About:

"We live once. But every day"
The most interesting "thing" in this world for me is a person: a learning, working and growing person.
Within the framework of international youth work there are many opportunities for persons to grow and I am very happy to support them along their ways by experiential learning, holistic approach, inner readiness based competence development and other ways a la non formal learning.

Monika Kezaite-Jakniuniene has 4 references for past work as a trainer.
