The apartments will be rented for the entire time of volunteers’ mobilities and are equipped with all necessary utilities. In Warsaw volunteers will live in 2 apartments, each will be shared by up to 6-8 volunteers. Each volunteer will get the amount of 6 € per day, so about 180€ (in Polish currency) per month. Additionally, each volunteer will receive about 100 € for food per month (in PLN). Transport cards for Warsaw are provided. Travel to & from the mobility is covered by the program. The Schuman Foundation will reimburse the costs of the visa (if appears). 


Volunteers will take part in pre-departure training organized by the Supporting Organization, on-arrival and mid-term training organized by the Polish National Agency of the ESC program, and internal on-arrival organized by the Polish Robert Schuman Foundation which coordinates the project. The first days followed by the volunteers’ arrival to Warsaw will be spent all together, not in a particular hosting organization. Schuman Foundation will prepare integration activities & deal with the logistics. Hosting organizations will organize introduction days at the beginning of the mobility. 


We are looking for volunteers aged between 18 and 30 years, legally residing in one of the participating or partner countries. We seek a balance of varied ages, genders, and nationalities. We are not looking for experienced volunteers but those who are willing to learn during the mobility. Apart from personal motivation our requirement is volunteers’ strong will to learn the Polish language. Volunteers need to know a few crucial phrases since they will work with children and youth, who often don’t speak English.
