This is Sibel from Turkey. I’m 27 and I studied at the faculty of education about early childhood education. I’m a preschool teacher. I will be volunteering for the next 6 months in The Free Bullerbyn School in Warsaw/Poland.
I like to reflect my knowledge and experience to people. I like to learn and i like to teach. I’m curious and I like to do research on topics that I am curious about. I like being busy with my job and finding ways to make children curious and excited. I love children and I take care to spend quality time with them. Also I like reading, researching, drawing, travelling, learning new languages and doing crafts handmade.
So I’m a teacher and you can’t become a teacher just by reading books you have to experience the world. That’s what I want to do right now. With this project I want to raise my awareness about different cultures and improve my education skills also my empathy. And I know that this project will make a great contribution to me. I’m so excited and I hope to gain good experience abroad and share my own skills and experiences with you..
See you soon!

I am Amiko from Georgia and I am participating in ESC program. I arrived in Szczecin about a month ago, met my mentors and my flat mates. Everything is going very well. It is a very friendly and international environment here, that I like a lot. The purpose of my visit here is to gain some experience, improve my life skills and learn the culture of another country. This program is long term and I will be here in Poland for about a year. My duty is to help children and involve them in various activities, for example, to do fun warm-up exercises and I also want to teach them Georgian traditional dance. I like this place very much and I am glad that I decided to participate in this project.

Hello, My name is Ayshan Huseynova. I am from Azerbaijan, Baku, the capital city. It is located in the east side of Azerbaijan. Besides that, I have a close-knit family. There are five of us: a sister, a brother, a mother, a father and me. I am originally from the south-west area. With regards to my hobbies, I used to draw a lot while I was in primary school.

Hi! I’m Azer. I am from Azerbaijan and I am 24 years old, I am a volunteer at school number 9 in Sosnowiec, Poland. At the age of 18, I decided to go into business and live alone, and I developed myself in software. Now I am working as a software developer in a reputable company. I am thinking of building a new school in Azerbaijan, so I need some experience for a while to improve myself. That’s why the most suitable choice for me is the ESC volunteering project. And Poland is one of the best for me. If I have such a chance and it is possible to experience it the way I want, why not join the ESC project. My first day at school was very exciting, but the tolerant attitude of the students towards me and the good dialogue with the teachers amused me a lot and I can’t wait to go back to school. Every time I learn a new Polish vocabulary and get a new recipe. I like to eat a little too much. so at school, they suggest I cook Polish food and I cook Polish food. I really liked the volunteer project. I am sure that at the end of my volunteering, I will recommend it to my friends with great faith.

The kindergarten is in Lodz, Poland, Fundacja Dmuchawiec, grateful to them for this opportunity.Project is cofunded by European Solidarity Corps.

Speaking from experience, I know what a transformative impact school can have on children.

“Theatre for Social Change” – This is the name of my project and as you already understand it is connected to the performing art and theatre. We hope to make impact on society through our performances and influence positive changes in both local and international community.
So far I don’t have any experience in performing but I believe in my capacity to handle this challenge as long as my will to make impact on our lives is strong. Also, I hope to learn a lot about Polish culture and the country itself, travel in different cities and gain life-lasting friends here. ESC projects are the best opportunity for this.
As you see my expectations are high but hopefully they will all come true : )
My name is Raúl and I am from Gran Canaria, Spain.
Right now I am participating in the ESC project in Sokolowsko, with In Situ foundation.
The project is an eco project in Spa Park. Our goal is to work with the fauna and flora of the place and help conserve and restore the natural heritage of the place
You will wonder why I chose this project and that place. The answer is because I love nature and everything that surrounds it, animals and plants. I think it is a good opportunity to be able to enjoy this time here learning and surrounded by good colleagues.
My name is Maria, I’m a new ESC volunteer in Poland. I’m participating in a project called ‘Theatre for Social Change’ and as you can guess, it’s about theatre We are trained for a very special kind of theatrical performance called Playback where the audience tells their stories and we, the performers, reinterpret on a stage right away.
What is my ‘why’ for coming here? I have a strong interest in Performance Arts and even got a degree in a discipline called Anthropology of Dance (yes, this thing exists — it’s not only about how people dance but also why they dance and what dancing means for the society in a particular time, place and culture). During this project I want to extend the area of my knowledge and learn about theatrical techniques and the impact of playback theatre.
And of course, a project like that is a also great adventure!
H E L L O !
I’m Stefania, a 26 y.o. girl from Romania, and I came here to experiment doing something more differently from the stuff that I already know. This means to satisfy my curiosity, to test my limits, develop new skills, to understand better the people and the European values, to become more aware, tolerant, and to do inclusion work.
But why have I chose Poland? I consider that it’s a thing more of people; people are making all the fun, all the gravity of the situations, painting in all colors the same event (…) and so on. You know that saying, “people are blessing the place”? Yes, when you do a recipe, the ingredients are more important than the shape of bowl in which you put them all. So, (for me) it’s a matter of people more than a matter of place.
And why this project? Because I saw it as an oportunit to learn more about active listening, understanding, tolerance, nonjudgement, empathy, and open my mental horizonts – opportunity to grow up on the path I desire and consider it’s good for me.
My name’s Laura. I’m 27 years old and I’m from Alicante, Spain.

I’m in a democratic school “przestrzen” in Cracow, where I can learn about educational alternatives. I enjoy spending my time with children and meeting their parents. I love community social work I like to analyse situations and connect with different social actors to take advantage of what each one can contribute and improve globally. I’m try to be positive in all situations and when a problems presents I look for solving ways.
I’m an active person that love doing a lot of different thinks like hiking, In my city there are a lot of mountains near where I can do it, playing music, I play ukulele and now I’m learning guitar, drawing, above all watercolours, or dancing all kind of music. And I want to share all what I know and learn all what I can.

Hello Everyone 😀
My name is Gabriel Souto, I am Portuguese from Lisbon and I am 23 years old. Lisbon has a lot of characteristics that make it similar to other European capitals, but smaller than most of them, so it has a lot of beautiful views in such less space.
I am going to Sokołowsko to work at the In Situ Foundation, helping to revitalize the Spa Park and giving environmental education. I am currently studying nature conservation, so it almost goes without saying that I love the environment. I love hiking in the forest, swimming in the sea, and every nature related activity you might think of.
I love music and all kinds of art, mostly I like rock music but nowadays what I am really into is electronic music. I love a good party so I can dance and have a good time. I also like sports, especially martial arts, I used to practice taekwondo for some years.
I feel really excited about this new adventure, and I am sure you are too. So, I hope I can meet all of you very soon, so we can change experiences and have lots of fun!

Hello from Georgia!
I’m recent graduate from English philology facility, and my undying love is literature. Although certain prejudice exists that bookworms prefer to stay indoors, I very much love to travel abroad. Last year I visited Italy and Germany, and in 2020, I can’t wait to go to Poland and meet all the existing challenges that lies ahead. I hope that won’t be my last stop!
Aside literature I also like teaching. One thing working with children is that you get to listen all the different point of view that you don’t usually meet in your culture.

Ciao! I am Carola, from Italy
Hi everyone! I am 19 years old and I had just started to study in the university when the coronavirus alert broke out, therefore I have experienced – like all of us – a very strange year. So I decided to break the routine and to do something different, useful and important to get new chances and challenges and to experience concretely and directly the democratic living in Europe and in the world.
So, here I am! For the next eleven months, I will be volunteering in the Free School Ursynow in Warsaw with kids and adolescents, thanks to the project co-founded by the European Solidarity Corps.
I hope we could all meet and know better, but meanwhile I invite you to seize all the possible opportunities and to get out of your comfort zone… Because world is beautiful out there!!

I love playing the guitar, being in contact with nature and working with children.
During the next eleven months I will be participating as a volunteer in the Active Education project from the European Solidarity Corps, with the support from Active Women Association.
Actually, I am living in Łódź. I will be volunteering in a forest school in Borchówka, from Fundacja Dmuchawiec.
Ciao a tutti! Dzień dobry!
I’m Giulia from Italy and I’m 25 years old. I’ve just finished the university, I’m graduated in philosophy and sociology, but I’m very passionate about education.
Above all, I’m a scout. Volunteering is a bigger part of my life, indeed. I love spending my time for the wellbeing others, walking in the mountain, reading books and writing, especially I’ve a passion for dogs. Funny thing to know about me: I’m learning how to play harmonica! 😉
For the next 10 months, I’ll volunteer in the democratic school “Droga Wolna” in Szczecin. It’s the first time for me in Poland! 🙂
I’m so glad to be part of this project of European solidarity corps coordinated by Active Women Association because it’s the adventure I was looking for. It gives me the mission I lost and the opportunity to discover the beauty outside my comfort zone.

Dzień dobry! I’am Marc from Catalonia
Hi everybody:) My name is Marc and I’m 27 years old. I’ve grew up in a little village that’s called Collbató very near to the magical mountain: Montserrat! I’ve finished my psychologist degree in URV (Tarragona) and I have also formation as a musician, but not complete at all yet. I like to play the violin, to sing in chorus (I’m tenor) and for now I’m beginning to compose my own music. Relative to the psychology I’m very interested in psychology health and how to develop all potencial that humans have inside hoping to become a present reality. I like to show my passions and to share it with children. I will try to do it in my free democratic school: “Bullerbyn”. During this period of my volunteer experience, (that’s a little break on my life) I I hope to improve my English and Polish (Yes, I can!) and my pedagogical skills with children. I think that time is also good for me in order to decide my profesional future that for the moment is focused to to finish my musical studies and to teach music: violin and language music to the children.

Can you feel the Magic of Life?
Life… Four letters and whole our being in one word. It’s fantastic how the understanding of it changes every single day.
In my 22 years of being alive and live in this gravity, I have felt most different experiences, and one of the most challenging is to be here in Poland during the Pandemic and doing something really important.
The main thing in life starts when you start to fly in your dreams but then you are making big steps to realize them.

The moment you doubt whether you can fly, you cease for ever to be able to do it.
