Youth Health and Well Being (September Post)

G.W.N.N’s ‘Youth Volunteering – Into Action’ Exchange trip in Italy was a great success.  We visited many different parts of the country including: Cinque Terre, Portovenere and Pisa.  We volunteered at the Summer Festival in a small community called Bolano.  We helped out with Children’s Workshops, helped to set up dining areas and performed, and taught, Scottish Country Dancing to the locals.  The youths participated enthusiastically in the Exchange Programme activities and fully immersed themselves in the Italian culture.  A great time was had by both Scots and Italians!

T-Night have enjoyed a lunch trip to Jimmy Chungs (Yum Yum!) and have been taught some DJ-ing skills from Connor during ‘Music Night’.  Well done Connor…..or should I say DJ Connor?!

1 Group  have begun to plan for the ‘Destination- Healthier Future’ Exchange in Slovenia (3/10/14 to 10/10/14).  We are looking forward to meeting the youths and leaders from the other participating countries – Ireland, Finland, Czech Republic and Slovenia.  Our excitement is growing!
