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!
