Nowa formuła wolontariatu w Fundacji Nowy Staw

With the New Year European Meeting Centre - Nowy Staw Foundation prepared a new offer for volunteers. Soon, we are starting with realization of new projects, exchanges, local and international conferences, where we will need volunteer's help. To make our offer more attractive we decided to establish a new quality in the work with volunteers.
Starting with this year we want our cooperation to be more project and task – like. What does it mean? We set up difference between two sections, which you can cooperate and work in:
International Youth Cooperation – here we mean international projects lead by European Youth Cooperation Centre: international exchanges, seminars and training courses, local initiatives etc. In this section each of you would have possibility to create his/her own exchange project and learn how to manage the project: starting from writing application, through realization and evaluation.
Citizen education – in this section everybody, who is interested, will have the chance to take part in training course about e.g. voluntary work, help with organizing a conference or lead European lesson in school.
European Meeting Centre also established a new e-mail address, especially for volunteers: where you can write in case of any questions, difficulties, proposals for cooperation.

"United in diversity - multicultural Lublin"
European Meeting House in Nasutów had once again the opportunity to host between 12.27.2010 and 01.03.2011 participants from international exchange of New Year's Eve "United in Diversity - multicultural Lublin."
Along longtime with german partner German-Polnishe Jugendakademie and Belarusian partner Association Dziedzich European Meeting Centre-Nowy Staw Foundation organized a Polish-German-Belarusian youth exchange combined with the common New Year's Eve fun.
During the project, participants had opportunity to visit places associated with multiculturalism Lublin: Grodzka Gate Theatre-NN, Protestant Church and the Orthodox Church at Ruska Street in Lublin. Moreover, while in Lublin, young Poles, Germans and Russians jointly visited the Majdanek concentration camp, and participated in a thematic workshop prepared by the German volunteer. Being in Lublin participants in groups of mixed nationality have to solve city game tasks and so they have the opportunity to discover the unknown corners of the city of Lublin and history of the city.
The culmination of the exchange was a fun retro-style New Year's Eve until dawn.
