TUMO KYIV IN ONLINE MODE
We teach creative technologies to teenagers from Ukraine
TUMO Kyiv in ONLINE mode is working for one month. And it means a lot for our students! Let's share some facts:
- 98% of signup students attend their classes at TUMO Kyiv in ONLINE mode
- The students' studying progress is at the same level as during offline education
- Students want to learn more from every class and literally don't let the workshop leaders finish the lessons on time
Anybody can be specific and obvious. That's always been the easy way. It's not that it's so difficult to be unspecific and less obvious; it's just that there's nothing, absolutely nothing, to be specific and obvious about.

THE INFLUENCE OF WAR IN UKRAINE

NADIYA KUZMYCHOVA, CEO OF TUMO KYIV
The team of TUMO Kyiv in ONLINE mode consists of motivated and inspired people. They have made contributed to the projects even before we got first financial support!
Oleksandr Yevtushenko
workshop leader of Film Production
This project is important because of its openness and the opportunity to communicate with teenagers on an equal basis. I am able to adapt the program to teens' interests and improve everything I want. It gives me the opportunity to reveal really important features of the profession and show children the important keys they will need in the future. Most of TUMO's teachers are not only theorists, but also practitioners. The main advantage of my work with teens is possibility to show them the projects I personally worked on: telling the entire history of production from pre-production, filming and post-production. It fascinates them the most!
Dmytro Babenko
life coach
TUMO Kyiv is a place where you feel free and responsible at the same time. This atmosphere of freedom and personal choice is very important for every teenager today. Everyone here regardless of age learns something new and I am not the exception. In just one year of working at the center I personally learned a huge amount of important information and upgrade my skills. It helped me in my developing in the technologies world. The friendship atmosphere prevails in the center and it is transmitted to everyone. We have to build our future and our future is on these young talents. Thanks TUMO for the opportunities!
Oleksandra Lunyova
coach of Music Production
What I like most about Tumo is the focus on the combination of different creative directions. It allows teenagers (who often say they can't find themselves) to broaden their horizons and think more boldly. After all, the future lies in the combination of professions: the more non-standard solutions and combinations you can find, the better. Another reason (perhaps the most important) that I want the project to grow is that TUMO is a great networking exercise. Students have access to 8 creative directions, which they can not only try personally, but also in which they can find a partner and make a project together. In today's world, in which we are so rapidly losing sociality, this is probably the most valuable.
WHY IS ONLINE FORMAT SO IMPORTANT?
TUMO provides a unique approach to the education for Ukrainian teenagers. A mix of the cutting-edge creative directions, a complex of necessary skills in modern industries and the development of soft skills;
Our online of education of the future professions is free of charge for Ukrainian teenagers;

The connection with homes and friends, regardless of where Ukrainian teenagers are physically now.
THE COLLAPSE OF EDUCATION IS THE COLLAPSE OF NATION
The famous statement of Nelson Mandela is displayed at the entrance of the University of South AfricaThe connection with homes and friends, regardless of where Ukrainian teenagers are physically now.
The high-quality educational product on the mother tongue lets the Ukrainian teenagers save their national identity and be the part of global creative world at the same time.
