Bartek & Alex K.

Hey, my name is Bartek and I'm 22 years old. I'm studying Slavic Languages at the
University of Vienna and next semester I should (hopefully) finish my Bachelor. My passions are reading, watching movies (above all fantasy genre) and mountainbiking. There is nothing better than being in the mountains, breathing the fresh air and feeling free of all things. Just me and nature.
What do I like about youth projects?
The youth exchange in Croatia was my first experience in that kind of stuff, so I was quite curious how it will be like. And I have to say it's totally worth it. Meeting new fantastic people from many different countries,  learing new things and having much fun are just a few benefits you get from it. I highly recommend it to everyone who likes working in teams and want to learn new ways of non-school teaching.
What have I experienced by taking part in YPs?
I met many folks with whom I want to stay in contact. Also how to motivate myself and how to help people in different situations in their lives.
Why am I part of wEUnite? / Who told me about it ?
A good friend of mine(she's even one of the founders, how fancy :P) told me about these projects and I immediatly wanted to participate in it. So I did and and will try to participate in many other projects like this.

My Name is Alex, I'm 24 years old and I life in Vienna. At the moment I study primary
education but I hope that I will finish next year. I really love sports, I play soccer, workout at the gym and normally I go by bycyle to university and work. I like trains a lot, sports (as I said), history, Poland and travelling. Next to my studies I work, and I am also quite an active person.

What do I like about youth projects?
I really like the aspect of cultural exchanges because you can learn a lot and I could also practice my foreign language skills during the project I've been to. And the best part is that you meet a lot of new people there. 

What have I experienced by taking part in YPs?
Some weeks ago, in Croatia, it was my first time on a youth project and I think I learned a lot. I thought that I know a lot about sports and fitness but I really learned many new things.
I also enjoyed the group work and the "going out of the comfort zone"  part a lot.

Why am I part of wEUnite? / Who told me about it ?
Nina (one of the founders) told me about the Youth Exchange, and I was interested, went there and now I am here ;)

wEUnite is a youth organization found in 2014. Our main aim is to organize and take part in as many youth projects and exchanges as possible to give young people the opportunity to learn for life, see the world and create social contacts and friendships throughout Europe.
