WHAT WE OFFER
OUR UK PROGRAMMES
Through our regular meetings, CYM GB offers a multi-faceted programme including various cultural activities, educational activities, field trips, sports, special interest groups and a summer camp programme.
Our programmes are available in both Ukrainian and English, open and tailored to all ages!
Organise, Nurture and Educate youth in the spirit invoked by the ideals "God and Ukraine"
Culture defines people's values, beliefs, and personal interests. Culture is important because it allows people to maintain a unique identity in society.
Through our cultural programme we:
Celebrate and teach Traditional Ukraine Dancing, through our 8 Dance Groups locally, to allow our members can share and highlight this on a public stage.
Teach the uniqueness of Ukrainian Songs to our members, revealing Ukraines history and promising future.
Share talents through music performances and classes offered at some local branches.
Maintain ancient Ukrainian Traditions through arts and craft like Ukrainian Easter egg writing and embroidery.
Celebrate the richness of Ukrainian Cuisine through cooking classes.
Aspects from our Cultural Programme can be seen at our National Rally.
Education provides knowledge and skills to our youth and the opportunity to reach goals and the learning of norms in society.
Our Educational Programme is delivered in a variety of formats including formal lessons, games, workshops and nature walks.
Through our educational programme we:
Teach Ukrainian History (up to the present day) to help our members understand and grapple with the complex questions and dilemmas that have shaped Ukraine's important position in the present day.
Showcase Ukrainian Literature and the famous figures that shaped the Ukrainian Language, allowing our members to step back in time and learn about how they lived and understand the feelings of those generations.
