On the 23rd of September on the basis of Volunteer Agency “Charitable Space” the first information meeting (Volunteer Club) took place.
The participants told how they spent their summer vacation, what new things they learned taking part in different events organized by local public organizations and shared their plans for the coming academic year.
For example а second-year student Denis told that he helped the public organization “Alliance” organize and conduct an international conference in Open Space format. During this event he tried himself in the role of а trainer and learned а lot about new technologies in conducting seminars, trainings and conferences.
We found out from Denis that it was not easy to communicate with participants from foreign countries in English and speak up.
The guests of Volunteer Club decided to help ecological organization “Do chystyh dzherel” conduct an action devoted to collect garbage in а forest and rid of springs’ obstacles near the village Mineralnoye. The main aim is to attract public attention to ecological problems of Donetsk region.
The next Volunteer Club will be held on the 6th of September. This is the best opportunity to speak English; the volunteers will make acquaintance with German volunteer Christiane Niemann. She is going to tell about herself and answer а question: why it is interesting for her to do volunteer service in Ukraine.
