Saturn Youth Council named best association for working youth in the region

July 3, 2012, Rybinsk — NPO Saturn’s youth council has been named the best association for working youth in the region. Winners of the regional stage of the All-Russian competition for professional skills in the sphere of youth policy — 2012 and the winners of the first ever Prizma awards for service in youth policy in the Yaroslavl region were honored on Russia’s Youth Day.

Saturn’s Youth Council has worked on implementing youth policy since 2001. At present the council includes 12 members and its activities (via employees responsible for working with youth in company subdepartments) encompass nearly all company employees up to age 35. Its work is focused on four major areas.

The innovation sector of the Youth Council works on projects to train and develop company assets, offering career guidance to schoolchildren, working to develop and implement solutions to social and housing issues, implement changes and amendments to collective contracts, and works with trade unions. Training human resources, particularly those from the company’s youth assets, is also part of this area of work.

The manufacturing sector, encompassing most company employees, works on making aviation, terrestrial, and marine gas turbine engines, enabling processes of youth adaptation to the company, helping the most gifted young workers to realize their potential, including through professional skills competitions, and holds voluntary Saturday workdays and work brigades throughout the year.

The culture and sports sector is responsible for the traditional summer and winter youth rallies, intellectual games, Russian lapta tournaments, ‘rug-ball’ and other original forms of sporting competitions, creative events with youth participation, themed evenings and panel games.

The information and monitoring sector highlights the work of the Youth Council in corporate and city-wide media. It feeds back to the youth, including by conducting polls. It produces printed materials, video clips, and presentations about the Youth Council and attributes of its own symbols.

Saturn personnel director AlekseyMolchanyuk noted that “with each successful event, Saturn Youth Council grows more authoritative among company employees and at the level of youth organizations in the city and the region, as witnessed by the fully deserved award from the Yaroslavl regional government.” Saturn’s Youth Council is an active participant in competitions for the best organization working with young people, events of sporting, creative, and intellectual competition at a city, regional, and inter-regional level, such as ‘Yaroslavl region Governor’s Cup in Intellectual Games’, ‘Yaroslavl Lapta Tournament’, ‘Seliger 2008, 2010’, ‘All-Russian Forum Engineers of the Future’, youth rallies between teams of the UEC, youth rallies in the cities of Rybinsk and Yaroslavl, and many more.
