Since 2008 Perspective Camps (Перспектива) have been uniting volunteers from Russia and abroad in their sincere desire to help local communities of Yaroslavl Region in renovating social infrastructure. Over the last years the volunteers have renovated schools, kindergartens, orphanages, elderly people’s apartments, parks (for the 1000 anniversary of Yaroslavl), monuments, churches and social rehabilitation centers. This year you will continue this work in Pereslavl-Zalessky, together with a group of Russian volunteers. You will participate in such activities as repairing social objects (museums, houses-boarding schools, schools e.t.c.) and monuments of architecture. You will work 6 hours a day (with a lunch-break), 6 days a week.

Locatie en vrije tijd
Pereslavl-Zalessky is located 140 km from Moscow, on the banks of Lake Pleshcheyev, at the confluence of the Trubezh River. This camp is a great opportunity to visit one of the oldest cities in Central Russia. This city was founded by Prince Yuri Dolgoruky in 1152. An outstanding statesman and commander Alexander Nevsky was born, lived and reigned here. At the end of the 17th century, near Pereslavl, on the shore of Lake Pleshcheyev, the young Tsar Peter I began the construction of the so-called "amusing flotilla" that laid the foundation for the Russian navy.
Entertainment and competitions will be held for participants in the evenings. You can swim in the river. Days off are the time for excursions, picnics and free time activities. Volunteers may enjoy hiking around the area with a lot of museums and beautiful nature. The trip to Yaroslavl – the centre of region and one of the oldest and most beautiful cities of the “Golden Ring” of Russia will be organized.
A short course of Russian will be provided. It includes 15 hours of classes, 3 hours of practical usage (field trips) and 2 hours of guided but real communication with participants from Russia almost every evening (20 hours in total). The course covers basic grammar and such topics as personal information, likes and dislikes, daily life, food, shopping, weather, illnesses, clothes.
