‘A Future with Confidence’ Project Starts a New Season

04 October 2016

On 4 October 2016, the Art, Science and Sport Charity Foundation launched a webinar-opening dedicated to the start of the 2016/2017 season of the project, ‘A Future with Confidence.’

The meeting was dedicated to the start of the new academic year and a discussion of the plans for the upcoming season, as well as an overview of the functions of the www.tomyfuture.ru website and its technical capabilities.

One of the innovations of the upcoming season will be the introduction of mentors, or helpers, to the regions. It is these helpers—chosen from among instructors and proactive students from pedagogical universities—who will now be in charge of the entire working process ‘on location.’ They will: help participants in the project to grasp the key points of webinars, explain teaching materials, and discuss any problems encountered by the lecturers during their events. The new system is currently working as a beta-version in two cities: Stary Oskol and Vladikavkaz. The plan is to include the rest of the project’s cities in the beta-version of the system within a year.

The most important event of the new season will be a thematic meeting dedicated to film which will take place in Spring 2017. During the event, a film will be shot in which the main protagonists will be the attending children themselves.

The traditional program of captivating meetings with leading Russian experts will continue throughout the year for participants of the project. Invited experts will include famous actors and directors, athletes, journalists, scientists, and travellers. Special attention in the preparation for the new season will be given to identifying interesting lecturers who have significant experience in their respective professions.

‘A Future with Confidence’ was created by the Arts, Science and Sport Charity Foundation in 2013 with the goal of helping the social adjustment of teenagers who find themselves in difficult life circumstances. Currently, the project unites more than 200 children from 20 social services institutions in 12 regions of the Russian Federation.
