About Scoala de Valori
Şcoala de Valori is a modern non-governmental and non-profit organization whose VISION is to change the core values of Romanian society.
Romania is in dire need of role models and we believe that investing in Education and Youth will provide a steady supply. Școala de Valori was created to guide Romanian teenagers on the path of self-discovery that takes place during their high-school years and help them develop a strong moral compass. We help them find out who they are and what they like. We help them believe in themselves and the choices that they make. We help them trust their inner voice.
Şcoala de Valori provides a NON-FORMAL environment where students can voice their thoughts.
We remove the constraints of formal learning and encourage our students to learn new things by having fun. We let them find their own way of solving problems and use all the tools we have to grow their personalities: workshops on values and ethics, coaching sessions, camps, international programs and meetings with people who share their life and work experience. Our approach is designed for long-term implementation and covers all stages of their high-school experience, starting from their freshman year right up to their senior year.Our most popular and most successful project is GROW, a program developed in partnership with AIESEC. GROW is the only program in Romania focused on non-formal education. Built on a 4-year curriculum, GROW aims at supplementing the education young teenagers receive in a regular Romanian high-school environment. The philosophy behind GROW is: Practice, Learn, Step up. Over a period of 6 weeks, students take part in 10 interactive workshops delivered by international trainers. To find out more about GROW, please visit the project’s website: www.growedu.ro
