Accommodation, food and transport arrangements

Volunteering 30-35 h/week; there will be one person (a tutor) in your organization responsible for planning the schedule with you and advising on everyday tasks; accommodation in a private room in a shared apartment (3-5 other volunteers); monthly food and pocket money.

Training during the project

On-arrival training in Lithuania; access to the Lithuanian language course with the OLS language program; regular meetings with a mentor.

Volunteer profile

Since many of the event that we organize deal with promotion of reading, the volunteer should value reading and learning. In addition, the volunteer should be sociable, communicative, not afraid of the language barrier (especially in the beginning), flexible, patient, open-minded, initiative and tolerant. Advanced social skills are not necessary, because he/she can improve them here. It would be great if the volunteer would have a wish to improve, to learn, to get to know new things.
