Train the Trainer report – Czech Republic – January 2021

Beginning from 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 Czech Republic


Main Questions:

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 didn’t really work with youth, however, we tried to work with kids and it went really well. Committee for Children and Youth held the first Kids On The Air (weekend) camp.

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?
They hadn’t. In case there are only a few young ham radio operators we didn’t do anything special. Yes, we are in contact but mainly if there are things moving, it’s mainly during DYM.
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?
The tradition here in the Czech Republic is that we have been doing a small meeting during the DYM. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to do one because of the pandemic situation. Good thing is that they were some new faces calling under OL20YOTA this year.

Other Questions:

What kind of problems are you facing with youth work in your member society?
That there is a lack of young people between 15 – 25 years old. They are kinds (who hopefully will be our future youth) but not youth.
Anything else that comes to your mind or you want to share?
