Most Education Summer Youth Exchange 2012 - Faster, Higher, Stronger

Sunday 22nd Jul 2012

This summer we have successfully continued a youth exchange project originated in 2010 and specially designed to give our young people from the North East a personal experience and confidence to work in the international context developing interpersonal and communicational skills.

Groups of young people from England, Germany, Bulgaria, Finland, Slovakia, China and Russia spent an impressive 9 days together in Durham City.
The theme of the Project was Citius, Altius, Fortius, which is "Faster, Higher, Stronger" and was dedicated to the Olympic Games in London 2012.
The Youth Exchange gave an opportunity for these young people to explore and enjoy a vast variety of sports and games in truly international settings.
Young participants planned and delivered joint workshops for wider audiences of other children and visitors.

Most Education Youth Exchange was successful in engaging young people in the preparation for the intercultural exchange encouraging consideration for potential cultural sensitivities and active participation in a variety of international workshops.

The participants learned about different cultures, customs and language through the team work.
In the context of the project, the young people involved took responsibility for many aspects of the programme such as delivering the Youth Manifesto, which was created during their workshops and activities.
Each of the participants has been rewarded with a “Youth Pass Certificate” from the European Commission.

Acquisition of these important skills will enhance the youngsters’ chances in life and stand them in good stead for the future. Most Education links people from around the world developing friendship which will last for life.

Next year the Most Education World Youth Exchange will take place from 19th to 27th July 2013. Interested parties, potential participants and kind sponsors please contact the Project Leader Lana Briton on

Most Education is a proud sponsor of the DTTIA.
