Polska Fundacja im. Roberta Schumana is looking for volunteers, who would like to join our Erasmus + EVS project.
We are looking for two volunteers that would like to join our team and volunteer in our office in Warsaw (Poland) for 12 months (starting date: October 2015).
Volunteers’ main task is to do school visits in European School Clubs (informal groups of pupils and teachers interested in Europe and international cooperation) across Poland and give presentations and workshops about their own countries (traditions, values, young people lifestyle) or other topics, such as how does the European Union work, what is volunteering, their hobby etc. They are expected to create interactive and engaging presentations or workshops, using non-formal methods of education.
Another task is to hold an EVS info point at the foundation’s office and inform anyone who is interested about international volunteering and other youth mobility opportunities offered by the EU. It also includes managing the Info EVS e-mail box, which also means giving information and answering questions about opportunities that EVS gives.
Volunteers write articles about their EVS experience, sharing what they learnt in their work, what interactions they have with other volunteers and what cultural differences/similarities they observed as foreigners in Poland. They also help in managing the foundation’s website and social media accounts.
