Megavikend is a weekend-long international educational event, which belongs to one of the most important in the whole AFS year.

The volunteers not only from the Czech Republic, but also from all the other European countries, have a chance to meet new people and to pick up new skills during Friday’s welcoming programme, Saturday’s workshop blocks and Sunday’s relaxing morning.

The whole event is composed of workshops and lectures in both Czech and English. Each volunteer has the option to choose a course topic, which interests him/her the most and which will be the most beneficial to his/her theoretical and practical skills.

You can look forward a weekend packed up with great fun! The whole Megavikend is accompanied with supporting programme, tons of games and trips around the surroundings.
