Bona Fides Association and European Voluntary Service Lužánky have just opened 8 calls for European Solidarity Corps volunteers for school year 2024/2025 and are looking for Polish participants (18-30yo)! 

Dates: 15.09.2024 – 14.09.2025
Duration: 12 months
Place: Brno, Czech Republic
Apply: ASAP

We offer both specifically focused placements (Circus; Art Department; Technical Department; Environmental Education; Forest Kindergarten) as well as working with children in our Luzanky – centre of leisure time in general with mixture of activities (art, sport, kindergarten, music, handicrafts etc.).

6 ESC placements are directly in Luzanky and 2 placements in our partner organisations (Siska forest kindergarten & Lipka – school facility for environmental education). 

General description of volunteering project in Luzanky

There are 8 ESC volunteers working at different places on individual projects, meeting every week on common meetings with the coordinator and from time to time with all the colleagues to evaluate and plan the project. Luzanky hosts and coordinates ESC volunteers also  in other organizations (focused on environmental education, preschool education etc.), so all hosted and coordinated volunteers will meet during the project and can visit workplaces and events of each other. 

The volunteers are working 5 hours a week together with the coordinator on tasks connected with their integration into Luzanky and presentation of their presence in our organization. Those tasks will be mainly related to the promotion of Solidarity corps program, and volunteers stay in Brno. Common trainings organized by Luzanky outside Brno are possible. 

Volunteers can visit some of the courses and events organized by Luzanky for free (circus training for adults, ceramics, yoga etc.)

Days off and holidays: volunteers have 2 days a week free + 2 days per month of vacation. While working occasionally on weekends they have extra days off during the week. 

The placements are: 

  1. Lidicka – Art Department 
  2. Lyska and Legato (Circus LeGrando) 
  3. Atelier Lávka (movie making, recording etc.) 
  4. LUSK (Lidicka – Technical Department) + Liška – centre of leisure time 
  5. Lata – centre of leisure time 
  6. Louka – centre of leisure time 
  7. Šiška forest kindergarten 
  8. Lipka – environmental education 


Volunteers get their pocket money and food allowance monthly (at the beginning of each month), and they are provided with a card for Brno public transport. 


Volunteers live in rented flats, two volunteers per one room. Distance to your working place from the flat can be around 30 minutes by public transport, even a bit more. Getting affordable accommodation in Brno is very difficult in recent years, so please be ready for described conditions of accommodation if you apply for our project.
