First testimony from our hosting project Opportunities ahead in Rybnik!
Read Kristina’s article and find out what she gained during the project!
Project was funded by European Solidarity Corps 🇪🇺 💸 💪
Kristina’s sending organization was Záhrada – Centrum nezávislej kultúry
I was, as I heard, the first volunteer from Slovakia and I hope not the last. I spent 8 wonderful months in a beautiful industrial Polish town called Rybnik.
My hosting organization was Zabytkowa Kopalnia IGNACY (Historical Mine Ignatius). It was a museum focused on industrial heritage and steam engines, they often organized many events and workshops for public.
Going on this volunteering was the best idea I ever had. Those 8 months enriched me incredibly, not only I learn new skills and languages, but I also got to know a lot of new things, new cultures, but I also met a lot of good people.
Thanks to great colleagues in my organization, I felt good every day, and it was a pleasure to go to the organization every day. My duties were diverse, of course I helped guide visitors around the museum and helped with events and workshops. I know several graphics programs, so creating posters or editing videos was also part of my duties. Thanks to good management, I always had something to do and felt useful.
Of course, my volunteering was not just work work work, it was an incredible round of various events, trips and new experiences. I visited many small or big cities in Poland.
Kristina was a wonderful volunteer! Thank you for your attitide and positive energy 😋
We wish you many luck in the future in your personal and professional life 😊
