Regional volunteer training centre for SCO and BRICS summits to be set up in South Urals

A regional volunteer centre will open in Chelyabinsk in autumn 2019 and serve as the main platform for the work and training of the volunteer corps for international events in 2020.

The South Urals Association of Volunteers initiated the establishment of the regional centre and the idea received support from Chelyabinsk Region Governor Boris Dubrovsky. A presidential grant worth RUB 1.7 million was also received for the project.

The site is expected to become a co-working space with a modern conference hall, work areas, a media centre as well as a place for volunteers at international events to interact, train, and relax. A loft will also be available for youth projects.

The volunteer centre will be located at 73, Ulitsa Engelsa. The space is currently being planned and organized, and in autumn of 2019 the centre will be equipped, training methods will be developed, and working personnel will be invited to provide information and methodological support to volunteers as well as advise them and help them prepare for events.

Similar centres will also be set up at major educational organizations and in other cities of the region. Such premises will be used by South Ural State University students. The initiative to create this centre received funding as part of a grant competition from the Federal Agency for Youth Affairs. The centre is equipped with a lecture area for 100 people as well as a platform with workspaces equipped with the necessary equipment.

The SCO and BRICS summits will be held in July 2020 in Chelyabinsk. Approximately 750 volunteers will start being recruited in February 2019 in order to help the event organizers.
