The SLOVO International Agency Engaged in Career Guidance
The volunteer project “The SLOVO International Agency” unites Russian and international students. Now the project is hosting the International Volunteer School, the participants of which joined the organizers of the educational program for the participants of the seasonal schools such as “Young Virtuosos” and “Verb”.
The project participants visited the Specialized Art School with a large team, where they organized the quest “Feel the World” for schoolchildren. Trained volunteers, Russian and international students, greeted the participating children at quest stations. The school welcomed the students from Tajikistan, Armenia, Ghana, Botswana, China, and Jordan.
The quest consisted of 6 stations corresponding to 6 senses: "Taste", "Vision", "Intuition", "Hearing", "Smelling" and "Touch." At the stations, the children were asked to “taste” the country, feel its smell, assemble pictures by famous artists, determine the country by sound, understand what the item is in the bag and connect it with the culture of another nation, and use their intuition to answer questions. For the correct answers, the guys received the names of countries that needed to be entered in a table issued by each team. Also, the agents of the SLOVO talked about 42 countries, so the students were taken on a tour around the world!
The International Volunteer School is one of the projects implemented by PetrSU as the winner of the All-Russian competition of youth projects among educational institutions of higher education in 2018 with the financial support of the Federal Agency for Youth Affairs.
