Michalowice (near Warsaw)
Description: This year for the fifth time Michałowice community will host an international group of volunteers during workcamp in Opacz Kolonia. Volunteers together with Polish teachers will organize different workshops for a group of local kids and youth who mostly have no possibility to spend holidays outside their place of living because of their material and family situation. It will be the only chance for them to meet people from different countries and to spend holidays in an interesting way. Our aim is to encourage them to start speaking English and to show them other cultures and traditions.
Type of Work: Volunteers will be responsible for organizing games and workshops for children aged from 6 to 13 years e.g. sport activities, games, artistic activities. They will work 6 hours per day from Monday to Friday, kids are arriving around 9am and they are leaving at 3pm.
Accommodation: In a separate building of the community, in the same area as the building were kids have their activities, small freshly renovated house with 2 bedrooms, terrace, 2 bathrooms (but only one with shower and washing machine) and kitchen.
Requirements: Interest in working with kids, creativity, enthusiasm, responsibility, positive energy. Your own ideas for activities and classes with kids are greatly appreciated!
