About Centre

Founded in 1970 as the Palace of PIONEERS (at that time the state centers for non-formal education) in Soviet times, the organization was later incorporated into the Regional center for children and youth.

The center is an organization that brings together units working with children and youth in the Yaroslavl region, helping children and families to consider how best to balance the development of children through the experience of non-formal learning outside the classroom.

One of the objectives is to strengthen strategic partnerships between research and training services and practical courses that are held daily with children and young people, providing different ways of doing so.

Children and young people realize and realize their potential through participation in regional, national and / or international competitions, festivals, forums and conferences. There are six children's associations that have received the title of "Exemplary children's team".

Employees and students are pleased to become an integral part of the cooperation of joint programs with more than 570 organizations and agencies in the Yaroslavl region, Russia, CIS and foreign institutions.

In 2011, the Regional center for children and youth was awarded the "Best for children"quality mark. The center continues to work hard for its development: it won the prize "100 best enterprises and organizations of Russia 2014", the Center also became the "best informal organization of education for children" winner of the Russian Federation in 2015.
