Dear friends,

In the previous report we told you about the preparation of «Youth 4 Youth» project participants to creation of youth clubs and regular workshops in accordance with training program «How to become successful».

Properly after the end of basic preparation project participants started creating youth clubs in their communities and preparing project proposals in order to get funding for providing their activities. Thick and fast cheerful messages on founding clubs in different parts of the country have appeared in the project participants’ Facebook account. And the first three participants who provided the training on program «How to become successful», got presents from the Partnership for Every Child.

One of the pioneers in youth clubs creating, Dmytro from Voznesensk describes his experience in such a way: “Then everything was (held) according to the plan. We didn’t postpone. We negotiated on room (space) in the cafe «B-Club». I invited participants. Children from the orphanages and I held an interesting meeting, distributed invitations. In the college (technical school) we just informed students deprived from parental care. Everybody expressed his interest. The first meeting was held successfully.”

But who became club participants? First of all, trainers engage youth of vulnerable categories, such as: children being nurtured in orphanages, homeless care-leavers, youth in conflict with the law, internal displaced children and youth. Trainers also invited active young people to the end that participants from vulnerable youth meet with them and take over patterns of behaviour, different from theirs and develop new positive social ties.

Trainers tried to choose the most optimal meeting locations and agreed time of such meetings with the participants. So, sometimes such locations were space of a city club, library, social service or civil organisation office or college. At the initial stage some chairmen of orphanages were cautious about the idea of providing activities for their pupils external to the orphanages, but eventually they admitted the advisability of such approach. It is important that a young man attends club meetings on his own, he looks for an opportunity to take part instead waiting for specialists to visit an orphanage or any other location of his permanent residence in order to provide some developmental activities.

Club lessons, as a rule, take place every week and last 2-4 hours. They are aimed at the development of vital skills for the youth, enhancing self-assurance, rising awareness on the social rights and recognising of opportunities of their realization in an everyday life. Among other matters, participants study to analyse their actions and to design their way of life; to interact with surrounding people; to build relations with a person of the opposite sex; to settle complicated life situations; to plan a budget; to manage a household; to use time rationally. Significant attention is also paid to planning the further professional education and career.

By the 20th of March 2015 youth trainers of the project «Youth 4 Youth» have provided more than 100 workshops, which covered more than 200 young people in 12 regions of Ukraine. Thanks to your support the Partnership for Every Child have provided grants for realisation of 12 projects in 10 regions of the country at the total amount of 70000 UAH. The money a trainer spends on coffee-breaks, stationery and on the other necessary measures. And the common interesting leisure (bowling, skating and so on) helps to support participants’ motivation to visit club meetings regularly.

Soon the Partnership for Every Child will invite all trainers to the second supervisory meeting. It is planned(expected) that trainers will analyse results of youth clubs activities, will be given tips by the project experts on the settlement of complicated situations during workshops and on the motivation of the youth to active participation. And in early summer the most active participants from all clubs will gather for the final three-day camp!

Stay tuned! More fun ahead!
