Representatives of public organizations held the meeting with students of Yamal polar agro-economical technical school in a choum. (The note: a choum is home of nomads, reindeer herders; it is similar to a tepee). The students study on specializations “veterinary medicine” and “reindeer herders-mechanizers”.
The students tasted dishes of ethnic cuisine of indigenous ethnic minorities of the North and spoke with the owners of the choum and the representatives of the public organizations about significance of a reindeer in life of nomads. The executive director of the Union of reindeer herders of Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug Timur Akchurin told them about existing measures for support of farmers in the Autonomous Okrug, about actions and projects being implemented by the public organizations.
“We discussed ideas that the young people wanted to implement in the future and consulted them on preparation of business projects necessary for participation in “The school of young entrepreneurs”, Timur Akchurin said to a correspondent of the news agency “Sever-Press”. He hopes that the conversations will lead the young people to the idea of opening of their own business, which may begin their road to life”.
Next time students of Yamal Multidisciplinary College plan to visit the choum. It is planned to make such meetings regular; they are organized within the pilot project “Mentoring of future leaders”.
As it should be reminded, the project is implemented by the Union of reindeer herders of Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug and the regional branch of the All-Russian council of local self-government. The students are taught to basics of office work, skills of reception of citizens with the opportunity to participate in law-making activity, preparation of business plans and social projects.
The public organizations intend to involve them in their actions, projects and public life of the Autonomous Okrug for receiving of new knowledge, skills of public speaking and forming of their leadership skills.
