In 2021 there are some changes to Train the Trainer reports. The biggest of them being that the participating countries are from now on asked direct questions in order to make answering the report easier. The answers in this particular report are from member(s) of YOTA team Algeria.
How was the last summer in your country when it comes to youth work within ham radio? Did you come up with any new exciting ideas?
We are currently trying the improve upon the skills of our youth, from ham operations to general technical knowledge (Electronics, Math, Physics…)
How have your activities changed in the past six months? Have you been able to hold e.g. online events or activities within a smaller group of people?
We had video conference calls with online courses as well as preparing for the certification exam online.
What kind of activities and operating possibilities did you have during the recent December YOTA Month? How did your activities differ from last year, and how did people respond to them?
It was quite a disastre as most radio clubs in Algeria were closed most of the time. We could however manage remote operation on the stations.
What kind of problems are you facing with youth work in your member society?
Youngsters are really busy with their studies as there was a huge delay to start courses. Thus, they do not have time for a hobby these days.
Anything else that comes to your mind or you want to share?
Try and focus on the aspect of HamRadio that is of interest for the particular group of youngsters. Some might be more interested by data encoding than by radio operation. Diversity is a blessing!
