After reading the CV and Motivation letters, the selection group will make a choice, considering the interest of the volunteers – sports, willingness to work with young people and the reason presented to have chosen the particular project.

We will choose those volunteers, who can bring something of their own experiences and culture, to enrich hosting project and local community.
