Webinar with Theatre and Cinema Actress Nonna Grishayeva
Nonna is not only the public favourite but also the Honored Artist of the Russian Federation, the presenter of the TV shows “Look the Same” and “Two Stars”. Since 2014, the actress works in the position of the artistic director of the Moscow Regional Youth Theatre and continues to act in movies.
Our star lecturer Nonna Grishaeva commented on the aspects of choosing a future profession, “A child should be very responsible in choosing his or her future path, and the parents should listen and help. If you have no parents, you need to take this responsibility on yourself. Recall what you are interested in to understand in which direction to go. If you take a wrong path, you will suffer for all your life for being engaged in unloved activities. Therefore, choose only what you enjoy.”
The project “To My Future” has been implemented by the “Art, Science and Sport” Charity Foundation since 2013, and it prepares teenagers, who find themselves in a difficult life situation, for independent living and choosing a profession. In 2018, the charity project celebrates its fifth anniversary.
Project activities are divided into three areas:
- Conducting online webinars in orphanages throughout Russia (2 webinars per week annually from October to May)
- Organization of off-site events for the most active participants of webinars (2 times a year, 100 teenagers participate in each event)
- Mentoring as active work with students of pedagogical universities and volunteer organizations
In 2016, the project “To My Future” was awarded a diploma of the 4th Annual Program “The Best Social Projects of Russia” of the “Social Projects” Foundation in the nomination “Projects in Support of Socially Vulnerable People”.
