The Multi-LEARN Institute within the initiative Mateneen has announced upcoming dates for its Project LeiLu at Rotondes on 3 and 10 December 2016, and 7 and 21 January 2017, from 15:00 to 18:00.

LeiLu, Learning to be in the new environment- A holistic approach for youngsters in Luxembourg (2016-2018), financed by the Oeuvre Nationale de Secours Grande-Duchesse Charlotte, is a newly launched project by the Multi-LEARN Institute which offers young people between the ages of 15 to 30 the possibility to use this period of transition, for example school failure, job searching, and arriving somewhere new in the case of asylum seekers, as an opportunity to learn about themselves, others and their environment.

LeiLu proposes six modules of group activities led by different partners and instructors. These include the National Centre for Audiovisual who invites young people to explore the history, society and culture of Luxembourg in its module “Visual discovery of Luxembourg”, the Luxembourg Taekwondo Association who is offering 30 weeks of Taekwondo training for body-mind discipline, and the Euromediation Institute who offers the module “Anti-violence” which teaches how to accept personal aggressiveness and transform it into something creative.

The other three modules deal with team building through sports, exploring one’s own talents, and the question of religious tolerance. These modules are organised in cooperation with Infinitus, the Eglise Protestante du Grand-Duché de Luxembourg, the Baha’i community of Luxembourg and the Confederation of Aid and Care Organisations (COPAS), among other guest associations.

LeiLu activities will take place throughout December and 2017 during school holidays, in the evenings or on weekends. A certificate will be awarded at the end of 2017.

Potential participants should sign up on LeiLu’s Facebook page (LeiLu.lux) and join the free events “LeiLu at Rotondes”, which provide information on the project and take place twice a month.

Participants will receive a free drink and French fries while learning about the project.
