LIFE OF YOUTH IN UKRAINE
Life of youth in Ukraine is determined by the economic, social, and political situation of the country. The economic crisis in Ukraine has led to unemployment, especially of youth. As a result of it the criminal situation has immensely changed for the worse. That's why Ukrainian government took special measures for the foundation of youth organisations in Ukraine. And such organisations have been found. They are, the Students' League, Young Socialists, Green Peace, The League of Ukrainian Youth, Sokil, Ukrainian Youth Environmental League, Youth Congress of Ukrainian Nationalists, Eastern-Ukrainian Union ofYouth Organisations (VUSMO), Ukrainian Scouts and various youth clubs which unite young people according to their interests.
The Students' League is aimed at solving various students' problems, including economic ones. The members of this league organise youth forums, festivals, and group meetings. This organisation also maintains friendly ties with the universities and colleges of such countries as the USA, Great Britain, France, Germany and Holland. These ties include students' exchanges on educational and cultural programmes.
Young Socialists is the organisation of young people who share the views of socialism. They participate in the movement of socialist organisations abroad and support the policy pursued by the Socialist Party of Ukraine.
A lot of young people in Ukraine are active in the movement of "the greens". They organise various actions of protest against the pollution of environment. The members of the Green Peace organisation stand for preserving safe environment. They fight against the destruction of flora and fauna on the Earth.
The League of Ukrainian Youth was founded at the end of 1990 by students and teachers who had taken part in protest demonstrations and a hunger strike in Kyiv earlier in the fall. It was organised for the "development of democracy and realisation of human rights in Ukraine; to support Ukrainian education; and to draw youth into scientific work."
The league organises conferences and summer camps on such topics as history, politics, philosophy, folklore, etc.
Sokil is Youth Organisation of Union of Ukrainian Officers. It is a labour and professional organisation aimed at Ukrainian youth.
Ukrainian Youth Environmental League was established in 1993. It promotes biodiversity protection and technology for "environmentally clean" products and runs education projects to involve youth in the environmental movement.
Youth Congress of Ukrainian Nationalists YCUN works to facilitate the "consolidation of Ukrainian patriotic youth organisations." The organisation was formed in June 1998.
Eastern-Ukrainian Union of Youth Organizations SUSMO is a consortium of 26 organisations of various types, including youth and children's organisations, youth political parties and non-governmental organisations working in the educational, cultural and other fields.
Scouting in Ukraine was started in 1911, under the name Plast (a direct translation of the word scouting). The renewing of this most worthwhile youth movement happened in 1991, when Ukraine became independent. Ukraine needs Scouting to educate its young people in the spirit of good citizenship, leadership, and to foster civil initiative.
Youth clubs of different interests have come into being these days. They unite music fans, sports fans, theatregoers and others. Besides, there is the "All-Ukrainian Association of Young Businessmen", who try to find their own way of raising the country out of the economic crisis.
