Discover Youth Opportunities in Russia!

Are you interested in working with Russian youth? Would you like to travel to Russia and learn about youth opportunities there? Do you want to know more about career and funding for youth projects with Russian organizations ? Then – join the event!

We invite youth workers to visit Moscow to discover youth opportunities in Russia!

We are organizing a partnership building activity for youth workers who are interested in learning more about career opportunities in Russia, partnership with Russian organizations and in general – youth work in Russia – to join the event!

Despite of a difficult political situation Russia is a European country (geographically) with active youth who has a lot in common with the rest of European youth. At the same time Russian youth is slightly isolated from European youth and European youth work and there are limited possibilities for cooperation. We invite youth workers who might be interested in working with Russian youth and Russian youth organizations to join the partnership building activity where you will meet representatives of Russian youth organizations, meet Russian young people, will learn about youth work in Russia.

What the program will include?

General introduction about youth work in Russia – a trainer will share with you general information about the state of youth work in Russia
Meeting youth workers from Russia – you will meet youth workers from Russian youth organizations who are open for cooperation Learning about career opportunities in Russia – Moscow is one of the most attractive destinations for expats to work in. This counts also for youth work. We will share with you information about career opportunities in Russia in youth field (and not only!) as well as the opportunities for the participation in youth projects (volunteering, internships) Learning about funding opportunities for projects with Russian organizations – there is a number of organizations providing funding for organizing projects on topics related to Russia. You will learn about those organizations and the ways of applying for grants from those organizations.
Visits to Russian youth organizations – you will visit Russian youth organizations to see how youth organizations are functioning in Russia
Sessions upon the request of participants

We would like to aims of each participant within the event to be met. For that reason we will ask each participant to share their expectations for the trip – which organizations they would like to visit, what they would like to learn etc – and we will do our best to design the sessions that will meet the requirements of participants.

The course will start on Sunday and will finish on Sunday next week. We realize that the most of participants will be in Moscow for the first time and therefore we included 2 days for tourist in Moscow. The sessions will be on MON, TUE, THU and FRI and that means you will have WED and SAT free to do some touristy activities in Moscow (we will suggest the tourism program for those two days but of course you are welcome to follow your own program).
