The goals of this project were to train volunteer trainers who then trained students in Ukrainian orphanages. The trainers learned how to work with this group of students using interactive teaching methods. The orphans learned leadership, team building and other skills to enhance self-confidence. The students were given information about their options when they leave the orphanage after completing high school.
The volunteer trainers are meeting as a group for one last time to recount their successes and challenges in completing the project. They are using the string to illustrate their connection to the project and to one another. This group will go on to use their newfound knowledge to help youth in a number of communities around Ukraine.
