practice, learn, step-up!





Build a constructive attitude through Practice, for a sustainable added-value in the Romanian educational system! Definition: Practice is a method of learning and of acquiring experience, with the purpose of improving or mastering a behaviour, as in the phrase “practice makes perfect“. GROW programs are build along with the Romanian Ministry of Education, Research, Youth and Sports  and offer quality practice for high school students through a professionally designed educational curriculum that complements the formal education system. “I want to learn more and more to see as beautiful what is necessary in things; then I shall be one of those who make things beautiful” – Nietzsche –Definition: Learning is acquiring new, or modifying existing, knowledge, behaviours, skills, values, or preferences and may involve synthesising different types of information.Human learning may occur as part of education, personal development, schooling, or training.GROW learning experiences are designed to strengthen the connection between participants and trainers, to deepen the impact curriculum, all of these based on unconventional education. ” It always seems impossible until it is done.” – Nelson Mandela –Step Up and be creative regarding your future, you will discover that knowing, by learning and practicing, gives you the chance to find the right path to the change you want to make.Step up for the future while you have the opportunity to mix internationalism, cultural sensitivity, creativity and team work with having fun and practicing some of the skills gained during the project!

World Wide Weekend is an entire day where GROW participants from all over the country are part of an international cultural fair.An “open space” for mixing internationalism, cultural sensitivity, creativity and team work with having fun and practicing the skills gained during the project. This is the space in which you can communicate, learn and live another culture.You will have a “taste” of an international experience while celebrating the differences, without leaving your town. Checkout the calendar and be present, along with your parents, best friends and don’t forget your neighbour. Remember our tombola but be sure that you’ll feel more than rewarded, anyway.
