What is GROW?
GROW is an educational project designed for high school students who want to be their own mighty heroes and add value to their free time. For those eager to live their lives with authenticity and courage, to explore their potential, and create a confident self. It’s for those who wish to make new friends and dive into a multicultural experience.
For all the gritty teenagers out there, GROW offers the proper tools to learn while having fun.
What makes GROW a unique educational program?
Practice, Learn, Step Up
The core of GROW is Practice, Learn, Step Up; an efficient educational model in which the participants learn through experiences, team activities, games, and then apply the acquired skills in some creative projects, with a positive impact in the local communities.
The workshops are delivered in English by international trainers, coached by the Scoala de Valori trainer’s team and other professionals. The participants can enjoy the savor of multiculturalism and explore new cultures in their own hometowns.
Up to date topics
The GROW topics are customized according to the high school student’s needs and interests. Based on a solid training expertise and teenager psychology, the program offers to the teens the ideal context to get ready for LIFE, both professionally and personally.
GROW accompanies the teenagers throughout the high school period by complementing the formal education system with non-formal workshops and other cool activities. A teenager can participate at GROW from 9th to 12th grade and each year the student will learn different things and acquire new skills.
The FUN Factor
Thanks to the open and friendly atmosphere, the teens feel encouraged to express themselves and get involved 100% into the activities. The entertaining energizers, exercises, events, and games engage the participants in a natural learning process without perceiving it as boring burden.
GROW is a national project that takes place in more than 20 cities from Romania, so teenagers from all over the country can participate without having to move. The schedule is flexible so the teenagers can choose the program that suits them.
