Participation fee

The hotel we chose for our training course is on a very good level and its good reputation ensures that we will have a very comfortable stay. However, as it is somewhat more expensive, we decided to charge each participant with 30 EUR participation fee in order to be able to cover the costs. The fee will be deduced from your travel reimbursement at the end of the training course.

We are not going to ask you for the participation fee if you are in the category of participants with fewer opportunities. In such case, just tell us when signing the reimbursement documentation at the end of the training course.

Accommodation and food

The training course takes place in Tábor – a city in South Bohemia with beautiful architecture and interesting history. We will be staying in Hotel Palcát, which is close to the city center as well as to a small lake, which will be the perfect location for doing some of our activities outside.

Your accommodation and food during the training course is covered by the Erasmus+ programme and therefore free for you.

Travel reimbursement

The travel costs will be reimbursed to the participants to a given limit. If the participant uses a sustainable means of transport, this limit can be higher.


Participants are entitled to receive a Youthpass certificate from the organiser, for recognition of their competence development during the activity. Read more about Youthpass:
