The program mission
is to help each child take charge of their life and understand that they have choices and opportunities that do not depend on where they were born or what school they attend. The program participants come up with a number of useful initiatives that address the challenges of the environment in which they work. The following projects were launched since the program’s inception: Equally Different (a social adaptation program for children with a foreign language background), (V)meste (play on words – together, or in [a] place. A school space transformation project), Online School (a distance education project), Support School (a school social and psychological service transformation project), Principal for Russia (a management track for teachers who become principals and deputy principals at schools), and many other smaller initiatives that help children grow, realize their dreams, and use their potential for their own development. After two years of teaching, 90% of the program graduates choose to remain in education, facilitating the development of the educational system by applying their knowledge and skills in projects and at institutions.
