Strengthening Students’ Integration and Tolerance
"It’s the first time I’m going to become a tutor. Last year I had a tutor myself"– says a student of the one year Georgian language preparatory program, Hamia Iskandarova. "I always thought that a tutor is required to share knowledge and experience, but s/he doesn’t really get anything in return. At this training, I’ve learned that tutorship program is mutually beneficial.”
November 4-6, 2016, Ilia State University-based PITA’s Youth Centerorganized 3-day training in Telavi -"Strengthening Students’ Integration and Tolerance.” The initiative aimed at promoting integration of ethnic minority students and advancing tolerance building at HEIs.
Training was facilitated by the trainers of "Partners-Georgia” (PG). The main topics of the training were diversity management, volunteerism, dispelling stereotypes and team building.
Further, 25 participants were introduced to Ilia State University’s tutorship program, which has been successfully implemented for already six years now.
