What's exceptional about it?
Summer is around the corner, school will be over, and you are facing your options… Lazy days, formal classes again, an ordinary camp, or … a summer in Greece, with mates from other places of the world and simulations on the “carbon dioxide stock exchange” and the North Atlantic Council, Leadership workshops, walking in the old harbor of Chana, and swimming at the Zorba syrtaki beach?
Young persons in High school is a perceptive group called to take serious decisions of a life time often overwhelmed by the enormity and complexity of the many challenges facing the world today. Acquiring insight and skills, for further education and employment prospects, are important concerns for the younger generation.
L.F.O.F. is an original innovative International Educational Program for High school students, 15-18 years old, based on the non-formal education methods, for a learning process to encourage exploration, discussion, and personal growth. L.F.O.F. can open windows for the future, developing knowledge, skills, vision and attitudes, associated with effective and socially responsible leadership.
The working language is English, as this is an international program, adding an additional concrete benefit.
The participants are awarded with a Certificate at the Graduation ceremony to attest the acquired knowledge and skills, which can be used as an additional university entrance qualification.
The outcome provides unparalleled foundations that can take them ahead in today’s global setting, equipping them with skills which can be more than useful in many contexts in their future. Informed and engaged youth can make a positive difference for themselves and in the world, it is the next generation of thought-leaders.
L.F.O.F. is hosted at the campus of the Mediterranean Agronomic Institute of Chania, on the island of Crete, a wonderful safe location in the Mediterranean, because it is necessary to also enjoy the summer in Greece.
