We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers!
Our first term will begin on September 29, 2019, and we are looking for volunteers to work with us here at Word of Life Poland. Currently we need people with skills in these areas:
- Teachers should have experience and a passion for teaching and discipleship.
- Background in teaching ESL / EFL is beneficial but not necessary.
- We have a full industrial kitchen ready to feed hungry staff and students.
Housekeeping & Cleaning
- Our new, state of the art ministry center needs some help staying clean.
Property & Building Maintenance
- We need people with handyman skills or landscaping experience.
What should I expect?
Aside from helping our program and property function, you will have many opportunities to befriend and disciple students. Eating meals together, participating in chapel, and having meaningful conversation are all opportunities to impact the lives of Polish students for eternity.
The school schedule will run from Monday night to Friday afternoon each week, leaving the weekends free to rest or experience Polish history and culture.
When do I come?
We have 3 school terms each year, each lasting about 2 months. Below are term dates for the 2019-2020 school year:
Term 1: Sept. 29 - Nov. 29
Term 2: Jan. 7 - March 20
Term 3: March 29 - June 5
Volunteers may stay for 1 or more terms depending on their availability. Arrival and departure will vary for each person, but expect to arrive at least 1 week before the term begins and stay a couple days after.
Volunteers who are with us during term 2 or through the summer will have the opportunity to be a part of our youth camps.
