Accommodation, food, and transport arrangements:

The apartments will be rented for the entire time of volunteers’ mobilities and are equipped with all necessary utilities. Volunteers are obliged to keep the flat clean. In Warsaw volunteers will live in 2 apartments, each will be shared by up to 7 volunteers. Mostly, volunteers will share a bedroom with another volunteer. Volunteers hosted at Wojkowice will live in Będzin, a town close to Wojkowice. It takes about 30 minutes to get from the flat to the school by bus. In Wojkowice 2 volunteers will share a flat, each will have their own bedroom. Living costs (cost of water, electricity, internet, etc.) will be covered by the Schuman Foundation, but volunteers will be obliged to sustainable use of the recourses.

Each volunteer will receive about 100 € per month (in PLN currency though) as a food allowance. 

Transport cards are provided. For volunteers in Warsaw a card for zone 1 is provided. The city has 2 zones of transport, however zone 1 includes all main districts of Warsaw. In Wojkowice the volunteers will receive a travel card for the whole Silesian agglomeration. Small cities like Będzin and Wojkowice are interconnected so when you go by bus you can hardly notice when one city ends and another begins.

Details about transportation to the country are in the info pack.
