Volunteers for ZaHRAda - a friendly community school

Hnizdo - spolek pro komunitni vzdelavani

Tisnov, Czech Republic


We teach the children to see the world in a wider picture – and a foreigner volunteer can contribute to this. Our main goal of volunteer’s engagement is to benefit from the continuous presence of a non-Czech speaker which should encourage the motivation of the children to learn English and other languages. Main contribution of the volunteer will then be his/her active participation in school activities. The volunteer will perform many of the activities done by teacher’s assistants. From a certain point of view, the volunteer will be treated like the oldest child – taking part in games and group activities, he/she will - BE with children. He/she can also help with the class management, organise events for the public and for the parents, help with administration, photo gallery etc. He/she will also be encouraged to run his/her own workshop, hobby club etc. according to his/her interest. During summer holidays, volunteers can help with summer camps and preparation of the new school year.

Logi, mad og transport

The volunteer will have his/her own bedroom in a flat in Tišnov. This flat will probably be shared with another volunteer, together they will use the kitchen and bathroom. Good internet connection is provided. Meals will be served in a school canteen during school time. We can even provide vegan of glutenfree diet. The volunteer will arrange his meal in the morning, in the evening and during weekends. Since Tišnov is a small town, it is easy to pass in on foot. If the volunteer shows interest, a bicycle or scooter can be provided. There is good train connection to the city of Brno.

Oplæring i løbet af projektet

The volunteer will be offered Czech lessons with an experienced lector. Of course he/she can join all the training and seminars connected to the ESC programme. Also if they are interested, they can visit training, short time courses and seminars with other members of the school staff. During the stay at the school they will improve their communication, teaching and language skills a lot. They will experience many different games and teaching methods, montessori pedagogical approaches and will be able to make their own opinion about the so-called innovative learning.

Frivilliges profil

The volunteer can be anyone who wants to have experience in work with school aged children, who has an appropriate physical condition (the school involves outdoor physical activities during all seasons) and mental fitness (the children can be sometimes noisy and very active). Open-mindedness, playfulness and sense of humour are appreciated as well as a good level of spoken english. We do not require any specific education. In case there are more applicants with similar profile we prefer a person who can stay for a longer time, best option would be the whole year.
