University years represent a fundamental moment of growth, not only professional, but also personal.
In this context, the goal of NECSTCamp is to help students to become people aware of their abilities, able to live in harmony with themselves and with others, not only during their studies but also in their future career.
The approach behind the project is holistic, based on immersing students in situations that make them think deeply about themselves, their abilities, and their limitations.
Sports, especially CrossFit, represent a metaphor for life between the desks. During classes, both of CrossFit and of college, it becomes apparent early on that each person has different abilities. During training, each person is helped to recognize that he or she is unique and capable of completing the day's workout, regardless of the results of his or her partner; likewise, each student must be helped to achieve the same awareness in daily life.
Knowing how to define goals and motivations is key to knowing yourself better and living a better life.
Psychological counseling is used to bring the observations that each person has gained from personal experiences. The goal is not to change one's habits, but to help one understand how habits impact daily life.
The collaboration with AVIS Milan is emblematic. Choosing to donate blood implies the need to take care of oneself and one's habits, and to understand that these have an effect on everything we do. It is fundamental to educate oneself to respect one's own person, understood as a subject that has its own performance and limits.
Finally, diversity is affirmed and recognized as a defining element: something that unites us all, distinguishing us. Students should not experience diversity as a limiting factor, but as something that makes them unique.
NECSTCamp works on this awareness, and thus on the acceptance that each of us is simply different.
Often we are our own worst judge: mindfulness becomes a means to be happier in our daily lives, understand our priorities and pursue them.
