We have a great opportunity for those that speak English, native speakers and non-native speakers (at roughly C1 level) are welcome! Serve the City Kraków is looking for volunteers who could commit 90 minutes every other week to provide English conversation opportunities for a group of teachers and caregivers in the Special Purpose School and Education Center for intellectually challenged kids (SOS-W no 4 on H. Wietora Street [Kraków]) and its branch school (in Nowa Huta os. Zielone). If you are a native speaker or speak English at C1 level or above, if you want to give something back to people who on a regular basis pour their hearts out to help very challenged kids, if you have 90 minutes every second week to spare to get to know the dedicated staff and help them learn English, you are the right kind of person for the project! No prior experience of teaching or special qualification needed apart from what you feel your heart qualifies you to do.
