19.11.2014 | global new media | A Global New Media Lab Alumni’s Drive for Social Change

Upon returning home to Liberia after studying in the U.S. and participating in PH International’s Global New Media Lab (GNML) program, Nathaniel Cooper became a leader in his community, training others how to use social media for social change.

Students at five Liberian high schools received training in social media skills, such as email, YouTube, blogging, Facebook, and Twitter, and were taught how to use these tools in a productive manner to address a specific social cause. Complementing the training in social media, youth learned the importance of integrity, how to be a leader, and the principles of public speaking.

03.11.2014 | idea | Cooperation opens new perspectives
NGO ‘Center Podillya Socium’ (Vinnytsya) actively participated in the Project since April 2014, and its key target audience was pupils and students. Center Podillya Socium actively disseminated information about the Project through the Internet, and it gave a positive effect for the further development of the organization. In September, an international media-project "Youth School of Journalism" (organized by New Media Foundation (Poland) supported a project proposal from Center Podillya Socium. Its IDEA Center Coordinator Anna Morhun said: "Our participation in IDEA Project Powered by Microsoft YouthSpark gave impetus to a successful implementation of our new initiative. Objectives of our new project are promoting youth active social life, studying youth media and how they can be created, establishing a youth editorial board for journalistic work, and production of electronic media newspapers or ‘multims’. Our target audience is 14 - 17 years old students. This way, at the basis of IDEA training center created by NGO ‘Center Podillya Socium’, school youth received an opportunity to try itself also in journalism’.

30.10.2014 | idea | Information technologies give countless opportunities for creative people
Hanna Burbela (23), a participant of trainings conducted within 2014 IDEA Project Powered by Microsoft YouthSpark in Ternopil tells: "I 've always held a deep fascination with decorative art, and I have engaged in it since I was a child. Presumably, I had no time and desire to do or study anything else. So, to my great pity, as it appeared, I did not spare the proper attention to information technologies. Once my friend told me about the work of IDEA Project Powered by Microsoft YouthSpark in our city which offers free of charge trainings in using computers and information technologies. After some time I was enrolled and started visiting some of these training sessions conducted within the project by IDEA Training Center established by NGO ’Ternopil Oblast Branch of Association of Labor Unions of Youth of Ukraine’. There, I found a lot about using IT in everyday life and met new friends and interesting people. However the most important thing was that I understood that computer technologies had made way in all spheres of life. They complement him, help in our work, and give access to information. They provide an enormous amount of possibilities about which I did not even guess! As a result of my study, I created a group in a social network where I place pictures of my art wares and sell them people from all corners of Ukraine. I became an active participant of forums at which people as me share their «professional secrets». I got possibility to find and watch videos about creation of decorative wares and read articles about it. So I am very thankful to the project for such a great opportunity!"

15.10.2014 | idea | Training helped to organize a civic organization
Olha Shevchuk, IDEA Center Coordinator at Women's NGO "Zakhyst” (Protection) shared a successful undertaking of one of the project training participants: "Anna Kravchuk (22) recently took trainings within IDEA Project Powered by Microsoft YouthSpark, and it really helped her in establishing a new NGO called "Light of Hope". Anna and her colleagues organized this NGO to realize their potential at the social services market in our city. They conducted a preliminary study to find their niche and decided to focus on "difficult" teenagers. Now they are negotiating with a police unit responsible for children’s issues for conducting volunteering workshops for teens prone to disturbance of public order. We hope that with eventually gaining a positive experience and advised by experienced law experts, our graduates will successfully organize provision of legal assistance to these children. This will greatly help children with psychological support and social adaptation."
