Your Poland Service Program
For the past 31 years, Global Volunteers has served communities in Siedlce County teaching conversational English to young and old. In May, September and October volunteers teach in elementary, middle and high school classrooms in Siedlce county. Polish students of all ages are eager to gain increased proficiency in English, of vital importance in their future entry into universities and the job market in both Poland and the European Union. The emphasis on this two-to three-week program is improving conversational English. Volunteers usually teach four hours a day, allowing equal time for preparation and team meetings. In October volunteers with professional teaching experience in economics, business, law, or foreign language teaching methodologies will be of great help to the students from Siedlce University of Natural Sciences and Humanities, to offer lectures and/or engage students in conversations on topics related to the American history, government and legal system, business, and teaching methodologies.
During the summer months, volunteers will teach Polish youth in an informal “camp” atmosphere at Reymontowka Manor House. The summer camp schedule calls for English classes in the morning to the early afternoon. Volunteers have the chance to interact with students through a variety of free-time activities including tennis, art projects, dance, and evening programs. At the end of each session, students perform skits, songs, and poetry readings in English.
