Make a REAL difference in Moldova with Youth Development Program
- Volunteer Opportunity posted by Love Volunteers
This important youth development program puts volunteers right in the heart of an inspirational initiative that truly makes a difference to the lives of others. It involves 20 students aged 11 - 14 from Causeni district (both urban and rural areas) and will provide them with skills in communication and relationship building. Not only will they be encountering new experiences to form their life path, but they will also be building self confidence and developing leadership skills to become responsible role models within this great community. This program will provide a real-world learning opportunity for students to address global issues, to connect and influence their world in powerful and meaningful ways through digital story telling. The digital story telling and other digital options will provide students with relevant 21st century learning opportunities while creatively engaging with technology.
This program runs through until May 2018.
