During the pandemic, most of the city’s programs targeting Muscovites aged 16 to 30 went online. And now on the Internet you can find not only free sports intensives, but even a dream job.

In March 2020, the Moscow Committee for Public Relations and Youth Policy launched the Moscow Youth project office, which studies the needs of people aged 16 to 30 and implements projects for them. Over the past year, more than 200 thousand people took part in them, and the coverage of views of online events in social networks exceeded 50 million. Read about the most popular projects in the article.

“Moscow Dialogue”

The Moscow Dialogue is an educational platform where meetings with famous figures in the field of journalism, art, business, and politics are held. At the events, students gain practical skills in public speaking, time management, business planning, learn how to increase personal effectiveness and achieve their goals. In 2020, more than 100 such meetings took place, and broadcasts on social networks were viewed more than five million times.

More than 10 thousand students from 30 Moscow universities became active participants in the project. According to the organizers, in the new year it is planned to officially open the Moscow Dialogue student clubs at universities.


The CyberMoscow project is aimed at training in the field of information security and IT technologies. Within its framework, methods and methods are developed to counter cybercriminals on the Internet. Master classes are regularly held, where specialists demonstrate on the screen situations in real time when attackers gain access to personal personal data. More than 95 thousand people took part in the project’s online and offline events, the coverage of the target audience on the Internet was 210 thousand users.

“Several times I was a victim of scammers on the Internet – they debited funds from my bank card, so I decided to watch educational trainings from CyberMoscow. I learned which SMS messages cannot be answered and how, by scanning the QR code, you can give access to your bank account. The advice from the project team helped me keep my personal data safe. Thanks to the knowledge I have gained, I am armed and I hope that I will no longer get into unpleasant stories, ”says Arina Mokherina, student of the Russian State University named after A.N. Kosygin.

“Student League Stand-Up”

Student League Stand-Up is an educational platform for aspiring comedians. The program of events includes intensives, master classes of professional stand-up artists and open microphones, when any student can perform with his humorous monologue.

After training, the guys go from intra-university stand-up tournaments to performances on the big stage. And here are the first results: over the past year, two seasons of the student league took place in offline and online formats, which were watched by more than 50 thousand people.

The online marathon “Tournament of all tournaments” was also launched on the social networks of the project, during which the participants gradually came up with improvisational jokes on the given topics and posted them on their pages. As a result, the best participants receive certificates for training at the Moscow stand-up school.

“In fact, all the work of our league is to promote talented students. Many of the participating guys successfully perform in stand-up clubs, television and YouTube shows. Our experts help them to take their first steps and write monologues with which they can go to any auditions in the future, ”notes Oksana Yakovleva, head of the Student League Stand-Up project.

In 2021, the project team plans to organize an off-site stand-up festival, open a new branch “Stand-Up Improvisation” and a new division for the best participants.

“In the area”

The project “On the District” is dedicated to the underground, street subculture and sports. Today, the youth of the capital, without leaving their homes, can participate in competitions in such areas as rap battles, street dance and e-sports. This happens with the help of online broadcasts and master classes. Broadcasts of events within the framework of the project “On the District” gained more than seven million views on social networks.

In addition, in the summer of 2020, during the partial lifting of restrictions due to the coronavirus, 12 offline events were held, in which 600 people took part. Among them – competitions in martial arts and street football, which took place in different parts of Moscow.

Also in the summer, a breaking tournament (break dance competition) was held in Gorky Park. Anyone could compete in a choreographic knockout battle. Famous street dancers became members of the jury.

“Our task is to fill the districts of the capital with progressive high-quality youth events and involve representatives of street cultures in them. The project is expected to expand in 2021. We have planned to conduct online and offline contests and trainings, but at the international level. A festival of extreme sports, the Moscow Workout Cup and a large festival of youth informal cultures await us, ”said Maxim Vasiliev, head of the project“ On the District ”.

“In Work”

Thanks to the VRabot project, students and yesterday’s graduates can not only find a vacancy, but also learn how to behave correctly during an interview and write a resume competently. Also, any participant has the opportunity to undergo online training from professionals from different industries. The service allows you to choose one of four areas of employment: internship, temporary, remote or permanent work.

Over the six months of the project’s existence, more than four thousand students and graduates have responded to vacancies. The project involves both Russian and international companies – leaders in their respective industries.

This year, more than 10 thousand participants and 400 universities across Russia have joined the project, and the coverage of views on social networks has exceeded two million. In autumn, the project team held an online employment forum “Practice”, more than a thousand young people took part in it. More than 70 percent of them are interested in internships in the IT and HR areas.

The VRabote project has big plans for 2021: updating the Internet platform, educational programs with leading commercial and state companies, joint projects with career centers of Moscow universities.

According to the chairman of the Association of Students and Student Associations of Moscow, a member of the Public Chamber of Moscow and the head of the VRabote project, Amir Sarakov, it is planned to launch a “gold reserve”. It will include the top 50 students or alumni who will be employed in the desired industry within two months. All this time, specialists will train and prepare candidates for each stage of the competition. A new direction of work on career development for foreign students and people with disabilities is also envisaged.

“Thanks to the online format of work, it was possible to increase not only the number of events, but also the involvement of the capital’s youth in their participation. Youth city programs today are preparing both large online forums and daily activities on their resources – take part in them if you have not done so yet, ”advises
