From Camp TOBE 2012, Kozayaten, Ukraine
A Peace Corps program, GLOW (Girls Leading Our World) and TOBE’s (Teaching Our Boys to Excel) main objective is to raise awareness of gender issues in Ukraine, particularly those facing youth. The weeklong program includes lessons, discussion sessions, team-building activities and fun excursions designed to foster a sense of unity and empowerment. All activities are designed to teach respect, responsibility, volunteerism, civic participation, and leadership in a context of gender equality.
Campers are selected for their leadership potential, open-mindedness, and maturity, rather than their level of English, since we prioritize the development of young leaders. While sessions will be targeted at the youth attending the camps, we also expect Ukrainian chaperons will have a chance to demonstrate and develop their skills by helping to lead some of the sessions. The girl’s camp has only female counselors, and vice versa, to provide positive role models of the same gender to youth, as well as a comfortable environment to share and grow. Room, board, and all activities are free of charge for the participants, but in order to ensure that all the qualified individuals identified may attend, WE NEED YOUR HELP FOR 2013!!!!
