Project Schedule
Project Schedule
Day 1: Project launch date
We recommend that you arrive in our city of Irkutsk at least one day before the start of this project.

On the first day we will meet at 9.00AM at our GBT city office, and will introduce everyone in our project team before departing from Irkutsk.

At 10.00AM we will travel overland to the coastal town of Listvyanka (about a 90 minute drive). From there all our volunteers will gather their backpacks and all our trail-building equipment and supplies to travel for two hours by boat up to our project camp site.
Once we arrive at the site our crew captains will help lead you:
  • set up camp (first by setting up all the tents, then by gathering up firewood and helping prepare for the first camp supper!)
  • participate in our initial training on trail safety, and on the rules and protocols that will guide us for the duration of the project.
Your crew leader will also share a schedule of daily chores for all the participants, assigning each one of you a share of the cooking shifts and other tasks that will help us maintain an orderly camp.
Days 2-7
These are the days when we will be working on the trail. We will clear out spaceto widen an existing trail, and, where necessary, we will construct special structuresalong the way (such as small bridges, stairway inclines, or retaining walls for the trail).

On average our teams will work around 6 hours a day, with a break for lunch.

There will be one full day off work for everyone, where all team members will stay near the camp site to enjoy a day of rest and recreation.
Day 8: Project completion date
On this last morning the project team will be asked to break camp, and collect and pack all their personal belongings as well as all the tools, equipment, and supplies for the return boat trip. Once we reach Listvyanka again, we will take a bus back to Irkutsk, and then conduct a final debriefing meeting at our GBT city offices.

Your project team leaders:
We will have one crew-leader, who is the head of the entire project and organizes daily work schedules and oversees all work to ensure that safety protocols are met. There will also be an assistant crew-leader who will help manage the project, and will also lead the evening cultural and entertainment programs for our volunteer participants.

Взнос за участие в проектах ББТ
С 2005 года для участия в проектах ББТ введен взнос, который включает прямые расходы на проекты, связанные с пребыванием волонтёров в лагере:
  • трансфер от точки сбора до места проведения проекта и выезд обратно,
  • закупка продуктов для 5-ти разового питания.

Остальные средства для проведения проектов формируются из полученных грантов, частных и спонсорских пожертвований, что позволяет нам:
  • проводить подготовку проектов (проводить разведки, предпроектные работы, заключать необходимые договора, получать разрешения, подготавливать специалистов, организовывать логистику проектов, подготавливать культурно-познавательные программы, закупать продукты)
  • предоставлять групповой инвентарь (инструменты, костровое оборудование, палатки, тенты), аптечки, мерч.

До встречи на проектах ББТ!
