    Volunteers needed

    Holiday time does not have to mean being idle and bored. It’s a chance to

    gain new experiences outside your classroom. Sports events, scientific expeditions, wildlife adventures - everything is possible if you have the will to do it. This information is for those who would like to participate in ecological projects and to learn more about nature and wildlife.

       The ‘My Future’ organisation was started recently. Our aim is to protect the

    unique places in our country - their ecosystems, animals, and plants. In the future, we are planning to take part in international projects too.

       Currently ‘My Future’ is undertaking a project to save threatened wetland

    species across the country and we are looking for brave and smart students who

    would like to offer us their help. It is going to be our first experience of accepting teenagers on to our projects and we hope it will be a success.

       At the moment, we have twenty vacancies for school students aged 16 and

    over. The jobs focus on taking care of the injured and abandoned animals, assisting wildlife vets, animal and bird watching, and taking part in the promotional and educational events of the organisation.

       All the first-time volunteers will be supervised by our veterans. There are

    environmental specialists from all over the world who have been working with us for years. They will teach you how to use our environmental equipment for water and soil sampling and how to treat the polluted water and soil. Needless to say, all our volunteers are provided with free clothes and boots appropriate for working around lakes, bogs and other wetlands. All the volunteers are also provided with food and drinking water. Sleeping in tents in wetland is not very comfortable or safe, so our volunteers are accommodated in local inns, carefully selected by our managers according to our hygiene and safety standards. Free doctor’s services are available at any time as well as transportation to the city hospital in case of emergency. There are no special health requirements for candidates, except that everyone should be vaccinated against the few (not many!) infections you may come across in the wetlands.

       It’s worth mentioning that, by joining the team, you’ll enjoy a multilingual

    and multicultural working environment. If you cannot boast a very good command of English, do not worry - three quarters of our volunteers speak English as a foreign language and we never experience any problems because of this! For any further information, visit our website. There you can also fill in an application form to become a ‘My Future’ volunteer.
