Summer youth festival "Searching for synergies with other actor"

 

In June, between 13th and 22nd, a summer festival was organized for the Youth Clubs members. It was held at the Monastery of Zabriceni, Edinet district. The summer festival was divided in 3 shifts by 3 days each, with a maximum number of possible participants of 50. Due to the fact that none of the shifts was filled to its maximum capacity, the total number of participants was 118. But, it was ensured that youngsters from all 10 Youth Clubs were present at the summer festival.

The program of the summer festival was structured to offer the participants a mix of activities: trainings, team building activities, free time activities, games and competitions. So, in the mornings there were the training sessions and in the afternoon there were team building activities and games. In the evening there were movie watching sessions.

During the summer festival, youngsters met students from the Association of Orthodox Students from Moldova, which were present as volunteers. So they have exchanged positive experiences of community activities and volunteering. Also, youngsters exchanged information between Youth Clubs and even made new friendships.

At the end of the summer festival, youngsters were willing to stay more, and to continue their interaction with the youth from other clubs. One of the most frequent wishes in the evaluation forms was to have such events organized more often and for longer periods of time.
