Are you dyslexic and between 18 – 28 years old? Join us in Malta in 2016!
Last summer, a group of European young adults with dyslexia and/or dyscalculia, came together for a week in Würzburg, Germany for the second time in the European Youth Project. Participants from Germany, Spain, Great Britain, Turkey and Switzerland joined in workshops, study visits and social activities in the beautiful surroundings of Würzburg. In 2016, the successful event returns.
Following the success of Youth camps in England and Germany, EDA has the pleasure of announcing a new international youth camp (Youth aged 18-28 years) for European youth with dyslexia. This time it will be held Between July 23 and July 30, 2016 in Malta.
This youth camp intends to provide the context for European Youth (from all over Europe) with Dyslexia to come together. We want to again give youth the
possibility to improve their knowledge of English and give them
confidence in communicating in English. Youth will have the opportunity to share their experiences in a supportive setting and get the chance to make international friends.
What to expect
You will have the opportunity to participate in different workshops. The theme of these workshops will be building our self-confidence and self-esteem. The programme includes exploring the islands of both Malta and Gozo as well as free time for swimming and relaxation. In the evenings you will spend time together with your new friends at barbecues on the beach, playing board games, film fora and free time. English will be the language in use during workshops and free time. Cost of the week (Excluding travelling to and from Malta) will be 350 euro. Further details will be provided by February 2016.
Every event and workshop is held in English and you will get a lot of oppurtunities to train your English skills. .
I am really looking forward to next year, when I hope to see familiar faces and also new faces in the project. I hope the experience this project has given me, will in the future give others the same and will continue to grow as a project. I’ve learnt to roll my “r’s”, putting “li” at the end of each word to make it sound Swiss and to communicate with actions. It just shows that an international week like this, language barriers do not stand in the way of true friendships. Emily from London, participant in the 2015 Germany Youth Camp
