A MAGICAL LEARNING ADVENTURE

SCHOOL OF YOUTH

IN A NUTSHELL

“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.

By meeting on the level of nature and exploring our common humanity, students build bridges of friendship and understanding across political, religious and geographic divides. Past students have reported the programme to be life-changing. The educational approach has been developed over the course of 15 years working with thousands of participants.

WHAT STUDENTS SAY

WHAT TO EXPECT

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.

HOW IT'S DONE

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.

WHAT YOU GET

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!
