“An entirely refreshing experience. Opened my eyes but (more importantly) opened my heart like never before.”
– Alice Hill-Woods, Participant
The School Of Youth brings together young people (ages 16-27) from different social, cultural and religious backgrounds to engage in a magical 10-day learning experience. Blending outdoor adventures with music, art and philosophy, the programme is highly innovative, developing life-skills related to peace and sustainability.
You will join a vibrant international community of learning and explore how living together joyfully and in harmony with each other and nature is possible. The School of Youth is a holiday experience you will treasure for life and a magical learning adventure that complements traditional education at school or university.
Professional facilitators and guides create a safe and caring atmosphere in which you feel inspired to deeply inquire into themes that truly matter to your hearts. Activities include rock climbing, canyoning, song writing, land art, yoga, a 24h wilderness solo, communication & team skills, story-telling and all the magic that emerges in between.
The learning experience is transformative, empowering you to become a more responsible leader in all aspects of your life. You will make new friends from around the world, and discover many new perspectives, trancending cultural, geographic and religious divides. We believe that your example has the power to inspire your family, your community, your nation and the world!
We are a team of experienced facilitators and guides totally committed to your growth as an individual and to your flourishing as part of our community. We participate on the same eye height with you and hold the space for all of us to explore, connect and discover.
