BEST YOUTH VOLUNTEER INITIATIVE - I PRIZE: DISCOVER... (VOLGOGRAD)

The campaign Discover… held by volunteer students of Volgograd State Agricultural University was designed to teach computer literacy and the use of Internet resources related to the future profession to students of the Vocational School – Internat of Kalach-on-Don, Volgograd Region. The name of the campaign “Discover…” refers to discovering by participants the world of IT and Internet, their opportunities and abilities  as well as their professional growth in cutting out and sewing women’s and children’s clothing.

During the campaign the Training Center staff and volunteers visited the Vocational Boarding School of Kalach-on-Don several times. During the first meeting they presented the Tvoy Kurs project, taught students of the vocational school how to use Internet; each volunteer formed a mini-team of students. These mini-teams discussed their future project “Discover … your opportunities, the world of Internet and sewing (choose what is needed)” and jointly with the volunteers searched the Internet for information about cutting out, sewing, designing textile goods and about other handcrafting.       

The vocational school students were distantly taught basics of computer literacy and then the team of the Training Center staff and volunteers came to Kalach-on-Don again to discuss what was not clear during teaching and to run final certification tests.

During their third visit to the Vocational School of Kalach-on-Don the Training Center staff and volunteers taught the participants to use Internet resources that they would need in their future profession. All graduates were awarded with the certificates. In addition, an exhibition of final products made by means of using Internet resources found jointly with volunteers was organized.   

During this campaign the volunteers taught 80 people. Here is what some of the graduates say:

Andrei Podshivalov, 18 years old: “After passing the DL certification test I felt as a confident PC user. The information about my future profession found on the Internet helped in my training and will probably be useful later when I start my own business. My project turned out to be cool!”

Veronika Komagorova, 17 years old: “During my training the volunteers from Volgograd Agricultural University helped a lot. They explained topics very well and clearly. It is great that they came to us! And we didn’t let anyone down. To my mind everybody was surprised by our works. The exhibition turned out to be simply wonderful! The certificate received should be useful for my employment after the graduation.”
