Poznan Summer School (Poznan)
Description: Poznań is the city located in west-central part of the country. This year for the third time a secondary public school in Poznań will host an international group of volunteers. Volunteers will organize different workshops for a group of local youth from the school, between 13 and 19 years old, who mostly have no possibility to spend holidays outside their place of living. It will be a chance for them to meet people from different countries and to spend holidays in an interesting way. Our aim is to build young people’s self esteem and self confidence, encourage them to speak English, teach tolerance and openness towards diversity, develop creativity. We invite volunteers full of ideas and positive energy who are not afraid also of visiting local senior club or disabled children.
Type of Work: Volunteers will be responsible for organizing games, sport activities and workshops for young people, both artistic and educational (e.g. related to culture, traditions of the countries/regions of their origin, photography). They will work approximately 6 hours per day. To make the work more diverse, there will be also an opportunity to get to know local senior club and an association for kids with cerebral palsy. There will be a chance to collaborate with them in some way, e.g by making some workshops or with gardening around the building.
Accommodation: In the school, in a separate flat, sleeping on mattresses. Volunteers will share a common bedroom, dining room, kitchen and toilet. The showers are available in separate building, 50 meters from the accomodation. Please bring your sleeping bag.
Requirements: Our ideal volunteer is highly motivated to work with youth, has great communication skills and can easily interact with the young ones. His/her head is full of ideas; responsibility and self-reliance are his/her best qualities. Artistic skills and your own ideas for activities and classes with young people are greatly welcome!
