Volunteers needed to teach English!

We have a great opportunity for those that speak English, native speakers and non-native speakers (at the C1 level) are welcome!

Serve the City Kraków poszukuje wolontariuszy, którzy mogliby oddać raz na dwa tygodnie 90 minut swojego czasu na zajęcia konwersacyjne w j. angielskim z grupą nauczycieli i obsługi Specjalnego Ośrodka Szkolno-Wychowawczego nr. 4 przy ul. H. Wietora w Krakowie. Jeżeli znasz rodzimego użytkownika j. angielskiego, który potencjalnie byłby zainteresowany, lub angielski nie jest Tobie obcy i oceniasz go co najmniej na poziom C1, chcesz coś oddać od siebie tym, którzy na co dzień oddają prawie wszystko niepełnosprawnym dzieciom, to jesteś właściwą osobą. Wcześniejsze doświadczenie nauczania j. angielskiego lub certyfikaty nie są konieczne – najważniejszym wymogiem jest poruszenie w Twoim sercu.

Details:

  • Two levels: beginner’s and intermediate
  • English conversations are for the teachers and caregivers in the school (not with the kids), other opportunities to volunteer with the kids will be available soon.

  • Commitment at least one semester to half a year

We will seek more opportunities and other places that could benefit from a similar project. Nowa Huta – a branch school of the one in Kazimierz is also interested (to be arranged though).

If you are interested please sign up by clicking the button below and filling in the signup form, we will contact you as soon as possible with further details and begin scheduling! If the schedule is already full of volunteers we will need some “backup” volunteers from time to time.
