Venue: Prcanj, Montenegro, from 22 to 29 June, 2015


„Shape Your Life” is the youth exchange that is to be organised by Mladiinfo Montenegro and Mladiinfo Slovakia under the Erasmus+ program. The idea behind this exchange is to experience a whole unique week of healthy behavior, with an aim to show the participants that living healthy does not require much effort and at the same time provides long-term benefits.

We wish to promote healthy behavior that will be understood as a combination of sport, healthy food, activism, mind power-up and becoming empowered. What we want to achieve is to motivate personal development of youth and increase awareness about themselves and the society, to increase their individual capacities through making a balance between their body and mind, to understand sport as all inclusive and open action where everyone can take part and be equally treated, no matter the background or experience as well as to use sport as a tool for enhanced social participation and inclusion.

This project will include 36 participants coming from 6 countries. Participating countries are Slovakia, Montenegro, Macedonia, Germany, Georgia and Poland.

Participants will be placed in the Scouts’ house with spacious backyard for sport activities in Prcanj, Montenegro. House is 4-5 meters away from the seaside and has its own beach. It has three floors with a beautiful view on seaside, working room with space that can be used for daily activities, gatherings and parties. You will be sleeping in mixed rooms with 6 beds, where every room has its own bathroom. The breakfast, lunch, dinner and coffee breaks are provided.

Every participant is individually entitled to receive a Youthpass Certificate, which confirms participation and validates the non-formal learning (NFL) experience of Youth exchange project.


The project aims to be fully inclusive and will therefore bring together participants with different level of physical readiness and different stage of awareness about the healthy lifestyle.
