Stu­dent Labor Detachments

• The “LESOPILKA” Stu­dent Labor Detachment
10 rea­sons to join the Stu­dent Labor Detachment

1. Every­thing is real in a Stu­dent Labor Detach­ment! The Labor Detach­ment is not a game. This is a real job for real mon­ey with real respon­si­bil­i­ty: for pas­sen­gers, for chil­dren in camps, for the con­struc­tions, which are built or repaired.

2. Thou­sands of young peo­ple and teen agers do not waste their time at the com­put­ers every sum­mer. They work and earn mon­ey (depend­ing on their skills and qual­i­fi­ca­tions), they get expe­ri­ence in the field that may become their spe­cial­ty (builder, con­duc­tor, coun­selor). There are no addicts in Stu­dent Labor Detach­ments as they are not attract­ed by our labo­ri­ous atmosphere.

3. You can become the leader of a Stu­dent Labor Detach­ment and get a unique oppor­tu­ni­ty in the stu­den­t’s years to find out how it is to lead a team. The com­man­der and the com­mis­sar are real man­agers. They devel­op plans, deter­mine time and vol­ume of the work to be done, as well as they indi­cate how and who will car­ry out the planned actions (com­mands of Stu­dent Labor Detach­ment mem­bers), devel­op pro­ce­dures (tech­nolo­gies), and exer­cise con­trol. All in all, they car­ry out all the tra­di­tion­al func­tions of a leader: the infor­ma­tion basis devel­op­ment (to set the lan­guage, world sys­tem, and image), plan­ning, set­ting tasks, train­ing and devel­op­ment, moti­va­tion and stim­u­la­tion, con­trol. And the most impor­tant thing is that they learn to take decisions.

4. There are many orga­ni­za­tions teach­ing lead­er­ship and man­age­ment in lec­tures. Our mem­bers acquire these skills in real life. It is well known that only the best can become lead­ers and heads. Our mem­bers know how to obey and to sub­or­di­nate com­mon rules and tra­di­tions, so they will be able to adapt them­selves eas­i­ly to chang­ing life con­di­tions and new jobs after grad­u­at­ing from our high­er edu­ca­tion­al estab­lish­ment. The dis­ci­pline is not just a word for our mem­bers (“no alco­hol law”, meet­ings, votes, etc.). The par­tic­i­pants of Stu­dent Labor Detach­ments know from the very begin­ning, what are the Char­ter and the Eth­i­cal Code of a Stu­dent Labor Detach­ment, the struc­ture, pro­ce­dures, their rights and duties. As the ancient Romans used to say: “Keep the order and it will save you”.

5. The train­ing is an advan­tage of the Stu­dent Labor Detach­ment life! The train­ing can be dif­fer­ent: both pro­fes­sion­al activ­i­ties, and man­age­ment skills, team­work skills, com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills with employ­ers and pre­sen­ta­tions. The pro­fes­sion­al skill com­pe­ti­tions are car­ried out on reg­u­lar basis (the best coun­selor, con­duc­tor, and builder).

6. If a young per­son is inclined to social activ­i­ties, he/she will have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to real­ize his/her abil­i­ties in this direc­tion. Char­i­ta­ble activ­i­ties, assis­tance to chil­dren, vet­er­ans, patron­age of chil­dren’s insti­tu­tions, work with prob­lem kids and with groups of senior high school stu­dents are the main direc­tions of their activ­i­ty, in which the Mem­bers are engaged all the year round.

7. You will be able to devel­op and real­ize your cre­ative poten­tial in var­i­ous aspects. To do this, we have all the con­di­tions and hold a num­ber of cre­ative events.

8. You will get into the unique cul­tur­al atmos­phere of team move­ment and the tra­di­tions, which have been devel­oped and cul­ti­vat­ed for decades.

9. The Stu­dent Labor Detach­ments devel­op kind­ness, mutu­al assis­tance, friend­ship for many years. The young peo­ple, who passed this school, will nev­er stay alone in this world.

10. And, final­ly, every third mem­ber of a Stu­dent Labor Detach­ment cre­ates a strong and unit­ed fam­i­ly. And their grown–up chil­dren also join the Stu­dent Labor Detach­ment move­ment, often re-estab­lish­ing their par­ents’ Detachments.

Terms and concepts

Stu­dent Labor Detach­ments of St. Peters­burg rep­re­sent a move­ment with a 65-year his­to­ry. The orga­ni­za­tion unites more than 1500 stu­dents – mem­bers of Stu­dent Labor Detach­ments of var­i­ous types in all high­er edu­ca­tion­al estab­lish­ments of the City. If we count­ed all the peo­ple, who have been mem­bers of Stu­dent Labor Detach­ments, we will gath­er more than 300 thou­sand persons!

The SPbF­TU “Stu­dent Labor Detach­ments of St. Peters­burg” is a seri­ous orga­ni­za­tion enjoy­ing pres­tige among employ­ers, author­i­ties and the pop­u­la­tion. The Char­ter of the orga­ni­za­tion spells out all the fun­da­men­tal prin­ci­ples and pro­vi­sions. The his­to­ry of the Stu­dent Labor Detach­ments is the his­to­ry of Rus­sia. A lot of out­stand­ing per­sons in our coun­try start­ed their pub­lic activ­i­ties in Stu­dent Labor Detach­ments. Many of them became well-known politi­cians, suc­cess­ful busi­ness­men, sci­en­tists and pop­u­lar musicians.

What is a Line Stu­dent Labor Detachment?

The Line Stu­dent Labor Detach­ment is a vol­un­tary non-polit­i­cal asso­ci­a­tion of stu­dents, estab­lished for joint pro­duc­tion, pub­lic-edu­ca­tion­al and cul­tur­al activ­i­ties. In oth­er words, this is a con­stant­ly updat­ed team of stu­dents, who do var­i­ous kinds of work dur­ing their third semes­ter. They earn mon­ey and live an active life in the prepara­to­ry peri­od. They par­tic­i­pate in var­i­ous events, com­pe­ti­tions, stud­ies, com­mu­ni­ca­tions with oth­er detachments.

What are the types of Stu­dent Labor Detachments?

There are 4 main types:

1. Stu­dent Con­struc­tion Detach­ments (SCD). They per­form con­struc­tion and instal­la­tion works in sum­mer time on the basis of con­tract agree­ments and labor agree­ments with eco­nom­ic organizations;

2. Stu­dent Con­duc­tor Detach­ments (SCD). They work as con­duc­tors of pas­sen­ger rail­way cars;

3. Stu­dent Ped­a­gog­i­cal Detach­ments (SPD). They work as heads of chil­dren’s groups in sum­mer health camps;

4. Stu­dent Ser­vice Detach­ments (SSD). They ren­der dif­fer­ent kinds of ser­vices: shop­ping, trav­el, flight atten­dant, pro­pa­gan­da, pro­mot­ers and others.

Life in the Stu­dent Detachment

If accept­ed, each appli­cant becomes a mem­ber at first. Grad­u­al­ly, he/she shows himself/ her­self worth, can take any office in the Detach­ment: the com­man­der, the com­mis­sar, the mas­ter, the method­ol­o­gist, the com­man­dant and so on. If you show activ­i­ty and ini­tia­tive, you will gain author­i­ty; you will be able to grow fur­ther — to become one of the lead­ers or spe­cial­ists of the Head­quar­ters of the Uni­ver­si­ty Stu­dent Detach­ment or Spe­cial­ized Head­quar­ters and even the City Staff of Stu­dent Detach­ments in St. Petersburg.

Dur­ing the prepara­to­ry peri­od, the train­ing is active­ly con­duct­ed in var­i­ous areas: voca­tion­al train­ing on spe­cial­ty, in which the Stu­dent Detach­ment mem­bers work in the vir­gin land (con­struc­tion, con­duc­tor of a pas­sen­ger car, coun­selor), train­ing of the Stu­dent Detach­ment com­man­der (com­man­der, com­mis­sar), train­ing of Stu­dent Detach­ment spe­cial­ists (mas­ter, method­ol­o­gist, com­man­dant). Along­side with the edu­ca­tion received at Uni­ver­si­ty, the Stu­dent Labor Detach­ment mem­bers will acquire addi­tion­al knowl­edge in their sec­ond occu­pa­tion and in effec­tive management.



Many stu­dents of the For­est Tech­ni­cal Uni­ver­si­ty in Saint Peters­burg were asked one and the same ques­tion: “What is Zelen­ka?”. Their answers were sur­pris­ing: thick bush­es … the bril­liant green (anti­sep­tic) applied to the wound… last name … tetraethyl‑4,4‑diaminotriphenylmethane oxalate …, etc.  But only few of them said: “Zelen­ka is a world of sum­mer camp, child­hood, laugh­ter, friends, unfor­get­table sto­ries and emotions …”

What kind of life awaits you, if you come to the school of sum­mer camp mas­tery and become a part of the Detach­ment? It will be bright, unfor­get­table and energetic.

Dur­ing the whole aca­d­e­m­ic year, you will have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to come up with var­i­ous cre­ative num­bers, shoot video tapes, play and win sports com­pe­ti­tions, spend the nights singing to the gui­tar at the bon­fire, learn to ori­en­tate your­self in the night for­est, par­tic­i­pate in train­ings and depar­tures of active mem­bers from all the City. And in sum­mer time, the camp, a hard shoul­der of your fel­low work­er and many chil­dren will be wait­ing for you. Hav­ing worked a shift in a chil­dren’s camp, you will:

- be aware of all new movies and musi­cal trends;

- get acquaint­ed with Zimburella;

- find new friends;

- find out what the Stu­dent Sum­mer Camp soft­ware is, the mem­bers’ cir­cle, morn­ing conference;

- learn more 10 camp dances and more;

- count your sum­mer camp chil­dren more than 1000 times;

- make a steep wall news­pa­per with­out What­man paper and any colors;

- answer the ques­tions: Why does a cow eat grass and the horse does not? Does the Scare­crow stay under the bed? How many sal­ad help­ings can a sum­mer camp leader eat at one time?  You will be able find the answer to the ques­tion: “Shall we eat today?”

Thus, we have derived the fol­low­ing formula:

Emo­tions + com­mu­ni­ca­tion + cre­ativ­i­ty + camp = The “Zelen­ka” Stu­dent Sum­mer Camp.

The life of the Stu­dent Sum­mer Camp Detach­ment is a small world that we (the mem­bers) cre­ate every day and it cre­ates each of us in turn.
