Dear Friends,

feeling the cool breath of autumn in the air, we are sending to you our warmest greetings! =)

Today we would like to continue telling you the stories of achievements made by the young people who have attended the youth clubs over the last academical year.

In our latest report we summarized the results of the first “Youth 4 Youth” project year and told you about the summer camp that gathered together youth clubs participants from different regions. Listening to young people exhanging their impressions and emotions was very inspiring! Unfortunately, the camp came to an end and so the first year of our project was also completed.

However, more exciting meetings and discoveries were on their way!

As the final gathering was over, two of the most active participants, Tanya from Smila and Yaroslav from Lyubotyn, were awarded with an opportunity attend another summer camp organized by our partners from the social project “Ticket to Success”. Thanks to your constant support we were able to cover most of the expenses, so that Tanya and Yaroslav could further improve their social skills and find even more friends!

The integrational camp called “Big Game for TEENS” took place between July 26 and August 8, 2015. As the name implies, it was organized as one big quest game. During 10 days children went mountain hiking, visited an adventure park, played lots of interactive team games, took part in tourism competitions and a lot more.

A huge emphasis during in the camp was put on team work.“Besides the interesting discussions, a very valuable experience was work in groups with people that I saw for the first time in my life. Finding common grounds with them and figuring an approach towards every and each of them turned out to be pretty simple. This means that the trainings in my, since recently, favourite youth club “How to become successful” were useful!”,- Tanya told us after the camp was over.

Every evening participants presented their group impressions and experiences sitting around the camp fire. It was one of the many ways to enhance their social skills and make new friends.“Meeting new people is always interesting, but meeting with the similarly-minded people is always better and there were a lot of such people at the summer camp. We were united by many different topics. With some of them we have shared the same taste in music and same taste in books with the others. And some people just shared my life views and opinion on society relations in our country”,

Location chosen for the camp was village Dora in the neighbourhood of Yaremche in the Ivano-Frankivsk region. This village lies in a picturesque mountain valley within the Gorgany mountain range in the Carpathians. During the whole 10 days, teenagers lived in camping tents and spent lots of time in the fresh air. There was no constant time schedule and the rules of behavior were established by participants themselves.

 “It was pretty hard to get used to the camp, but I did it pretty quick and was very unhappy to leave. The easy thing was to get to know nearly everyone and even to find real friends or acquianitances. During the camp I learnt to live autonomously, without support of my brother as I am used to live. I was responsible for myself and my own actions. This camp will remain in my memory forever, as one of the most prominent moments of my life”, - Yaroslav summed up.

Currently, we are working on broadening the network of youth clubs, in order to develop leadership potential and improve life skills of the sensitive youth in all regions of Ukraine. Therefore, your further support to this project will be highly appreciated!

Please, note that today is a Bonus Day! This means every contribution will bring children two times closer to the secure future, since GlobalGiving will be matching online donations at 30%. 

Our project team would like to express to you our deepest gratitude for supporting our effort! Together we help young people to build up solid foundation for their future success!
