That’s it! Welcome to GROW​!


  • GROW is one of the experiences that can change anyone’s point of view. From funny and educational games to questions that makes us all wonder about our future, we have learnt a lot not only about ourselves, but also about the world around us and how can we influence it. Teamwork, leadership, communication, these are the things that we will always need and that we practiced at GROW. For me, GROW is the perfect example of how school should actually be like because at GROW, we are not taught something, we are involved into every activity that can help us grow.
    Doriana, GROW participant from Slobozia
  • Being a participant to GROW for two editions has taught me these two main things: to have more self confidence and to communicate to others. By communicating I include making new friends, learning teamwork and having fun with people that are like me, without knowing them for that long. GROW is unique, unlike any other project because it's a very friendly environment and it makes you feel comfortable. Even if you're shy (like I was in the beginning) you'll get over it without even realizing it, because the trainers won't force you to do anything you don't want, but at the same time they make sure that everyone is included. After GROW, I feel more confident, and more able to speak in public. It helped me get over my social anxiety. In one sentence: GROW is learning while having fun. I'm looking forward to be an ambassador the next edition!
    Denisa, GROW participant from Oradea
  • My GROW experience was anything but boring. It offered me the opportunity to challenge myself in order to become a more complex person, and also to meet a lot of smart and like-minded people, that I can now call my friends. GROW is also the embodiment of the balance between fun and hard work, and I encourage everyone to become a part of this ever growing community.
    Iulia, GROW participant from Brasov
  • The whole GROW experience was unforgettable from start to finish. Not only have I learnt more about others, but I have also managed to understand myself and improve skills in the fields of communication, time management, teamwork or choice matters. I gained the confidence of taking action when I have to and to speak my mind up more easily. Most of all, I understood how powerful the desire and will of making something happen are, thus giving me the motivation of always getting involved in such activities.
    GROW participant from Calarasi
  • GROW was really amazing. I had the occasion to learn things that will help me a lot in the future. When I think about the sessions, the people I met there and the trainers, I get tears in my eyes because they changed my life and my perception in a good way. I have a lot of nice memories and I'm very proud because now I'm a part of GROW family. I'm really thankful for every single person who made my experience to be the best thing that happened to me. Thank you for everything!  ”
    GROW participant from Alba-Iulia
  • The greatest challenge was to open up in front of everybody else, to communicate with them. I went through a lot of different feelings: fear, insecurity, but they soon turned into trust, happiness and pride for participating in the GROW project. I learned to save money, to invest in the things with the greatest value, how to think of everybody else and not just me, to collaborate. I think GROW is different because it puts you through different situations you have to handle and because it connects people. For me, it's the experience I would repeat endlessly.

    GROW participant from Pitesti
  • I'm SO GLAD I attended GROW because it helped me realise that we are all the same, no matter the culture, religion or whatever, and that, even when there are differences, we can achieve goals as great as changing young people's perception. For me GROW was such a nice experience: I met new friends, I improved my self-confidence and I really loved getting involved in the community through the challenges we created.
    GROW participant from Bucharest
  • I practiced and developed my teamwork skills, I learned how to be more tolerant and understanding with people's opinions and I went a step further by creating new friends and trying to overcome my fear of speaking my mind. I met a lot of genuinely kind, cool people, especially the trainers, and I hope to be a part of the GROW team again anytime soon.
