Czech volunteers abroad
To date, 12 volunteers from the Czech Republic travelled to 9 countries2 in EU to spend their voluntary year there. When Slezskádiakonie “sends” volunteers abroad, it is done via partner organizations in EDYN (www.edyn.org).
2Sweden, Italy, Portugal, Germany, Hungary, Denmark, Belgium, France and Poland.
In a hosting organization, volunteers are supported by their local supervisors, mentors and coordinators. There are seminars held for them and their fellow-volunteers regularly. There might be also other activities or meetings arranged – that depends on the particular host country.
An InterVIA coordinator is in contact with volunteers as well as with the hosting organization.
Before the volunteers hit the road and travel to their host countries, there is a pre-departure seminar organized for them and, when their service is over and they come back home, there is an evaluation seminar arranged.
INVY offers you an opportunity to deepen your knowledge and broaden your horizons. It would be really nice – and helpful – if you shared your experience with others.
To illustrate, there is a video where Klárka, who volunteered in Poland for 9 months, describes what her voluntary service was like.
