14, 15, 16… We don’t number the fallen leaves, we number the editions of GROW 🙂

This winter we are preparing the 17th edition of the project, which is an occasion that inspired us to bring a lot of new things for you. Let’s take them in order. 

The first good news: GROW is extending in new cities

Besides Arad, Brașov, Bucharest, Cluj-Napoca, Craiova, Iași, Oradea, Pitești, Suceava, Târgu-Mureș and Timișoara, teens from Alba-Iulia, Bacău, Călărași, Sighișoara and Toplița will also have the chance to develop themselves with GROW. In these cities we come with a shorter format of the GROW program where the 10 sessions will take place in 4 weekends, yet keeping the essence of the project, the dose of non-formal and multiculturalism.

All the sessions will be held between 25th January and 28th of February 2017.


What will you learn?

GROW Winter 2017 comes with two fresh modules, recommended for 9th and 10th high-school students, created on the basis of the magic recipe Practice, Learn, Step Up, but keeping the accent on the practical part:

  • GRIT TO GREAT! (recommended for 9th grade students) – with focus on personal skills and life skills
  • RISE, REWIRE, RESILIENCE! (recommended for 10th grade students) – with focus on life skills and community impact

*If you are in the 11th or 12th grade and still want to take part, we are waiting for you with open arms.

The learning experience in GROW follows a road filled with surprises and new things to discover, colored with self-knowledge, new friends, practical activities, multiculturalism, discovering values, developing abilities and another interactive “stops”.
