    We are a belarusian NGO, the main office is located in Minsk.

    We have been working with children and youth since 1989, and run more than 50 youth clubs in different parts of Belarus nowadays. We arrange many local and international voluntary projects, linguistic camps, UN modelling conferences, youth festivals and other educational activities.

    Each summer we organize linguistic camps for children and youth in Minsk Region and invite international volunteers to make interactive English lessons and give presentations about their homelands.

    This year we are having 2 camps: 1st one is from 30.06.2018 to 11.07.2018 and 2nd one is from 15.07.2018 to 26.07.2018. You can come either for one camp, or for both of them.

    The camp area is located in the centre of the village Uzda, one hour drive from Minsk city centre. We will stay in a school building and will therefore have access to all the areas connected to the school, such as a big play yard and a sports hall. Nearby the camp area you will also find a lake, stores, bars and restaurants if you would feel the need for it.

    Everybody will live in the same building, and each room will host maximum 4 volunteers or staff members. There’s one big common bathroom with showers which will have a time schedule for when girls may use it and when boys may use it. We will provide you with towels and bedsheets, and you will have access to a washing machine.

    We provide food as well. There will be 4 main meals served each day with snacks in between. We will also provide with snacks in the teachers’ lounge if you get hungry. There you may also find a water boiler, a coffee machine and a fridge to store your own food/snacks.

    We will make a visa support letter for you.
