About this grant
The program goal is to promote youth volunteerism and community service in Russia. The Constructive Approach Foundation develops, implements, and supports programs that increase the involvement of youth in civic activity to address social issues in their communities. Over the next two years, the grantee will promote the integration of youth community service in education, the expansion of regional youth volunteer centers, and the development of social partnerships to provide greater opportunities for youth service learning. This service learning model of youth engagement has been adopted by 24 educational institutions, while educational authorities in six Russian regions have committed to supporting further implementation of this approach. Established in 2000, the Constructive Approach Foundation provides technical, methodological, informational, and financial support to develop and implement innovative approaches to promoting youth community engagement at both the practical and policy levels.
