Games, dancing and sport: this Is what took place at the UWC Summer Academy programme


The UWC Summer Academy programme was held from 14 to 27 July 2016 in the town of Dilijan, Armenia, on the UWC Dilijan international college campus.

The programme was orientated at teens aged 14 to 17.

The main partner of the programme was the Russian branch of the international Big Brothers Big Sisters organization, one of the most effective individual mentoring programmes for children in need of support.

With help from the programme’s mentors, the kids learned to ask themselves the right questions to understand what they want to do in life, to explore the world around them, and to understand what they can do to help themselves to achieve their goals, and to think up and carry out interesting and useful social projects. In addition, the kids played sport, danced, spent plenty of time outdoors and visited a rope adventure park.
