Healthy Youth - training course in Mutenice 🇨🇿

"Between the 25th of July and the 3rd of August in Mutenice, Czech Republic three of our members participated to Healthy Youth training course.

The course focused on healthy living, sports activities and team-building workshops. One of the most memorable activities was the 30 km walk and talk hike to Vbrice, the so-called “hobbit village”. We got the chance to discover the Czech region known for wine production and local culture while getting to know each other.

Sports activities were varied and at times challenging. Here we can count volleyball, basketball, fitness, yoga practice, running, swimming, hiking, badminton, as well as games and energizers that focused on physical activity, coordination and cooperation. Each night we got the chance to get to know the cultural background of each 8 participant countries.

After a week of training and learning new things, we really got to put our new skills into practice, on the second to last day, when one of the activities was to organize sports games for the children in the village.

Free time was spent bonding with our colleagues, learning about their culture and grasping the Czech culture as well, with day trips to Brno and walks around our village.

We leave the Czech Republic more aware of the importance of physical activity, new techniques that we can use as youth workers, as well as new insights about ourselves as individuals."
