Project report: 

Training course called Give it a Go took place in the lovely town Puente Genil. It is located in the South of  Spain, about an hour-long car ride from Malaga. The project was organized by Asociación Europa  2000 and hosted 24 participants from 12 different countries (Romania, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Portugal,  Turkey, France, Poland, Greece, Croatia, Serbia, Estonia and Czech Republic)! 

The goal of the project was to increase the level of knowledge of youth workers. Among the participants was more than just volunteers, there were teachers, coaches and social workers dealing with the  discussed problems every day in their work life. At the end we separated into groups and every group  created (fictional) non-profit organization as a result of the week full of workshops. 

We were led by amazing coaches Javier, Juan and Rafaela. They created very safe environment for us  to discus international problems and give personal opinions or experiences. Rafaela’s workshops gave us a possibility to look at thins in new perspective. Juan was making sure everybody was  energized and had fungood time. And Javier kept us save and well. 

We were accommodated in very nice hostel almost in the town centre. Room were 2-4 people with  bathroom (or even two bathrooms!). The hostel had also common room were most of the activities  happened. The chill time we spend on huge rooftop balcony bathing in the sun. 

The first day an interdiction took place of course. We learned basic informations about each other  throw games and started our first workshop. The second day we took a trip to near by city Cordoba,  where we visited Region Youth Institute. After workshop there we spent the rest od the day  exploring the city and easter festival that was happening at that time. Following days we spend in our  Puente Genil hostel busy witch workshops. Every night we went (led by Juan) to city town to enjoy its  culture.  

The project gave us a lot. We learned about different views and opinions on many current  multicultural problems. Gain a little bit of know-how in learning and explaining thoughts through  games and made new contact with amazing people.
