Executive Director

Nina Vorontsova
At different stages of my life I had mentors and was a
mentor myself. It’s very important to have a person
who’ll support and help you in difficult situations or
who‘ll teach you how to behave in new circumstances.
Sometimes it’s enough to be aware of having such a
person in your life to become stronger and more
self-confident. I wish everybody to find such a person
nearby when he’s necessary. I know from experience that
it’s very important! Our organization “Big Brothers Big
Sisters” is engaged in mentoring children in difficult
living situations. It’s a big deal and I’m so glad to be
part of a great professional team and to be involved in
development of mentoring.

psychotherapy”. Before joining the program, she worked in
private kindergartens. I entered the program in 2017 to the
post of curator-psychologist. While working in commercial
organizations I really missed the point in my work.
Therefore, I was looking not so much for work in NGOs as
work in which I would see the point. It’s important for me
to see that my work makes people’s lives better. For me,
work in program – work with Meaning. This is an organization
where first place is not commercial gain, but well-being
children. It’s also a very cool team of people who watch the
world is about the same as me. Inspires me the most that
someone really needs it. When baby runs up to me and asks
when will I find him mentor – this motivates the best.
