Description: The camp is organized by the Voluntary Center “UNIVOL” based on Tomsk State University. Tomsk is one of the oldest cities in Siberia and considered as educational and science center. That is why every summer there is a camp for students, which is aimed at leadership and active citizenship development. This summer, the main topic of the camp is volunteering and its benefits for personal and global development. The project aims to involve children in volunteer activities. There will be educational quests for children to show them a variety of forms of volunteering.
Type of Work: During the first week of the camp, volunteers will get to know each other and exchange their experience, visit Tomsk volunteering organizations and hold some educational activities about volunteering (games, workshops, movie discussions, stories about your personal volunteering experience and inspiring cases from your country, etc.). In addition to this, they will develop an educational program for volunteer quests.
During the second week, volunteers will actively participate in volunteering master classes for pupils. They will be expected to prepare educational quests about volunteering and hold it in local school’s summer camps. Moreover, volunteers will have one more important mission: to write articles and make some videos about the camp, which they will present in the end.

Besides, they will learn new techniques and approaches of working with the youth. In particular, they will discover the tool of educational quests for children and youth.
