Are you not sure that this is the right thing for you? Are you afraid of not knowing anyone? Loose all your insecurities and join us! Megavikend will for sure amaze you and here is why:

1) it is one of the biggest AFS educational events from the whole Europe
2) workshops and training are run by experienced trainers
3) you will meet many interesting people, not only from the Czech republic
4) you will have a lot of fun and you will get to know the city like a local
5) and many more

This idea originated in 2007 when a group of young AFS volunteers decided to organize the first-ever session of this educational event. For all the seasons, the goal of Megavikend remains the same – connect young people from the whole of Europe and let them educate themselves, share their knowledge, experience, tips, and tricks, and thus participate in the development of our society. Every year, the event is visited by more than 120 participants from all around the globe. And you can be part of it!
