The application deadline has passed.

Activity description

The volunteer will engage in projects that should help foreign employees to feel welcome in our region. A fresh vision of volunteers will be very helpful in discovering all the disadvantages foreigners encounter when they come here. And when we find them, it's easier to overcome them. This also would help local business to attract the best workers when a region will have good opinion among them. The volunteer(s) will also help our Export consultant in their daily work: this include: organizing training for local businesses (which includes: maintaining a attendance list, preparing drinks and snacks for attendance, maintaining a training room clean and tidy), promoting local goods and companies on the international market, creating a newsletter and a database with local exporting companies, also managing website and social media accounts. The volunteer(s) will be a part of lessons which we may prepare for schools.

Accommodation, food and transport arrangements

The volunteer will live in a single room with the access to kitchen, bathroom and common spaces in the flat. Distance from flat to office is by walking. All local transportation in Gostyń is free for everybody. The volunteer will receive money to cover food costs and pocket money (120 € per month). The volunteer will have 2 days off for every month in our organization. The office is in the centre of the city, on the main shopping street, near the market square on the first floor without an elevator. The volunteer will have Polish lessons in the office.

Training during the activity

At the beginning of the project, the volunteer will go on On-Arrival Training to get to know what exactly ESC project is in practice, to know his rights and obligations and to meet volunteers from other organizations. In the middle of the project, she_he will go on Midterm Training to summarize your experiences so far, get inspired and make the most of the remaining project time.
