We seek a balance of varied ages, genders and nationalities amongst our volunteers. As required by Erasmus+ Programme, all candidates from the European Union must be registered in European Solidarity Corps database.
We are not looking for experienced volunteers but those that would learn a lot during the service in a given receiving organization.
Apart from personal motivation of volunteers our requirement is volunteers’ strong will of learning Polish language after selection procedure successfully ends. We need selected volunteers to know a few crucial phrases and already have substantial vocabulary of Polish at the moment they start their project. Why is this important? Because they will work with disabled children and youth, which often does not speak English or any other language.
