Since 2021, the Roscongress Foundation's socially oriented School Friend project has been helping troubled children and teenagers master the school curriculum and socialize. Since its inception, more than 3,000 hours of classes have been held, while the geography of the project covers more than 20 regions of the Russian Federation.

University students and teachers from different regions of the Russian Federation volunteer to help children and adolescents improve their academic performance in general education, successfully pass their final exams in school, decide on the choice of profession, and adapt to the social environment.

22 August 2022 in cooperation with the Interregional Contact Centre, the School Friend social project launched a hotline, through which you can apply to either give or receive help.

“School Friend has an important mission: let children and teenagers know that are not alone with their problems. The result we have achieved together with our volunteers in such a short period of time gives us hope for the successful implementation of our ambitious plans at the federal level. The launch of the hotline is an important step in the project's development, allowing us to provide information and increase our outreach to those who need our help. We are creating a space of kindness and dialogue,” said Ilya Gulidin, head of the Social Projects Department of the Roscongress Foundation's Directorate for Work with Participants.

The project is very important for social development, as children and adolescents who have received knowledge, support, and assistance from volunteers will be able to build a successful career and financial independence in the modern world.

Monday to Friday from 9:00 to 18:00 hotline operators will receive calls from all over Russia. Children, parents, and volunteers will get all the necessary information about the project, will have a chance to leave an application for participation and ask questions. The hotline will help increase the reach of beneficiaries throughout the Russian Federation.
