Sharing Knowledge at Lentvario M. Šimelionio Gymnasium: A Highlight of the ETSpert Training

The ETSpert training course for youth workers took a exciting turn with a visit to Lentvario M. Šimelionio Gymnasium. This wasn’t just a school visit though, it turned into a lively place where everyone learned from each other!

Instead of classes, the gymnasium halls buzzed with ten workshops happening all at once. Here, the ETSpert participants became the teachers and facilitators! They led sessions on important topics for young people, like European values, expressing yourself through art, setting goals, sharing cultures, and thinking critically. This exchange of knowledge was a great experience for both the ETSpert participants and the gymnasium students.

The visit wrapped up with a special session back in the gymnasium. Here, students learned all about the European Solidarity Corps program and other opportunities for young people, like youth exchange programs, volunteering projects, and even a program to explore Europe Discover EU.

On top of all the learning, everyone were also impressed by the gymnasium itself. The classrooms were bright and beautiful, and everything was well-equipped to help students learn. Definitely a good practice example in the region.

A big thank you goes to Vita Sadauskienė for inviting us and helping explore the school. This visit was a win-win for everyone involved – the ETSpert participants, the students, and the teachers of Lentvario M. Šimelionio Gymnasium!
