“Hai la Olimpiada!” program, initiated by eMAG Foundation in 2012 and supported by BCR starting from 2014, expands its network and reaches 20 free centers in 10 cities across the country, in this school year.
Starting from October, besides reopening the already existing centers from Brasov, Bucharest, Buzau, Constanta, Cluj-Napoca, Iasi and Timisoara, new performance centers will be opened in Baia Mare, Oradea and Piatra Neamt.
“In the “Hai la Olimpiada!” Performance training centers, students’ training is provided by the best teachers in the town. We continue to value the devoted teachers’ community, since they are able to guide children for the questions of tomorrow. The courses in the centers are free, and to be able to participate to these courses, students with the best results in the school contests will be tested. In this school year, we are present in 10 cities and we intend to have such centers, by 2020, in at least 30 Romanian cities and to reach at least 5,000 children who wish and are able to train at a level that is above average”, stated Tudor Vlad, the President of the eMAG for Education Foundation (Fundatia eMAG pentru Educatie).
“Supporting children and young people who wish to make performance is one of the BCR’s strategic directions of involving into the community. We believe it’s our duty to contribute to the development of a competitive society, led by well-prepared leaders, who are able to inspire and to produce positive changes in the society. We’re glad to support children and young people who wish to make performance, by the “Hai la Olimpiada!” program. We’ll continue to support them by funding the free training centers for Mathematics, Computer Science and Physics. We are proud to invest in the passion and desire to achieve outstanding results with the children and young people who will be tomorrow’s leaders of Romania”, stated Ionut Stanimir, BCR Director of Communication.
