Program Details

Lots of the things in our center are done on a voluntarily basis: that means everyone whom you are going to meet in the center does plenty of unpaid work.
Your possible tasks will depend on your skills.
You may help the teachers to prepare the materials for the classes, camps; support the teachers while they're giving classes, if necessary (help children to solve their tasks) and play with kids. You can also organize a workshop or a little activity for kids yourself.
Sometimes it is necessary to help us a bit in the household - simple things like hoovering, washing the floor, taking care of our small garden and sorting out some documents.
Also other tasks like crafts, painting, building or designing something are possible.

Activities & Shift

We plan about 4-5 hours work pro day; if you want, you can work 8 hours long and take an additional day off.


We expect the volunteer to be home before 10pm in the evening during the working week in order not to disturb the neighbors.
It is also important to take care of the flat where are you leaving. Feel free to cook traditional meal of your country for everybody, it will be appreciated.
