While getting ready for another GROW edition and preparing the sessions, we wondered how are the former trainers doing. So we asked them to write down a message for you, the teenagers who participated in this project, in order to remember the beautiful moments spent together with them.

GROW will always be one of the best experiences in my life! Almost every session we had was amazing, getting the chance to know so much wonderful people. Anyway, I guess I have a special mention for the last session with each group, they were full of emotions and despite the sadness of leaving it was one of those moments when you realize how wonderful it had been everything else.

During this project I learnt a lot of things, but if I had to choose the most important thing, I would say the value of people – how the world is full of amazing people, no matter where you are, and how you can get close to them and build strong relationships despite limitations as time and distance. As for my career, in addition to the social skills that I really improved, I can’t stop to mention how much it helped me to improve my English.

I miss you, guys, and I wish I’ll be able to visit you soon! I’m sorry because lately I’ve been talking with you less and less. I’m proud of you and I’m sure you are becoming great adults and valuable members of the society without stop being yourselves.
