It was attended by some 70 current and former project coordinators. More » The objective of the program, implemented since 2001, is to support civic initiatives fostering equal opportunities for a better start on the road to adulthood for young people from rural areas and small towns (of up to 20,000 inhabitants). That is achieved by improving their competencies and developing social skills, such as teamwork, the ability to win support for achieving one’s goals and planning various activities. Within the program, NGOs, community centers, libraries and informal groups apply for grants to finance projects stimulating the intellectual and creative aspirations of children and teenagers, developing their ability to achieve independently and realistically set goals, shaping active and open attitudes. Such projects also encourage efforts benefiting their communities and enable young people to participate in activities extending beyond the standard curricula offered by schools. In 2014, a total of 134 projects were funded within the “All-Poland Grant Competition” and the “Regional Grant Competition”. Rounding out the program are training sessions for project coordinators. The sessions deal with ways of conducting projects, particularly emphasizing the involvement of young people in the role of active creators, participants and direct implementers of an undertaking. The project coordinators can take advantage of ICT training sessions as part of the “ICT for Local Development” Program; in 2014, they were participated by 66 people. An important component of the “Equal Opportunities” Program are its Local Forums, held by organizations participating in the program. The Forums are a place for institutions and individuals involved in activities benefiting the youth in their communities to discuss the potential of the local environment as well as barriers limiting the development opportunities for young people living in small towns. In 2014, 9 forums were held with participation of 250 people. Last year, the second edition of the summer-school workshops for 24 most active project participants was held. These are meant to upgrade their skills in the implementation of initiatives serving their local communities as well as to develop their leadership skills. Those who complete the summer school are eligible to apply for grants to implement short projects benefiting their local communities. In 2014, as part of the program, a special competition was held to engage youth in undertakings commemorating the 25th anniversary of democratic transformation in Poland. 15 projects were awarded grants for the organization of competitions, festivals, exhibitions, runs, happenings, and field games. Almost 400 young people and 3,600 residents were directly engaged in them. The program’s fourteen editions resulted in the implementation of 2,233 projects involving nearly 132,000 participants (indirectly nearly 428,000 people have been involved) and stimulation as well as integration of local communities around activities benefiting children and youth. 22 publications have been issued, describing the methodology of selected model projects, which could be implemented in other parts of Poland. The publications are available at the program’s website www.rownacszanse.pl. In addition, 150 local non-governmental organizations have been established and many projects are continued after the financial support provided by the program ceases. Through the program the Foundation provides support to the “Young Explorer Clubs” initiative, which is an extension of the model project launched in 2002 by the Education Society of Kłodzko and currently implemented by the Copernicus Science Center. The goal of the “Young Explorer Clubs” is to promote interest in science among children and youth. The Clubs are based on learning through discovery and self-directed experiments with simple and easily accessible materials. Currently, 300 “Young Explorer Clubs” are in operation across Poland. Last year, the third edition of the “Young Explorer Clubs” Forum was held which gathered more than 220 people. The event was attended by representatives of the Ministry of Education, the Sejm Education and Youth Commission as well as caretakers of the clubs operating in Poland and foreign guests. The forum is the platform of contacts and exchange of experiences, serving also the promotion of Young Explorer Clubs. The Foundation has disbursed $11,377,573, including $306,755 for the current edition of the program.
