Where you'll be staying

Venue & Location

We understand that an exceptional learning experience extends beyond the course content – it also encompasses the accommodations and atmosphere in which you immerse yourself. With that in mind, we have carefully selected a stunning villa called Finca Limón for your stay. Located just 30 km from the vibrant city of Málaga, this charming villa provides a serene oasis away from the urban hustle and bustle. It serves as the ideal setting to fully engage in the course, bond with fellow participants, and enjoy some well-deserved relaxation.
The participants will be accommodated in shared rooms for 2, 3, 4, or 5 people. We will try to spend most of our time outdoors (as the weather permits). Some activities, due to their nature, will take place indoors at the facilities.

Place includes:
  • Swimming pool
  • Terrace
  • Indoor common areas
  • Barbacue
  • Outdoor areas
  • Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be served at the same location every day and we are also providing vegetarian options!

We are confident this is the ideal location to thoroughly enjoy the company of new-found friends, big healthy doses of clean fresh air, and participating in the planned activities. This is genuinely a rare chance to explore a distinct and scenic region of Malaga, Spain.

Discover non-formal learning!

What can you expect?

The Program

The program begins with ice-breaking activities, followed by a gradual immersion into the core subject matter. Each day will consist of engaging workshops, games, and various activities designed to stimulate your creativity and enhance the overall experience. Knowledgeable trainers will provide guidance throughout this journey, fostering a collaborative environment from start to end. You will learn through non-formal education about various cybersecurity and AI topics, gaining the ability to understand concepts, use tools, and acquire the fundamentals needed to continue learning new things at home.

The Networking

Regardless of whether you’re an introvert or an extrovert, you can eagerly anticipate forging numerous fantastic friendships. We’ll be spending a week in the company of 22 lively and enthusiastic individuals near the city of Malaga – quite an adventure, isn’t it? It’s typical for participants to maintain contact long after the event concludes, so don’t pass up this extraordinary opportunity. If you’ve ever yearned to connect with new friends, there’s no better occasion than this one. Additionally, it’s the perfect way to become a part of Youth Europa and collaborate with fervent activists dedicated to promoting non-formal education on a wider scale.

The Unexpected

Training Courses are not something that just a small group of people contribute to. Each participant has a chance to shape this event into something really memorable and useful. We highly encourage you to come up with new ideas and elements that can be added to the program even during the exchange itself. We will never force you to facilitate an activity, but perhaps taking this step out of your comfort zone will teach you something valuable. No worries, we will let you know how you can contribute and help the organizing team if you’re interested.

Have fun while developing yourself!

Social program

While the main sessions of the training course are mostly related to topics in cybersecurity and AI, we also got a social program planned for you. This will take place on each evening after the main sessions have ended. There will be cultural nights, theme parties, treasure hunt, and much more. It has also become a tradition of ours that each national group will bring some of their local cuisines for other participants to taste.
