Back to business!

Lison Comments are off
And yes, we are still here. In case you were wondering what took us so long to be back, well, let me explain.  So in January, many things happened. First, we spent hours on paperwork. Because yes, not only the schools ask for reports, but also the European Union. As our project is financed by the European Commission (sort of), we have to give feedback and proof that we are not on holidays. Therefore we locked ourselves between four walls

Chasing Dracula …

Laura Comments are off
We had the possibility to travel trough Romania for a whole week, last week we took the chance and started our trip in the early Saturday morning. As it was a surprise for most of us, because only Lison and Sara planned the trip, we were excited about where we were going and what we could expect. After some hours in the train we arrived at 11am at our first stop: Brasov. On our way to the accomondation we were

Our purpose

Sven Comments are off
Some of you might be wondering why exactly we are conducting our workshops in Constanta. We ourselves contempate this as well at times, as our purpose might not appear to be so self-evident.The reason why we were called to this city was to help raise the level of engagement and responsiveness of the youth of Constanta on the topic of extracurricular activities. In this way we can help to improve the connection between other members of the community in this

Report writing

Sven Comments are off
On the first week of January, as all Romanian students are still celebrating holidays, we are now at work in the University of Constanta. Filled with renewed energy thanks to our holiday breaks we are working on the reports of our workshops. Of course we are evaluation for ourselves what we could improve in the future, despite all the positive responses and inquiries from all over Constanta. In addition, we are also hoping that our reports can add something to

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Lison Comments are off
First of all, happy new year 2020! May this year be better than the previous ones and full of love and health for you and your beloved ones. After a Christmas break in our respective countries (except for Guillaume who stayed in Constanta), we are back to continue and, sadly, finish the project within 2 months. We charged the batteries in order to be more productive and inspired to give more entertaining contents to the students. We’ll be working on

Despre mindfulness, din Slovacia

Nicoleta Comments are off
“În seara zilei de 15 Noiembrie, 30 de lucrători de tineret s-au întâlnit la Hotel Phoenix, Slovacia, pentru a parcurge un jurnal al schimbării. Folosind metode non-formale precum “Nume+semn” și “Human bingo”, au început prin a se cunoaște și a vorbi despre ei. Bineînțeles, nu a lipsit partea cu așteptări, contribuții și temeri, intitulată sugestiv “Desires, Resources, Challenges”. Au învățat apoi despre cele 3 zone – zona de confort, zona de challenge și zona de panică – urmând ca în

It’s all about sharing

Lison Comments are off
Two months and a half we are in Constanta and we’ve been asked many times if we noticed differences between the schools and the students here. Spoiler alert: yes, of course. We’ve been to more than five schools already and every time it was different. Classes from a same school can be completely different as two classes from different schools can be the same. But that isn’t really surprising. It depends on the students themselves. Indeed, who never said they

The new workshop story

Lison Comments are off
October is over, so as the first workshop over social media. This week, we started a new activity we had some trouble to come up with to be honest. After the success of the first workshop, we wanted to do as good as we did on October but ideas didn’t show up easily. We spent hours and hours (during lunch, under the shower, while we were doing groceries, you know, every time and everywhere) thinking about what we could do.

Exploring beyond Constanta

Sven Comments are off
Our volunteering journey continues… This week we learnt that our reputation had expanded outside of Constanta on Wednesday, when we went to a high school out of the city for the first time, in the neighboring town of Eforie Sud. The location of this school allowed for more outside playgrounds and such and as the school was quite well maintained from the inside as well, it expanded our perspective on Romanian schools, for up to that point we had only

A regular volunteering week

Lison Comments are off
In case one may wonder… here is a sample of a volunteering week.  This is actually our second volunteering week. We started the week brainstorming about the activity for the Telecom highschool. It was our first workshop and it took us 3 hours (no joke) to come up with an entire activity. We were a bit nervous to meet our first group but it went pretty well. Day after day, we tried to improve our speeches, our presentation. We kept talking
