If you love learning, but you already had enough monotonous workshops and classes, then you can explore the trainings offered by the National Youth Service - SNJ and its partners! The offers are placed under the banner of "non-formal training."


This means that in concrete:

• the activities are based on experimental learning,
• The participatory approach is based on equality between trainer and learner
• learning is seen as a continuous process,
• approaches are both collective and individual.
