Partnership funds are needed to publish a children's book, Art Recipes: Practical Creative Ideas for Making Art". It is written in Ukrainian and English and 1,000 copies will be printed in each language. NGO Nadiya, a local non-profit that operates as a study-rehabilitation center for children with Down's Syndrome and Autism, will help distribute the books to major Ukrainian <span class="plainlinks">[http://ibsdietplan.org <span style="color:black;font-weight:normal;text-decoration:none!important;background:none!important; text-decoration:none;">ibs</span>]</span> cities. The idea for the Art Recipes book was born from activities conducted in art classes at NGO Nadiya which lacked educational resources. A Peace Corps Volunteer working with the children utilized readily available items such as trash, dough, pasta, and vegetables to develop creative teaching tools. In February of this year, an art exhibition was held to showcase the children's work, including paintings, 150 pieces of glazed ceramics, and miscellaneous art work. Other educators expressed an interest in learning these new techniques. The book is laid out like a cookbook - what you need to do the project and simple directions of how to do it. Pictures help facilitate a better understanding of how to create these works of art.

The aim of this project is to prepare young people to search for and obtain better jobs by providing them with strong computer skills. Participants live in a Ukranian city that lacks employment opportunities. Most students attend classes through the 9th grade and further educational opportunites are limited to the community's technical school. Learning computer and job-seeking skills is therefore extremely important.

Development of computer skills and the ability to search for jobs will have a positive impact on the unemployment situation and future lives of youth in this city. Unemployment for youth is a serious problem, especially in outlying or rural areas. If this project is not implemented, many more young people will lack the skills necessary to enter today's high technology work environment.

The community contribution to this project includes a resource center facility and furniture, four of the ten computers needed, trained staff and ongoing training of students and instructors to ensure the program's sustainability.

The aim of this project is to prepare young people to search for and obtain better jobs by providing them with strong computer skills. Participants live in a Ukranian city that lacks employment opportunities. Most students attend classes through the 9th grade and further educational opportunites are limited to the community's technical school. Learning computer and job-seeking skills is therefore extremely important.

Development of computer skills and the ability to search for jobs will have a positive impact on the unemployment situation and future lives of youth in this city. Unemployment for youth is a serious problem, especially in outlying or rural areas. If this project is not implemented, many more young people will lack the skills necessary to enter today's high technology work environment.

The community contribution to this project includes a resource center facility and furniture, four of the ten computers needed, trained staff and ongoing training of students and instructors to ensure the program's sustainability.
