Active Citizens Camp - Student Leadership

Active Citizens Camp is a youth-oriented platform that aims to develop social and community leadership skills; promote ideas and the exchange of experience; bring awareness of opportunities for community development.   

We invite you to take part in our online Active Citizens camp to meet other youth leaders from all around Ukraine and learn how to interact with people effectively using empathy as the core tool. 

Camp schedule: Weekdays 29 November - 15 December, 2021.
All sessions are mandatory except for those held on Wednesdays.    

The camp has two modules. The first module will help you understand your motivation to be an activist, learn how to have an effective dialogue and plan sustainable social initiatives. Certified Active Citizens master-facilitators will be here to guide you. 

The second module is all about becoming a leader and starting social innovations. You will have the chance to apply new knowledge at practice and create a social project for your community. If your idea is among the top eight, you will get UAH 15,000 to carry it out in January-February.
