29.04.2011 | Access Program Students from Ozurgeti Get Inspired to Become Volunteers and Active Citizens

On April 29, US Peace Corps volunteers Erin Hardesty and Emily Height organized an enrichment activity on volunteerism and active citizenship for Ozurgeti Access Program students. During the session, the volunteers spoke about the history and importance of volunteerism in the USA. Students generated ideas on the ways and opportunities of the youth engagement in volunteer activities in rural settings of Guria. The PCVs showed short videos on volunteerism, which were later discussed by the students. The entire session was very interactive. According to the students, the Peace Corps Volunteers inspired them with the ideas of volunteerism and gave them what to think about during summer vacations.
