  • Raise awareness and increase understanding between Russian/US youth.
  • Promote a collaborative process for Russian/US education and youth NGOs to share best practices.
  • Create opportunities for youth involvement in decision making and development processes.


NGO CyberFair   "NGO CyberFair: Connecting Through Youth Volunteerism" challenged youth to use digital media (web/video) to share their personal stories about best practices in "youth volunteerism." They published a story online about an organization or special cause for which  they volunteer their time (e.g. museums, parks, beach clean-up, hospitals, senior facilities, disaster relief, Humane Society).  Winners were announced May 2013 and projects telling the best stories about volunteerism received Apple iPads.
