Volunteering or how to get involvedThroughout all its activity, the Mihai Eminescu Trust received the help of volunteers, especially foreign (from Great Britain and Germany), who greatly contributed to the implementing and development of some of the projects. We are grateful to Karin Faltlhauser from Germany that worked on the interior design of the Furriers’ Tower. Presently, the tower houses a permanent exhibit of artisan objects and mister Ioan Nistor’s leather workshop. For the academic year 2013-2014, Aliosha Merz, a German volunteer, is working on a series of presentation movies promoting the foundation guest houses. The Mihai Eminescu Trust will soon initiate a Volunteer Program in which any local or international do-gooder can apply to volunteer in the foundation projects.
The Mihai Eminescu Trust Foundation is surrounded by beautiful landscapes, Transylvanian villages with welcoming people and vibrating communities. The Foundation is offering volunteering opportunities and unique experiences. Volunteers will be living together with other volunteers in a Transylvanian village, in an amazing natural setting, where centuries old traditions have been kept.
You will be part of a great working environment in a prestigious and experienced organisation. Most of the times transport, accommodation in traditional houses and the cost of meals will be covered by the Foundation. In case that none of the volunteering programs are appealing to you, please consider that we are open for suggestions. You can write us a message at: firstname.lastname@example.org
