March 2018 saw another great achievement for Youth Star Cambodia, with 6 volunteers successfully recruited, and joined Pre-Departure Training (PDT) from 05 to 16 March 2018 at the Youth Star office. Our new volunteer comprise of 5 females and one male.
Pre-departure training is a crucial period for equipping volunteers with the skills and confidence they need before heading to their communities. It covers areas such as community mobilizing, leadership, conflict solving, communication and networking. A session on management and report writing is built in to ensure the volunteers will provide effective feedback on their work in the community. We also invited our partner organization, Sipar, to provide training on monitoring a tutoring class, public reading class for children in the community in order to improve their
reading skill and habit.
Upon completing training Youth Star Cambodia held a closing ceremony to celebrate their success and commitment prior to taking up placements in Prey Veng Province.
