What does it mean to be a volunteer? Is it important to help people in our communities who are in need of assistance even if we don’t know them? Or is it more important to put ourselves and our own well-being first? Does volunteering help our societies or is it a waste of time? Community service is an important part of civil society in both the United States and Ukraine. We will discuss what role it should play in our lives, the impact it has on our communities, and what it means to participate in volunteer activities at this week’s Wednesday English @ America House! Come with an open mind and a willingness to engage in some lively discussion this Wednesday at 7 PM! Your host for the evening is Fulbright Student Benjamin Cohen.
At the end of the English Club at 20:15 pm at America House is the first presentation of the art:optimism: project in Kyiv. For one week from February 15 till February 22 America House hosts an interactive installation in order to reconsider “optimism” in Ukrainian society and inspire people towards a positive world perception. Visitors will have an opportunity to become an owner of New York MetroCard with a single printed word “optimism”. These cards today are very rare and are recognized as artworks created by Reed Seifer, an American artist with Ukrainian roots.
As always, don’t forget a passport or driver’s license! See you then!
More info coming soon!
