MASCOT is a one week English camp for active young Ukrainians where we develop teamwork skills and expand knowledge on project management, emotional intelligence, conflict resolution etc. by using the means of non-formal education.
MASCOT raises awareness of crucial topics: equality, bullying, mental health, environmental issues, media literacy.
MASCOT - is a team of Ukrainian volunteers who create an inclusive and playful atmosphere for education.
MASCOT develops talents of our campers through extracurricular activities in music, theater, painting and other forms of art.
MASCOT is all about PEOPLE.
MASCOT works for proactive young Ukrainians aged 16-20 who are interested in developing skills in teamwork, personal leadership, and creative abilities; gaining tools for creating their own social projects, regardless of their socio-economic status or religion.
Every year the MASCOT team implements a final social project. This year we are focusing on 3 main aspects: art, social issues and personal development. Thus, the participants learn how art can be a powerful tool for generating positive change while also improving their soft skills. In the end, they can use gained knowledge and experiences to make a real change.
Besides, in consideration of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we focus a lot on ensuring a safe and healthy environment for the participants in MASCOT.
MASCOT offers creative freedom, a supportive community of changemakers, and a safe place to learn and become a better version of yourself. So to me MASCOT is also about inspiration and the empowerment it gives to whomever decides to join :)
MASCOT is all about boring lectures, unbearable people and wasted time...SIKE! Now replace every negative adjective with such words as “MIND-BLOWING”, “EXTRAORDINARY” and “SPLENDID”. You are so lucky to be a part of this year MASCOT family!! Let’s create the time of our lives together!
For me, MASCOT is about people, about bringing them together. It creates a place to share values and ideas, to get creative and motivated for a long period of time. MASCOT is about being who you are and developing yourself.
I perceive MASCOT as the safe zone for being yourself, expressing your creativity and make the inner change that motivates you and others to make outer change. So be ready that everyone in the camp is for you and enjoy this MIND-BLOWING experience.
I consider Mascot a place, where your soul gets filled up with milk and honey of motivation!
I consider MASCOT to be an invaluable chance for me to grow as well as encourage others to improve themselves. MASCOT is to accept and to be accepted: It's a unique time to share your past experiences and create new ones, make unforgettable acquaintances which will last throughout life. Once, a summer camp became a milestone for me, this year it might be yours!
MASCOT first of all is all about community and unity. It’s unbelievable how many people from different parts of Ukraine become a family in one week.
I am proud of being who I am now. And I am thankful for MASCOT to show me that it is normal to be yourself. I cannot even imagine my life without this community. MASCOT saved me and I want to do the same for people here.
I am very pleased that I was a part of this camp! It changed my outlook on life, made me self-confident and more active person!
MASCOT for me is a place where I discovered a great number of wonderful people, a place that in 9 days became dear to my heart.
First of all, MASCOT gave me new friends (and not merely boilerplate expression, I really found a like-minded friends), deprived me of many complexes to account myself, and broadened my outlook.
MASCOT provided an unforgettable experience every time I have been there as a camper, as a staff, as a director. It showed me, that there is so much more in life, the opportunities are truly endless.
People in the camp MASCOT are incredible. They are all so special. Each one has a hobby, each one is a leader! We do create a different atmosphere which cannot be found anywhere else! MASCOT is like an island where live the best people!
Participation in MASCOT gave even more than 10 best days of summer, 70 best people and 20 interesting lectures. MASCOT gave me a great motivation - motivation to change society in which you are living
MASCOT is something that will stay with you forever. Once you are a camper, you will be a camper forever.
Currently I share my whole life into two periods: before and after the MASCOT. My world turned upside down in one week.
While coming to camp MASCOT I was ready for crazy emotions, new knowledge and meeting people who are insanely passionate about what they're doing and I got all of it! So if you are looking for a place where every new day you will feel yourself the happiest person in the world - you've definitely just found one.
