MASCOT is a 9-day English camp for active young Ukrainians which is held in Mykolaiv where we discover talents of our campers through extracurricular activities in music, theater and rhythm, develop their teamwork skills and expand their knowledge in public speaking, project management, conflict management, etc. by using methods of non-formal education.
MASCOT is aimed at active young Ukrainian aged 14-20 who are interested in developing skills in teamwork and personal leadership skills, taking information about creating their own social projects in, regardless of their social, economic status or religion.
The aim of MASCOT is to create an enabling environment in Mykolaiv in order to familiarize Ukrainian active youth with existing social problems of our society (escalation of conflicts, social isolation, violence and inequality) for further decision-making.
Camp Mascot to me is a camp that allows youth to learn how to become more active citizens with art and creativity as a way to bring awareness of important social issues and elicit change within their communities.
MASCOT is unique place for everyone to shine. I experienced it once and for 100% you will feel it the same way.
MASCOT for me is unveiling the untapped potential that exists in all of us as individuals and as a community for the betterment of ourselves and the world around us.
I believe that non-formal education is what can shape any society and bring it towards the better future. I imagine this future to be the future of equality and non-discrimination. So, I volunteer because I want to make a contribution to making such future a reality.
MASCOT - is emotions. You will never know which one you will have at the first day or at last. MASCOT - is an opportunity to stop for a minute and analyze who you are. MASCOT - is an exchanging of energy and positive vibes. MASCOT is a huge family, where everyone is ready to help and support you!
MASCOT is not an ordinary camp, trust me. It is a place full of creativity, spontaneity, freedom to express yourself and show your ideas,improvement and personal growth. Everyone will live unforgettable moments and experience here, in our huge MASCOT family.
I believe everyone has an inner artist voice that deserves to be let loose on the world! It is camps like this that empower youth to use that voice to learn about themselves and the world around them.
