Virtual guest in classroom
For most of the teenagers we work with, remote digital communication and interaction are new and unfamiliar opportunities. The limited financial, technological and social opportunities of the families in which the young people grow up, predetermines that they have habits only for face-to-face communication.
The global changes that are taking place put teenagers at risk of an even greater danger of social isolation and a serious lag in the acquisition of technological knowledge and skills. That is why in August and September we organize a Digital Summer School for acquiring competencies. In it, young people had the opportunity to develop technological skills to work with google drive and various google apps. They gained attitudes for remote communication with volunteers via email, phone and zoom. Each of the young people implements a project related to the acquisition of professional skills important for the 21st century such as goal setting and planning, decision making, assertiveness, critical thinking, self-confidence and the ability to present yourself.
Digital Career Counseling at school
During the current school year, the career workshops continue in digital format. This allows us to work with students more often and now our meetings are weekly. This allows students to meet more volunteers and hear about their career path.
Another advantage of distance education is that it provides an opportunity for us to reach smaller and more remote areas in Bulgaria. We really want the foundation to be able to expand its activities and actually reach more remote settlements. That is why we need a resource from another person to coordinate and implement the activity of attracting new schools, new volunteers and work with students. We believe that your donations will give us this opportunity. Thank you in advance.
