Announcement: Call for Volunteers! Ukraine

Civiс initiative GoGlobal invites you to share a worldwide call for volunteers for English summer camps in Ukraine!

As you know nowadays Ukraine is going through the difficult times. For us, however, it is a high time to act. We want to open Ukraine to the world and to raise a new generation of children. Children with open and strong mindset. Children, who would be leaders with relevant and up-to-date skills and global thinking, which our country needs that much.

However, we cannot deal with this goal ourselves. Therefore, we strongly ask you to support our initiative and help us to develop a modern and democratic country!

GoGlobal is an initiative of the Global Office NGO which aims to promote the opportunities of foreign language knowledge, expand the horizons and establish English as a vital necessity. Our team is working on ensuring that Ukrainians speak English, and thus have a chance to be heard all around the world. The English language is the means which will allow us to integrate into the European and world society.

GoCamp is the innovative summer camps where volunteers from all over the world help Ukrainian kids to learn English. Nevertheless, the camps are not only about learning. They are about trust, tolerance, openness, and integrity. In 2016, 126 schools already held their summer camps jointly with 120 volunteers from 40 countries. The project served more than 9 000 children.

This year our aim is even more challenging. We invite 1000 foreign volunteers and involve more than 100 000 Ukrainian children to participate in the GoCamp project! It will be the biggest international volunteers project in Ukraine.

The initiative is already supported by the Presidential Administration of Ukraine, the Ministry of Education and Science, the U.S. Embassy in Ukraine, the British Council, the United Nations in Ukraine and other world-known partners.
