Description of the project

Youth Empowered is a comprehensive support program for orphans, implemented together with Coca-Cola Beverages Ukraine. We help children choose a future field of work or profession, encourage them to study, inspire them to dream, evaluate their abilities, and have self-confidence.

Youth Empowered program was started in 2015 in 1 orphanage at Donetsk region called “Emerald City”. Today this program works in 15 orphanages, 8 regions and involves 1200 students.

There are main activities we provide children in orphanages with:

  1. Motivational trainings on education, opportunities, resources, trades and professions for such children.
  2. We open computer classes with the Internet access at orphanages. Now it is possible for us to work with children online and for them to have access to our online programs.
  3. We provide every student with a Magellano Professional Guidance Test, which is a professional tool for identifying the strengths and aptitudes of the students and helping them decide on the future profession.

We provide every student with an access to our online platform iLearn that contains online courses and webinars on main school subjects. Thanks to this program, the participants of previous years are studying at the best Ukrainian universities and receive the state scholarship.

Our main achievement  - an increase in the entry of orphans into universities.

To remind, according to statistics, only 10% of orphanage graduates enter university (CEDOS analytics (Center for Society Research, 2016-17)) and have a chance for better life. Among the participants of our Youth development program, this figure is 76% in 2017 and 85% in 2018.
