What you will do on the program?

The PEACE Program involves a school exchange and volunteer work. Besides going to school in Europe participants of the age of 15-17 are going to take part in the “GC in you” project and the “Active Program”. For the “GC in you” project the students will pick one topic of a provided list and work on it independently. For the “Active Program” the students are going to do volunteer work in their hosting communities. At the end of their stay all participants will hold a presentation for each project in Brussels, Belgium.
