Summer School, Step towards another world

“I learned to treasure myself as a person, to appreciate my qualities”, “There were many practical activities, team work, where I learned how to make right decisions for myself and how to get involved actively”, “Most of all, I liked the fact that we could speak freely, that we were listened. We were told “Nothing is wrong”. The way the activities were organized helped me shape a better idea of what I should do after finishing high school”, “I discovered, I learned that we are the most important and, in order to pass over failures successfully, we must be ambitious and have self-confidence”, “Thank you for the opportunity to learn new things, for the beautiful experience, for the new and special people I met. We learned one from the other new and good things for the future” – these are several impressions gathered from the young people who participated to the first series of courses of the Intercultural Summer School “Education for your future”.
