About the Organization
Global Office is a non-governmental organisation aimed at fostering informational, social, cultural and political integration of Ukraine into the global community, as well as internal integration.
The Global Office’s projects teach the Ukrainian youth think critically, be tolerant, know civics fundamentals and overcome language and cultural barriers. At the same time, foreign participants of our projects discover the real Ukraine, free of stereotypes.
The GoCamp programme is calling for volunteers from all over the world to come to Ukraine and teach kids English, French and German at school camps all over the country!
During the 2.5-weeks programme children, who might have never been to other countries or have never interacted with foreigners, with the help of volunteers get an amazing possibility to become real team players, critical thinkers and tolerant people who are ready to work in a multicultural environment.
All volunteers will have a preparing 3-day-training session before leaving to camps in schools where they will be taught different aspects of work with schoolchildren, children safety issues, new interactive methods of working with kids, will get information about Ukraine, its life and traditions as well as basic Ukrainian language. The volunteers do not have to be experts in GoCamp programme items. The main goal is to accompany teachers-coordinators and to become friends and mentors for children!
