Pilistvere, Estonia –The Estonia project took place in an ancient center of the historical Nurmekunna County, Pilistvere. Education for this project was presented by Dr. Ron Burr, assisted by local religious and community leaders. Traveling to neighboring towns of Poltsamaa and Viljandi allowed us to visit museums and churches. These were wonderful cultural experiences, as was the musical, song and dance performance by four students from the Viljandi Cultural Academy!

The Estonia RYS included three separate projects. First, one group worked at the Lutheran church cleaning and finishing the restoration work in the steeple of the church. The second group worked on two adventure courses which benefited the community and could be enjoyed by everyone. Finally, on the third project, the group built an extension to one side of the sauna and on the roof.

Dr. Burr held the project reflection at a youth camp, a beautiful countryside setting filled with a variety of flowers and grasses.
