Exams, homework, waking up early in the morning? No, thanks! The summer holiday is here and we can’t wait to put aside the worries, notebooks and school bags and say YES to all the experiences and adventures this summer is preparing for us. Pool, sea, mountains, favorite music festival? Picnic, excursions, relaxing, new friends? But what about some non-formal education? The holiday’s to do list is full of opportunities, we just have to prioritize them appropriately for a positive effect guaranteed.

1540 teenagers have decided that they want more than a summer of relaxation, they want a really GROWzav summer, so they said “yes” to the non-formal challenge offered by Scoala de Valori and AIESEC Romania and they are preparing for the 16th edition of the largest national program of nonformal education, taught in English: GROW.


Bucharest, Cluj-Napoca, Tirgu-Mures, Timisoara, Brasov, Craiova, Iasi, Galati, Pitesti and Suceava are the 10 cities ready to start the GROWzaveala, bringing together for 6 weeks 4 Romanian trainers and 30 international trainers from countries like USA, China, Brazil, Hong Kong, Egypt, India, Belgium, Slovakia, Turkey, Mexico, Azerbaijan, Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Russia or Pakistan, ready to share their knowledge, culture and thoughts to the participants.

With workshops on leadership, entrepreneurship, authenticity, personal branding, healthy habits, career guidance or writing a CV, GROW Summer 2016 plans to train the teens’ minds for the coolest mentally marathon through the RUNNER and WORLD modules, recommended to 10th and 12th graders.


A summer that combines games, challenges, non-formal workshops, new friends from all continents, workshops in English and unforgettable memories sounds GROWzav, isn’t it?

The summer is here, let the GROWzaveala begin!

We’re ready, you?
