//Non-stop volunteering: the start of the third wave of GoCamp 2019 with the participation of foreign volunteers

GoCamp camps will be held all across Ukraine from August 12 to 23, in which children learn foreign languages, critical thinking, creativity, leadership and entrepreneurship during summer vacations. 111 foreign volunteers from 31 countries came to Ukrainian cities and villages to help children master English, French and German.

The first two waves of GoCamp language camps took place this June, but the number of foreign volunteers who want to visit Ukraine and help ukrainian children learn English, French and German is steadily increasing. As well as the number of students who want to learn  foreign languages and get acquainted with new cultures. That is why two more waves of language camps are waiting for Ukrainian students in August and September.

“All the teachers and children were extremely welcoming, always ready to help and give  a hug. It was such an incredible experience that I wanted to come back here again and again,” said GoCamp volunteer from the United States Amanda Sawyer, remembering her experience in language camps. Like most volunteers, Amanda admits that volunteering at GoCamp is exciting and, once you try, you can no longer stop.

Two weeks of language environment, constant inspiration, practical skills and endless fun. There are four unique programs for children aged 8-16: “Animal Planet”, where the youngest learn more about animals and the environment, “Arts and Creativity” for those who want to develop critical thinking, “Innovation and Business Culture” – developed in collaboration with Kyivstar, which will teach children the basics of entrepreneurship, and for children living in rural areas, the GoGlobal team in collaboration with MHP Agriholding has developed a “School as the heart of the Community” program that empowers children to develop projects for their village improvements. All this is provided by Ukrainian teachers, program coaches and, of course, volunteer mentors who do not spare time, money and energy for a really important purpose.
