If I had to give parents one piece of advice, it would definitely be: 🌺Encourage your children to volunteer🌺 . Why? Because almost every soft skill that I have today was in some shape of form created or grown by my different volunteer work experiece. . 1. I learned to be communicative. 2. Networking and public speaking became less & less stressful and more & more enjoyable. 3. Gained so much knowledge about art, film, theatre an other industries. . All in all, I believe that volunteering is one of the best ways to grow as a human being and learn about others.

In March 10th, 1876, Mr Alexander Graham Bel, an inventor of the telephone, made the first call and uttered his famous phrase: “Mr. Watson, come on. I want to see you." Exactly after 140 years 3 months and 13 days, or in June 22nd, 2016, when 77-year-old Ms. Angelė answered the phone call, nobody asked her to go anywhere. Just engage into friendly conversation. This is how “Sidabrinė linija" - the free of charge befriending and support helpline for the elderly - was started 4 years ago. Today we serve more than 3000 old age people providing them with information, friendship and advise, have “an army” of 500+ volunteers, they all together have already had and enjoyed more than 52k calls lasting 1100k minutes. Let’s celebrate this festive day together!

I am so happy to hear that Esther Duflo, her husband Abhijit Banerjee and Michael Kremer were awarded with Economics Nobel prize for their great work in fighting poverty. This award is even more special because Prof Duflo is only the 2nd woman and the youngest among both male and female winners. Esther Duflo and Abhijit Banerjee are also the authors of the well recognized book “Poor Economics”, which served as a great guide and inspiration during my volunteering time in Uganda with women groups. I would highly recommend to read the book for everyone who is interested to understand how poor think and what methods work.

Facilitation methods and techniques 🙋🏻 I used to volunteer for Erasmus student network and mentor foreign students in Vilnius. That experience brought a lot of great things to me. During that time I started to organize mentors, have bigger meetings and deliver workshops. I wanted to present a technique to plan a meeting/workshop that I still remember. It is called NAOMIE that is why it is so easy to remember it 😅 Whole great explanation of this technique is down below taken from OBESSU Toolbox. My two cents here - imagine if a responsible person would come to any work meeting, brainstorm or planning session prepared like this 😍 would meetings be more or less productive? Great preparation requires time and sometimes people do not understanding value of preparation and importance of planning, so I am still doubting how to use such knowledge in real life (or work) situations ✌️
