Want to Spend a Year in Europe All Expenses Paid? Here’s How!*
* OK, for this to work this free year in Europe to work you’ll need to be a European Citizen and under 30. All good? Keep reading!
A few summers ago I rocked up in a tiny town on the border between the Czech Republic (in central Europe) and Poland.
Life in the Czech Republic looked a little something like this….
I spent a year working with children for the European Union and was technically deemed a volunteer.
Like anyone else on the programme, I was rewarded for my volunteering with a monthly spending allowance, free accommodation with other young people and free transport.
Working at the youth centre was the type of experience money couldn’t buy. Participants also get free language classes, so I’m proud to say I can carry a halting conversation about the weather in Czech these days.
