Make a difference - Live and work this summer with excited and motivated students in Torun, POLAND, the beautiful UNESCO-designated medieval city situated on the Wisla!
In conjunction with UNESCO - the United Nations Education, Scientific, Cultural Organization - and the Polish Ministry of Education, American volunteer teachers are invited to participate in a unique English language and cultural exchange program.
The program emphasizes reading, conversational - oral, and written English language experiences within an American cultural context, and introduces American teachers to the culture, history, traditions and people of Poland. High school students come from all over Poland to participate. Two weeks of instruction are followed by a week of touring local cultural sites. Cost of the program is modest.
Torun, for hundreds of years known as "the queen of the Wisla" (Vistula River), is a medieval town founded in the 13th century, with ruins of a Teutonic castle, and a Centrum dating to the middle ages with preserved walls, gates, townhouses and granaries. It is the birthplace of the scientist Nicholas Copernicus and site of a modern university bearing his name. Torun boasts a rich cultural history celebrated in its architecture, galleries and museums. During the summer, music, theatre, and film festivals are often hosted. The City of Torun, a "friendly" city, is a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site.
