In addition to professional development, the participants of our project had the opportunity of studying deeper the specifics of integration into Swedish society and culture. The following events were organized as part of the program:
Excursion-quest through the Old Town (Gamla Stan). The participants learned about the history of Sweden, guessed riddles and performed various tasks.
Coaching session "My best version of life". This event was aimed at self-discovery and development of the participants, helping them determine their life goals and ways to achieve them.
A trip to Orrefors. During the three-day trip to the city of Orrefors, Småland, the project participants stayed at the hotel of Goodness of People, an NGO that works with youth projects. There were quest-excursions to get to know the culture of the Swedish city and the locals, as well as group tasks aimed at identifying and solving problems that the participants face as young people in Sweden. In addition, job coach Oksana Olsson, who joined us on the trip, held several informal sessions with the participants.
These additional measures, in our opinion, contribute to a deeper understanding and successful integration of participants into Swedish society.
