Eurodesk is an international network providing European information to youth and youth workers. Introduced a few years ago, the regional information centre Eurodesk has been been functioning in Szczecin. Its consultants are ready to answer all of the quarries on the projects concerning European voluntary work, youth exchange, working conditions and studying abroad, as well as on all issues important to young, active citizens of Europe.
Thank to the internet, we have access to interesting information from the whole Europe and the ability to contact the consultants of Eurodesk from every European country. That is why the information provided by us is valid and cross-sectoral. We strongly encourage you to visit our premises, where we will attempt to provide information adjusted to your personal needs.
You can visit us at the premises of Sekretariat ds. Młodzieży ( the Secretariat for Youth, room 330) from Monday up to Friday, 7:30AM – 3:30PM. You can also message us at: firstname.lastname@example.org, or call us at: 91 42 10 292

We run Eurolessons in schools
Eurodesk is more than just office work. If a school group shows interest, we can run an Eurolesson on any topic (usually lasting about 1½ hour, i.e. 2 class hours). Our offer is addressed to all kinds of high schools. The lessons are free of charge, with utilizing such active methods of learning as: teamwork, brainstorming, quizzes etc. In the year 2016, we are running a special Eurolesson “Papers for careers”, during which the participants can learn, how to emphasize their qualifications with the aid of the Europass documents and how to assess own skills. They also become familiar with an online editor allowing to create CV in a very simple way. Lessons are ran as a part of the nationwide project, about which you will learn more on our site.
Proposed by us topics of Eurolessons:
- EUROVOLOUNTEERING – the lesson focuses on the opportunities concerning social work abroad. Voluntary work in a foreign country is an opportunity to acquire new skills, create new acquaintances, try yourself out in difficult situations, improve your second languages. During the lessons, pupils attempt to answer the question: what is volunteering? They analyze most important topics concerning voluntary work abroad, and become familiar with selected voluntary projects held in foreign countries. Finally, they learn where to seek the information about the topics discussed in class
- EUROSTUDIES – applying to European universities is still considered to be an offer directed exclusively towards the top students or the wealthy – while since the year 2004 the graduates of Polish high schools are accepted into foreign universities on the same terms as the citizens of other countries. The recruitment, secondary language proficiency, scholarship, jobs available for students, living expenses and the formalities concerning the stay – these are the most important of the topics discussed during the Eurostudies lesson
- EUROJOB – this Eurolesson focuses on the subject of employment in the European Union. During the lesson, pupils become aware of what one should focus on before setting off to a job in EU, how to prepare, what to do in order to avoid dangers which one may stumble upon while working abroad in a EU country. The pupils discuss the advantages of working abroad, create list of matters important to anybody who wants to stay in a foreign country and come up with solutions to problems which one may experience while working abroad
- EUROACTIVATION – the most important lesson concerning the European Year of Citizens. Its aim is to encourage youth to various forms of social activity (especially on the European level). The lesson touches on youth policy, the sources of youth information, local and international projects
- EUROOPPORTUNITIES – during the lesson, pupils become aware of what it means for them that Poland is a member of European Union; they participate in a quiz, learn about basic topics covering employment, studies and voluntary work in Europe. Pupils also become familiar with programs funding youth operations and youth projects. They design own projects and learn, how to receive subsidy for them.
