GoCamp: Educational/Teaching Programme
The GoCamp programme is calling for volunteers from all over the world to come to Ukraine and teach kids English, German or French at summer camps all over the country!
During the two-week programme in summer 2018, children, who might have never been to other countries or have never interacted with foreigners, with the help of volunteer get an amazing possibility to become real team players, critical thinkers and tolerant people who are ready to work in a multicultural environment. The GoCamp team helps teachers to design challenging projects and tasks including outdoor activities, improving kids` knowledge of English/German/French, and, of course, enjoying the time spent with classmates and the GoCamp volunteer.
The main goal of the programme is to educate a new young generation of active and conscious citizens of Ukraine, capable of lifelong learning, and prepared for the challenges of the 21st century, fluent in foreign languages and open to other cultures and experiences. The volunteer of the programme becomes a mentor for schoolkids, helping them to break language and cultural barriers. So far 500 volunteers from 60 countries and 69900 kids all over Ukraine are involved in the project.
The GoCamp project is organized within GoGlobal initiative aimed at promoting language learning and volunteer movement in Ukraine, fostering intercultural dialogue and public diplomacy. GoGlobal is working on ensuring that Ukrainians speak foreign languages, and thus have a chance to be heard all around the world. The GoGlobal initiative is powered by Global Office NGO from Ukraine.
