Activities within the project:

a) work in the kindergarten (main activity)

The kindergarten provides education and everyday care to about 195 children, age 3–6, living in Pułtusk. They are divided into groups of about 20-25 pupils according to their age. Some classes are integration classes including 1-3 children with mild disabilities or behavioural disorders. The role of ESC volunteer is to assist one of the groups and support its teachers in everyday work with children. The volunteer will be working mostly with the oldest, 5-6 years old children, but occasionally will have a chance to support younger groups. The volunteer’s tasks include helping with regular educational activities (writing, drawing, manual activities), preparation to celebrations and special events (e.g. performance for Mothers’ Day), excursions as well as self-service activities (dressing up, eating), individual support to children with disabilities.

b) work with local community, mostly youth (additional activity)

Once or twice per month together with other foreign volunteers from Pultusk the volunteer will be visiting local schools and institutions to run cultural presentations and language meetings.

c) group life

In the period 2019/20 there will be 4 more volunteers staying in Pultusk and at least 5 more volunteers in other locations. The volunteers will have integration meetings and workshops together, we also encourage them to help each other in the projects and realise own, group initiatives.
