Teaching in Poland
Childcare volunteer in Poland

You're needed to teach in rural elementary and middle-school classrooms in the Siedlce region, east of Warsaw and at English language camps in the Tatra mountain village of Zakopane.
The primary objectives are to intensify the young students' desire to learn English and to enhance the adults' ability to communicate in English. Emphasis is on conversation, and teachers and non-teachers alike are helpful. Summer teams are a fun family Adventure in Service! Volunteers and Polish school students live and study together, take trips and play American games.
Occasionally, activities outside of teaching include:

  • After-school tutoring: Mentor and teach disadvantaged elementary students. Tutoring responsibilities include assisting in studying and homework assignments and improving social skills.
  • Special needs assistance: "Caritas" Institute serves adults age 18-50 with physical and mental disabilities. Volunteers lead English classes through games, activities, picture books, and worksheets. There is also the possibility of helping art classes, therapeutic physical activities, and offering friendship. If you have experience with special education or physical therapy patients, you are encouraged to share your skills at the Caritas Institute.
