social oppression and abuses that leads to unbalanced emotional lives at a young age. The participants will learn concrete methods of teaching young people how to work with their emotions and lead a balanced life.

Infopack with more information will appear here soon.

The Long Way to Europe (Krakow, 11. - 14. 5. 2018)

The second weekend in May, representatives of our organization took part in an international training under the Erasmus+ project "The Long Way to Europe". This time the meeting took place in Krakow, because this place is in many ways connected to antisemitism and holocaust. 28 participants from eight countries got the opportunity to visit Schindler's factory (famous thanks to the Spielberg's movie Schindler's List) and also the most famous concentration camp Auschwitz. The training ended by organizing a street debate in the streets of Krakow, which motivated the participants to be more active in the society when they come home.

Street debate (Sedlčany, 12. 5. 2018)

On the 12th of May, we organized our first "street debate" as a part of an Erasmus+ project "The Long Way to Europe", which motivates young people to be more interested in what is happening in their countries and to take an active part in the society. The topic of this first debate was "difference" and our aim was to create a debate about this topic amongst random people on the street who would normally never start talking to each other. We - me (Mája), Eva Pešková, Míra Krampera and Petr Čáp - met in the morning on the square in Sedlčany, brought a big board and on it, we hung the question "Have you ever felt "different"? When?" Then we asked random people on the square and wrote their answers on the board - this way we created a kind of a collage of various experiences with "being different", which the passers-by could read and think about. The whole time there was a nice and friendly atmosphere, we enjoyed the time together and gained experiences, which we are going to use in the next debates we organize.
