How is learning activated in GROW?

A unique learning model, Practice, Learn, Step Up is the foundation of all GROW workshops and has proven its efficiency in the last 5 years. It combines active learning with reflexion and individual exercises with teamwork to create authentic teenagers with a stronger character and solid values.

The GROW project consists of 4 modules that complement high school education and transform teens into responsible and decisive adults.

Each module has over 30 hours of workshops delivered in English by trained internationals. We select motivated internationals, who are willing to pay for their flight to teach and share their experiences with Romanian youth. Trainers undergo an intense 5-day conference and deliver the trainings by the book. The international perspective is an unique aspect of GROW.

 

Module 1 – GRIT*

It’s scientifically proven (*Researcher: A. Duckworth) that grit is the main ingredient of success.

The workshops address self-awareness, build self-confidence, increase emotional intelligence and improve teamwork skills.

Recommended for 9th graders or those who have just
found out about GROW.

*passion + perseverance

 

Module 3 – Owners*

Success is about decisiveness, not about owning stuff.
This module teaches students about critical, creative and systemic
thinking skills, business skills and career orientation.


Recommended for 11th graders.

*physical and mental jewels

 

Module 2 – Runners*

Runners train their  muscles and mental strength to keep going
when others give up.

The module is about learning how to learn, outdoors fun sports, time management, healthy habits and muscle memory. It’s also about how to make things happen and about understanding what it really means  to be competitive.

Recommended for 10th graders.
