Civic Association Drom - Cesta, plans for 1999 :
Civic Association wants to work primarily with young people, as they are the future of the community, and therefore it is important for them to be educated, proud of their specific culture and knowledgeable of the culture of the nation which they live with. The target is to prevent the separation of Romanic children and support their integration into the society where they will not have language problems and will be acquainted with both their rights and their duties. The association knows that this long-time goal can be reached only through the improvement of education and the vindication of studies on all kinds of schools.
In 1999 it was preparing a project of retraining of Romanic youth and a project of preliminary classes. It is also preparing a project of reviving of Romanic crafts to improve Romanian identity and traditions and also to solve problems of unemployment. During the summer holidays Romanic children can take part in a Summer Camp. There are also proposals to start some hobby groups: singing choir, computer-educatian group, model or karate group etc.

CHILD'S DANGING CLUB - children aged 9 - 13 years meet together once a week in the House of Children and Youth where they can learn Latin-American, folklore and disco dances. With their own choreography they can participate in children's cultural activities, festivals and dancing competitions. The Children's Dancing Club is suitable for children that are interested in dancing in a sporting form. The club is attended by 15 children. Under the direction of a skilled dance teacher, the club has a very good level. The target is not only learning several kinds of dancing styles but also learning discipline. Because the club sometimes travels outside of the region, children can see interesting monuments and places of interest in the whole Czech Republic. The founder of the Club is Civic Association Drom - Cesta, is trying to make suitable requirements for the normal existence of the club, but the possibilities are limited.
