Youth Work / Dumánci

Youth work

Our non-profit organization works with young people since its very beginning in 2008 - long before it got its name and was officially created. The common features of the first events were activities in nature, a lot of outside and board games, singing with guitars, but also preparing food for everybody and cleaning the cottage. The goal was to lead children to realize that they can have fun without computers and alcohol – and even while working.

Since 2008 up to the present day our organization works with children in the form of weekend activities. They are mostly events at a cottage, but we have also organized a number of trips by train.

To keep improving our youth work, some of our members participate in international training courses within the Erasmus+ programme. In 2015 we managed to organize such a course in the Czech Republic focusing on the latest trends in the area of non-formal learning. In 2016 we held a similar one focusing on intercultural learning and we also took part in a youth exchange in High Tatras.

For May 2017 we are planning a youth exchange in Prague focusing on audiovisual technologies and the way to use them. The participants will learn how to make and cut videos and they will make their own short movie. We are also preparing projects for summer, but we need to wait if the Czech NA approves them.


Our current projects


Summer camp adventure - 30th June - 14th July 2018, Czech Republic

This project will be very similar to the one that we carried out in July 2017, this way we will have already experience with organizing it and make it even better this time. It will take place at our campsite at the same time as a summer camp for children. This way, the participants will have a unique opportunity to experience the life of a youth worker by preparing games and activities for children and taking care of them. The main aim of our project is to awaken enthusiasm in the young people and show them how magical and rewarding working with children is, teach them different kinds of games and activities they can use any time and also give them the opportunity to experience life at a place in the middle of the countryside where there is forest on one side and river on the other. You can look forward to meeting new friends from the Czech Republic, Germany, Spain, Finland and Slovakia.

Netiquette: Empowering Digital Youth - 19th - 26th August 2018, Estonia

As we have etiquette rules for every situation as correct social behaviour, we also need to follow those rules online. Therefore there are netiquette rules and it is defined as a set of rules for acceptable online behaviour. Young people are staying “online” 24/7 and therefore it is important for them to know the netiquette rules. Furthermore, netiquette can actually give tools for empowering youth. With this seminar, we aim​ ​to​ ​provide​ ​youth​ ​workers​ ​from​ ​different​ ​European​ ​countries​ ​with tools​ ​t​o​ ​educate​ ​young​ ​people​ ​with​ ​netiquette​ ​rules. The participants will develop skills and tools to promote healthy relationship with digital technology, learn about the No-Hate-Speech campaigne and much more.
