The International Youth Forum ‘Eurasia Global’ has a large and friendly family of volunteers. One of the members of this family is Nikolai Samarkin, master graduate of Penza State University in the field of Law. His hometown is Ulyanovsk. Last year, he was a participant of the ‘Eurasia Global’ Forum, where he won a grant of 100 thousand rubles for his social project “Soldier of the Great Patriotic War”. It is to create an Internet based encyclopedia of life stories, letters from veterans to perpetuate the memory of participants in the Great Patriotic War.
“This year I decided to take part as a volunteer and was chosen on a business program in the Grants division. We help not only experts, but also participants: for example, to make an appointment for a consultation, answer questions, share experience in participating the competition, and all in all to win the coveted grant. I have experience to share. Volunteering is not new for me: at the Territory of Meanings forum I participated as a curator. In addition, in our region with a team of like-minded people, we are implementing several projects where we also are volunteering”, – says Nikolai.
He claims, that he takes great pleasure from social designing. That is how Nikolai realizes himself in life. He takes an active part in the youth policy of his region and organizes volunteer work.
