Kapraluv Mlyn has been a centre of non-formal volunteering activities of youth for twenty years and there were thousands hours of volunteer work invested during its reconstruction into the Scout Environmental Education Centre. In the autumn 2013 Kapraluv Mlyn started hosting EVS volunteers with the aim of creating a stable environmental volunteer centre.
We have hosted 20 volunteers through the EVS so far and we have developed a balanced activities scheme for long term volunteers which focuses on their personal development and gaining skills in the field of environmental education, nature conservation and other fields like management, work with media, crafts. In July 2015 a new straw house for volunteers was opened next to Kapraluv mlyn, which significantly add to the comfort of volunteers and enable them the experience of living in the eco-friendly house.You can see also what our volunteers do on their facebook page.
