Although the calendar year is not yet over, the results of the Year of support and development of youth leads in the RB have been announced in Ufa Palace of Culture. Not only young people, but also businesspersons, heads of public organizations and local authorities including the city mayor Paul Kachkaev were present at the closing ceremony.
Decision to create Young people's initiatives Cronicles-2009 to mark the beginning of the Year of Youth was made at the gala event last year. Now looking back on the past year participants of the celebration once again recalled all the events and singled out those who distinguished themselves in different spheres of life.
So, what event of the Youth Year is the most significant? One can hardly give a definite answer to this question. Everything seems to be important.
For example, the Youth Public Chamber under Ufa City Council was founded in April of this year. It is one of the "first swallows" in development of youth parliamentarianism. Best of the Best Contest was organized among working young people of Ufa enterprises and organizations within the framework of the Year of support and development of youth leads.
Performances of the winners of city, republican and all-Russian dancing and vocal contests set the festive tone to the event. Miras Folk Dance and Song Company, the prizewinner of International festivals, Gratsiya Folk Variety Dance Company, the winner of the interregional modern choreography festival "Wind of Change", the RB honoured artist, Shaikhzada Babich Award winner Ilgam Valeev and many others were among them.
However, the climax of the evening was handing of the keys from apartments to young families, foster parents and children's home leavers.
Alexander and Natalia Chuvilin adopting three sisters were among them. The elder sister Maria is already a university student; Dasha and Lyuba go to school.
Guzel and Alfir Nasyrov also became the proud owners of an apartment. On November 26, they became the parents of triplets — Adel, Azalia and Arthur.
Apartment keys were also presented to Vadim Kazanbaev, Regina Karimova, Mikhail Nikitin and Igor Ponomarev. All of them are former inmates of children's homes.
"Being difficult enough, this year has been successful anyway," Paul Kachkaev said. "The most important thing is that we have not stopped carrying out social programs. We think and take care of the rising generation. Today we have seen the brightest moments of life of young people living in our city. All that you are doing now to lay the foundation of your future will be repaid hundredfold. Many things depend only on you now."
The Year of support and development of youth leads is coming to the end, but it does not mean that there will not be new victories, discoveries and achievements. According to young people's words, they cannot be stopped in their aspiration for the better.
