The history of student labor detachments goes back to the distant past. As early as the beginning of the twentieth century, they began their legendary activities. What is a student labor group? What are the activities of its members?
To date, more than 236,000 enthusiastic young people call themselves fighters of the labor front. Preserving the long-standing traditions created initially, they are actively engaged in the construction, education of children, passenger transportation, harvesting, processing of fish, service and other activities.
SRT: student labor detachment
SRT is a collective that is created for a certain period. The goal is voluntary work in your spare time. Consists of the number of students in educational institutions. The history of the creation of such labor groups begins in the distant 1924. This time is considered an initial labor term. At the beginning of the century, Soviet students participated in the construction of large state facilities, in raising virgin land, in the birth of the first collective farms. Only in 1963 there are detachments, which are occupied not only in construction. They were groups of ecologists, teachers, guides and so on.
Throughout the development of the history of the USSR in all great construction sites, everywhere there was a presence of the SRT. Work for students was on any sites, such as the Baikal-Amur Mainline, Sayano-Shushenskaya hydroelectric power station and many others. Unfortunately, with the collapse of the great power, with the dissolution of the Komsomol in 1993, most of the youth detachments disintegrated. The most persistent was Sverdlovsk SRT, this year he celebrated his thirtieth birthday.
At the beginning of the 21st century, people started talking loudly again about the revival of student detachments. And not in vain. After all, in fact, the student labor team gives young people an initial work experience. And also develops communication skills, accustoms to collectivism. The first modern working season of the 21st century in Russia was conducted on the basis of the Sverdlovsk SRT.
In the whole territory of the country such detachments are beginning to form. The number of students working in the summer months increases significantly. In all regions, headquarters are formed. It's time to unite to actively develop the movement of the SRT. This initiative was supported by the Ministry of Education of the Russian Federation.

The event was timed to coincide with the 45th anniversary of their activities. On that day, the State Kremlin Palace gathered more than five thousand participants, who came from all over the country. At the Forum, it was decided to establish a youth all-Russian society "Russian Student Detachments."
