You're needed to teach conversational English for one to three weeks as a volunteer in Poland. Serve in rural school classrooms in the Siedlce region, east of Warsaw. No formal teaching experience required! Everyone's invited as a classroom resource - using our teaching manual. This is an especially fulfilling student, family and group assignment. Exceptional accommodations offer a premier service-learning experience.
Global Volunteers’ partner community is also hosting hundreds of Ukraine mothers and children who have escaped war in their country – and now must adjust to life as refugees. Volunteers have joined service programs to provide material and moral support – what the United Nations call “psychosocial support” – which takes many forms. Groups of mothers and their children are invited to Reymontówka, the Polish manor house where volunteers stay during service programs, for evening meals, music, fun, games, interaction, and relaxation with volunteers.

Since 1990, Global Volunteers has been playing a vital role in helping Poland’s students learn English – the language of the world’s marketplace. Volunteer groups and families from all walks of life teach conversational English skills to youth in classrooms and informal group settings at summer camps in Siedlce, an historical city and in the picturesque alpine community of Zakopane. No teaching experience is necessary, as exposure to the language through native speakers is extremely helpful to the students. You can make a difference teaching English in Poland!
