Our association, called Association for Social Cooperatives (Stowarzyszenie na Rzecz Spółdzielni Socjalnych), has worked within the social economy sector for 10 years. We are an umbrella organisation supporting social cooperatives that give employment to the most vulnerable job-seekers: long-term unemployed, ex drug or narcotic addicts, people over 55 years alod, ex- prisoners, refugees, young people from difficult surroundings. In the frame of our activities, we help to fund new social cooperatives and to maintain the already existing ones.

We would like the EVS volunteer to work mainly in our marketing and promotion department so any previous experience or skills in this field would be very appreciated. The main tasks that we would like the volunteer to handle are: – gathering and presenting information about social economy and social cooperatives in Spain – running a blog about the EVS experience and about Polish social cooperatives – making short reportages on Polish and Spanish social cooperatives – preparing various presentations in English – helping in the organisation of English support meetings for the members of Polish social cooperatives – animation of our Twitter account along with other PR department employees In order to prepare the volunteer for the above tasks, we plan to present him the general ideas of the social economy in the EU, to show him the social cooperatives we collaborate with, make him/her participate in conferences/seminars/debates providing him/her a translation and to present the details of our daily work. A good command of English will be as well appreciated as most of our materials in foreign languages are written in English. However, a support in Spanish will be also possible as me, who will be responsible for the volunteer within our organisation, and one other employee speak Spanish.

Selection process

For the selection of the volunteers we will need:
– Europass CV with picture (made in the last month)
– Motivational letter, writing that your sending organisation will be “Building Bridges”. We ask all candidates to send a specific letter of motivation – why they want to volunteer with us rather than just a general EVS one.
Remember to write in the motivation letter that your sending institution is “Asociación Building Bridges”.

All documents written in english you can send to: with subject “EVS Poznan Together for change” .
