Volunteering at the Red Cross is your PLUS!

The Red Cross of Ukraine together with the National Youth Council of Ukraine – NYCUkraine and other partners are launching a new project – “Youth Leaders of Ukraine”, which aims to develop youth leadership and volunteer teams in the country. The project gives young people the opportunity to take an active part in shaping and changing their communities through social initiatives and involvement in public life – thus contributing to a more developed and stable Ukrainian society.

What will we do?
✔️ We will find active leaders among young people in pilot locations – Kharkiv (Kharkiv, Kupyansk, Krasnograd) and Dnipropetrovsk (Dnipro, Kryvyi Rih, Pavlograd) regions;
✔️ We will teach them effective leadership, team building, identification of community needs, development of social activities of various formats and scales in the spirit of Red Cross values ​​and principles – and we will support their implementation;
✔️ Teach humanitarian diplomacy and youth advocacy – and support the advocacy campaigns of our youth leaders;
✔️ We will train and support mentors who will help our leaders gather and unite volunteer teams;
✔️ Ensure democratic elections of leaders at the highest levels – district, regional, national;
✔️ We will gather representatives of public and state organizations and all community members to find common solutions to issues in the life of youth and the community as a whole;
✔️ Let’s create conditions for Danish-Ukrainian youth exchange of experience – as far as quarantine restrictions allow – the most successful youth leaders of the project will go to Denmark to share and gain leadership and team experience!
