Crossroads of Change, Savonlinna 16.–24.10.2021

Protu is once again organizing an international youth exchange – this time in the middle of the Lakeland of Saimaa and near the wonderful town of Savonlinna. Join the unforgettable journey together with 30 youngsters from Germany and Finland!

What’s happening?

The 8-day long exchange begins on October 16th and ends on the 24th, and takes place near the town of Savonlinna. Protu and German humanist youth organization JuHu will both send 15 participants aged 16 to 20, plus teamers, who must be over 22 years, to the exchange.

Since 2017 Protu has hosted and participated in annual youth exchanges together with German and Belgian humanist youth organizations. After the unfortunate global lockdown, Protu and JuHu want to offer a chance to finally reconnect and get together in an international context.

In the context of the still ongoing pandemic, this year’s theme will be “Crossroads of Change”. We will examine and discuss national and global changes as well as personal and interpersonal experiences during the pandemic. We will also bring up topics related to the future. As typically in Protu camps, there will be loads of games, challenges, and non-formal learning methods.

The participants will create a major part of the program themselves, so you need to be prepared to actively take part in the project during the late summer through different online meetups. There is also an Advance Planning Meeting in Helsinki in September, for which one of the team members and one of the participants will be selected.

How much does it cost?

The cost for the participants is 100 euros which includes travelling costs to campsite and back as well as accommodation, food, and all travelling and activities during the exchange.

How to get in?

If you want to jump in to this unforgettable youth exchange with Protu, please write an informal application or motivational letter by 30.9. and send it to tuomas.rutanen@protu.fi. Answer at least the following questions in English:

  • Who are you?
  • How old are you?
  • What is your history with Protu?
  • What kind of person are you, and how would you see yourself behaving in a big, multinational youth group?
  • Describe your language skills (working English is required, other language skills are a welcome bonus)
  • Do you have other skills or experience that might be useful during the exchange?
  • If chosen to participate in the exchange, are you able to commit to the planning process which begins in September?
  • Your contact information, and if you are under 18, your parent’s/guardian’s contact information.
  • Anything other relevant to your participation (possible health/mobility issues etc.)

State in the headline of your application whether you’re applying for a youth (aged 16 to 20) position or a team member (aged 22+) position. All applications and information contained in them will be processed with highest confidentiality. The International Section will reserve the right to interview any prospective participants as they deem necessary, either personally, or over the phone.
