Summary what was youth exchange about:

The main aim of this project was facilitating the process of building participants’ personalities by using sports as a tool for developing their character and behaviour traits.
The project name – “Starting line” – acts as a metaphor that showed that starting point in personal development of each person is just like a starting line of a marathon: a point where you need to set your personal goals, know your strengths and weaknesses, focus on achieving what you want while being able to respect your competition.
After starting your life marathon, it is important to have resilience and “never give up” attitude, overcome the fear of losing, while still be able to face disappointments and start all over again. Overly, it is the fair play, respect, tolerance and self confidence that makes your life marathon extraordinary. Such values and attitudes are the envisaged results of this project – the final line of the marathon.

– To foster the process of identifying personal strengths and abilities of the participants;
