Activity description

We are looking for last out of 3 ESC volunteers, who will become part of our educational team starting from 1.4.2023. During the project, the volunteers will be helping us with organizing the volunteering, educational and promotional activities.

They will choose which international volunteering camp they want to lead: free time activities for seniors, for people with disabilities, be part of eco village, reconstruction of castles or renovation of a historical school. They will learn soft skills like leadership, conflict resolution, time management, public speaking, management of the budget. They will be part of 30th Anniversary of our organization: Promotion of volunteering at schools, Organising meetings/activities for volunteers, Creating workshop according to your own initiative and interest focusing on European Year of Skills, Administrative/Office work and many more.

Accommodation, food and transport arrangements

This flat is situated near the city center and all the important institutions are around. They can find there laundry facilities as well as fully equipped kitchen. There are two rooms in the flat for the volunteers, so two volunteers will have to share a room.

Since our office is near the flat, volunteers can walk to the work.
