Creative Krasocin (near Kielce)
Description: Krasocin is a village located in the Świętokrzyskie Mountains in the south-central Poland. It is surrounded by forests and fields. The forests are full of hares and deer, the fields smell of flowers. Inhabitants of Krasocin are local patriots and many of them social-workers. Events related to historical events (e.g. reconstructions of battles) often take place. Many local kids have no chance to spend holidays away from their villages because of their material situation. They don't have much opportunity to travel so we want to let the world come to them. Our aim is to build children's self-esteem and self-confidence, encourage them to speak English, teach tolerance and openness towards diversity and develop creativity. We invite volunteers who are full of ideas and who have positive energy.
Type of Work: Volunteers will be responsible for organising activities (artistic, sport, educational, craft) for children who stay in their hometown for holidays. Volunteers will also assist during the trips to the swimming pool and to the cinema. To get a general idea, you are welcome to see some photos from last 3 years: https://www.facebook.com/events/144424302633252/
Accommodation: In school classrooms, sleeping on mattresses (volunteers should have their own sleeping bags).
Requirements: Strong interest in working with children, creativity, responsibility, positive energy. You're welcome to bring your own materials for activities with children and for intercultural evening.
