Project report:


Welcome to Poland! Welcome to the world full of happy people, fun, friendship and honesty. It was my pleasure to travel to Pland (Darnawa) with one more Czech girl on the 15.5.2022 We were really excited about the project “Wellbeing in Youthwork” that ended on the 1st August. There were few people from each country: Poland, Czech Republic, Greece, Bulgaria, Italy, Spain, Sweden

Thanks to the perfect preparation and organization of our leaders –Monika and Ewe, Mara was able to create a wonderful team without any single mistake! During a lot of activities we got to know each other better and better and thanks to many group works, we were able to cooperate quite easily by many greeting excercises. We were dealing for example with creating a support network of youth workers, discuss difficulties faced in the profession and opportunities to overcome them, explore and learn methods and tools to oversee overall wellbeing in youth work, at emotional, physical, mental and emotional level, To develop strategies for self-awareness, self-management, self-regulation, empathy, social skills and intrinsic motivation. Presentation of our results allowed us to practice English and move our level a little bit higher!

moreover, we had a lot of oppurtinities to have talk to other participants and make a bike trip with them, one night we even had a closing private party for us, we really enjoyed our time together!

I would say, we enjoyed and learn something new in this project. overall I would say we enjoyed as a group, I think nobody from our froup would say he/she doesn’t enjoyed. This project was not only about non-formal learning, we made new friendships and I think thouse friendship are also very inportant for our future career/life. Daily activities schedule was perfect becouse we had many activities and also free time to visit a lake,shop, take a walk to a forest, to play walleyball,…Now, when we are back home we can try to realize our ideas and be happy if any of them will come true. We can start with creating a lot of beautiful things or we can use education as the most powerful weapon to change the world.
