General information about voluntary service:

Volunteers will have free weekends (and fixed holidays during the Christmas and Easter) so they can explore the city more, go home or travel around Croatia. If they will need to work some weekend (because of specific activities), they will get free days during the week or more holidays. During the summer, the weather will be great so they can visit the famous Croatian seaside. During the winter they can visit hill in Zagreb and enjoy in various winter activities. Through the project, volunteers will have health insurance, but it is important that they have European health card with them before and when they are coming to service. Once, when volunteers finish their voluntary experience, they will receive European certificate Youthpass as a proof that they have been on this project.
