My name’s Alexey Dzhura from Russia and I worked for NGO “Siberian Initiative” (Barnaul, Russia) for 3 years. During that time I had an experience as a volunteer and as a staff in a position of Youth programs director for one and half years which provided me with experience in working with youth. It included development, organization and conducting of different events on HIV/AIDS prevention among youth. As a Youth programs director I coordinated work of the group of young volunteers. I personally took part in development of preventive programs and conducting trainings and seminars. Also I participated in organization of the all-russian annual event “Summer school for volunteers”. I pay special attention to the work with vulnerable groups. Now I’m working for NGO “Youth theatre “Light” (Samara, Russia) as a director. Now the most important focus of my interests is evolving of theatre technologies and socialization of young people. What am I inspired by?..I’m inspired by sports and spirit of youth. My favourite quote is: “Do not judge a tree by its fruit, and a man by his affairs; it may be the better or worse”. I’m confident that my responsible attitude can change many things in this world and I think that if everybody would do the same the world would become much better.
My opinion is that we should be smart and intelligent to figure out which ways for deciding our problems are more relevant than other ways. We should be creative and courageous to be efficient. Young people have huge potential but we need to learn some new approaches and technologies.
