“I think what I liked most about the NOW Journey was the diversity of the participants. We are different in age, where we come from and in many other ways. But we have in common that we want to make this world a better place. As for myself, the NOW Journey was really an eye-opening experience! I got to see myself and the world in a different perspective: we all have the power to create change and to make things better in our local communities.”
“Looking back, I can totally say that NOW change my life in so many aspects. Through my project, the coaching and the connection with the others, I improved my leadership skills, my self-awareness, as well as my communication and project development skills. During the program I had a chance to visit my Buddy in Bosnia which was a unforgettable experience where I learned a lot about other cultures and how we have a lot in common after all.”
“When I went to the NOW Encounter, it was the first time when I left my country alone. I was terrified of doing this with totally strangers in a language I did not use before outside of school. Yet, I had the feeling that I was in the right place. The NOW Journey was one of the most important milestones in my life. I got to know myself, and I learned to believe in a better world and in a better me. The things I’ve learned during the program gave me the strength to start a program in my hometown on my own.”
NOW Journey participants must be young in heart and age. The program has been tailor made for youth aged 18 – 25. We might be a bit flexible so do reach out if you’re close to that age range.
If you’re in, you’re in for good! To make this program happen, we rely on you committing for the whole six months. During the online period, the NOW Journey is not a full-time program, but we expect you to dedicate 5-10 hours/week to NOW.
We want the NOW Journey to be accessible to all youth no matter their circumstances. Together we can make that happen!
The full cost of the Journey is €1000/person – plus travel costs*. However, we would like to make sure that young people can participate no matter their financial situation. So please don’t let money stop you and apply below!
*We can offer travel reimbursement for participants who are living in TURKEY, ESTONIA, GREECE, ROMANIA, SWITZERLAND and BULGARIA*
