Laboratory with Yaroslav Fedorchuk

YMCA Lviv continues training within the “Laboratory of Social Projects” supported by Lviv Regional State Administration, project Youth Embrace (supported by SIDA) and the KFUM og KFUK i Distrikt Aarhus (Denmark).

The Laboratory is teaching young people of Lviv and Lviv region to generate their own project ideas, working with donors, presentation and implementation of own initiatives. Twenty students are obtaining the skills of team building, design thinking, creation and testing new ideas, grant-writing and project implementation, and communication campaigns.

The sessions on the creation and implementation of projects are followed by the training on public speaking conducted by Yaroslav Fedorchuk, the actor of Les Kurbas theater. He teaches the self and project presentation in public and how to overcome the fears of public speech. Yaroslav is coordinating the video shooting by participants.
