Program and Program Preparations

The overall program is found in the post Staff Seminar 2013 – Program Overview. Don’t forget to bring information papers to other participants, especially about how to volunteer at your centre. Also prepare for the My Centre, My Country evening.

In the My Centre, My Country workshop you are invited to present your centre and country, and to tell everybody about what your centre has to offer, for example: its location, facilities, activities – international PR! Please also feel free to bring some traditional food, candy etc from your country.

This year if possible please prepare small stickers with your centres logo (20 pieces, about 3x4cm).

Before we start with the workshop we will have a walk around with a really short presentation of the centres (please prepare a presentation of 120 seconds max).
