This project has been specially designed for those looking to volunteer, but are aged between 15 and 17 years old. Throughout this project, our younger volunteers will have greater supervision, training, and world-class leaders in the field who have been chosen for their mix of relevant experience and ability to mentor and inspire young people.
There are more than 100,000 children in more than 140 orphanages in Ukraine. The activities involved include the teaching of English to a range of ages, playing with the children in order to build up their confidence and improve their social skills, and taking part in or devising extra-curricular sessions in such subjects as drama, dance and assorted sports. Volunteers can also become involved by assisting local staff. Former volunteers on these programs report how affectionate and open the children were, curious to know about the volunteers and eager to learn and play.
