Based on the experiential educational model followed by the United World Colleges, this program aims to provide young people, from diverse social and economic backgrounds, with the opportunity to learn about:

  • Building and Strengthening a Community
  • Identity and Self-Awareness
  • Malta and Migration
  • Media and Communication
  • Leadership and Activism

Delivered by an experienced and entrepreneurial team of UWC alumni and volunteers, this 10 day programme follows the individual and core values of the UWC movement, globally:

  • International and Intercultural UnderstandingMalta SC
  • Celebration of Difference
  • Personal Responsibility and Integrity
  • Mutual Responsibility and Respect
  • Compassion and Service
  • Respect for the Environment
  • A Sense of Idealism
  • Personal Challenge

Alongside with the experiential education programme, we are committed to ensure every participant has the chance to enjoy some personal time to reflect on the different learning experiences, as well as free time to relax with new friends from all over Europe and MENA Regions. Throughout the 10 days, there will be opportunities to visit the capital of Malta, Valletta, which has been granted the prestigious recognition of European Capital of Culture for the whole of 2018. Sightseeing in the local area will also enable participants and our team to enjoy the natural beauty of this rocky Mediterranean island by visiting ancient ruins and spending an afternoon at a local beach.

We hope this is an exhilarating and impactful experience where our participants discover Malta and themselves because we firmly believe, in the words of Sarah Ban Beachnach: "the World needs dreamers and the World needs doers, but, above all, the World needs dreamers who do."
