AREA ONE: DEVELOPMENT OF THE SKILLS
Main goal of the volunteers is going to be a work in Young Creators’ Club – with youth from local schools, in Occupational Therapy Workshop, Therapeutic day-room and Little Child and Family Centre. Those are places, where volunteers will have an opportunity to develop their skills and to obtain new experiences. Volunteers may work in all of those institutions or choose one/two of them according to their interests.

AREA TWO: EUROPEAN CITIZENSHIP
Activity of the volunteers is first and foremost working in above establishments, but not only that. Another important element of their activity is commitment to the actions, whom main target is to deepen a sense of European citizenship as well as promotion of activities related to EVS and Erasmus + Programme. We are planning to conduct meetings with a youth from local schools. Those meetings will be a good occasion to exchange experiences, to promote EVS and Erasmus + Programme and to present volunteers’ culture in local community.
AREA THREE: POLISH CULTURE
Volunteers are going to be involved in activities, which allow them to learn about Polish tradition, morals and culture:
participation in lessons of polish language;
provided constant contact with polish youth;
organizing ‘polish evenings’, as well as volunteers national evenings’;
participation in sight-seeing tours (within their work);
participation in cultural events etc.
THE PRACTICAL ARRANGEMENTS
We are very flexible in terms of volunteers’ work. We are open for volunteer’s suggestions. They can choose in which establishment they want to work more and in which less. The volunteers together with the coordinator will agree about the working hours and a weekly schedule. The amount of work should not exceed 36 hours per week.
The volunteers work 5 days a week (Monday to Friday). For every month of work each of them can get two extra days free. They can cumulate the days and take longer holidays. Nevertheless, they have to obtain the agreement regarding the dates from the Host Organization.
Volunteers are going to be ensured with separate flat in a block of flats. They are going to live in the 3 rooms flat (one separate room for each volunteer). Volunteers will be provided with a standard equipment and essential household goods.
They are going to receive money for food (about 100 € per month). It will be their decision, whether they would like to prepare their meals by their own in the flat, or to buy them in a local school canteen. Depending on their decision, we will help them to organize it.
Every month volunteers are going to receive pocket money (85 €) for their own expenses.
If it comes to local transport, there is no problem in our town. Sępólno Krajeńskie is a small town (11 000 inhabitants), that there is no need for it.
Polish language classes
Lessons of polish language will be leaded by a professionally active teacher, who worked with us in the past, during previous visits of volunteers. Lessons are going to have individual character.
Volunteers with special needs
Unfortunately we do not have possibility to host volunteers with special needs at this time.
