Areas of work

Resilience training center

Working with young people is at the very center of our system of values. But the main task that we practice is to share our experience and knowledge with others- social workers, teachers, parents, guardians. We lead seminars where we cover various themes and values, all participants gain valuable information and a certificate. Our seminars are interactive, interesting and often take place outdoors.

Camp programs

"Resilience Center" offers various camp programs for children and young people- Resilience camps, foster children camps, adventure camps. They are led by certified camp leaders working with young people together with psychologists and mentors. The time in our camps passes by very quickly and children remember all the fun moments with their new-found friends as well as the interesting bonding tasks, language practice and sports.
