YSP activists have earned praise paper from the participants and organizers of the III Regional Festival called Volunteering in the Socio-Cultural Sphere, which took place on February 12 in Pervouralsk, Russia!.

The purpose of the Festival was to unite representatives of municipalities, cultural institutions, volunteer organizations in the socio-cultural sphere; exchange experience on the creation of volunteer centers and associations.

After the opening at the Forum Center, each participant could join one of 6 sections:

  • “Culture oriented volunteering”
  • “Preservation of cultural heritage”
  • “Educational program”
  • “International volunteering”
  • “Inclusion” and “Media”

In the international section, Olga Solovyova (YSP Ural) presented the goals and main ideas of YSP and the Peace Designer training.

A volunteer center coordinator of one of the public schools shared after:

“The work of the speakers was excellent. We got acquainted with new volunteer programs; learned what needs to be done to get a volunteer for the Universiade-2023. Since our activists are graduates, they were interested in getting to know more about Youth and Students for Peace.”

At the end of the international section program, there was a small dream game (part of Peace Designer training), in which YSP girls shared their experience in the project of our school:

“We are a particle of a generous soul.

“Describing the whole day in three words was professional, interesting, and very informative.”

IAYSP Russia is looking forward to furthering cooperation!
