'The Way': Youth Exchange - September 2017

The Way is a Youth exchange that will involve a group of young people from St.Patrick’s School to meet with a group of Spanish youngsters, and walk 150kms of the Camino de Santiago together. The idea started to take shape during an Adventurous Journey which some boys were doing in order to gain the Duke of Edinburgh Award. Many were showing the wish to challenge themselves further by going on a longer journey somewhere abroad. The idea continued to simmer slowly, until a few months later a full-fledged program was developed, potential partners in Spain were contacted, and an application was submitted under Erasmus + (Key Action 1 for Youth Mobility).
