The world congress (UK, Universala Kongreso) of the Universal Esperanto Association (UEA, Universala Esperanto-Asocio) will be held in Nitra in Slovakia this year.

The organisers are looking for young Esperanto-speaking volunteers to help organise the congress. Most expenses will be paid.

See https://www.facebook.com/groups/esperanto.grupo/permalink/10153705188930289/ or https://www.facebook.com/uk2016/photos/a.1537629189783328.1073741828.1515914525288128/1685645398315039/ (in Esperanto).

My translation:

Young volunteers for the 101st UK wanted!

If you:

  • like traveling, are young (between 17 and 30, inclusive), speak Esperanto, and come from a European Union country or a neighbouring country
  • would like to help organising the 101st Universal Congress of Esperanto (UK 2016), the biggest Esperanto event of the year, obtain unique experiences and unforgettable memories,

we invite you to volunteer in Slovakia for 14 to 59 days (according to your preference and availability)!

We will ask the European Union for monetary subvention towards this volunteering as part of the European Volunteer Service. The project will cover, among other things, your cost of lodging, food, insurance, and travel. In addition, you will receive a small stipend (pocket money).

You can find a signup form at http://bit.ly/UK2016evs

Sign up by the 17th of January 2016 at the latest, but the earlier, the better.

If you have any questions, write to "UK 2016" on Facebook or email info@ikso.net .

And feel free to boost the signal / republish the announcement. (Which I'm hereby doing :D)

The list of eligible countries is (in Esperanto):

  • ĉiuj landoj de la Eŭropa Unio (Aŭstrio, Belgio, Britio, Bulgario, Ĉeĥio, Danio, Estonio, Finnlando, Francio, Germanio, Grekio, Hispanio, Hungario, Irlando, Italio, Kipro, Kroatio, Latvio, Litovio, Luksemburgo, Malto, Nederlando, Pollando, Portugalio, Rumanio, Slovenio, Svedio) krom Slovakio;
  • neeŭropuniaj programlandoj: Islando, Liĥtenŝtejno, Makedonio, Norvegio, Turkio;
  • Rusio, Okcidentaj Balkanoj (Albanio, Bosnio kaj Hercegovino, Kosovo, Montenegro, Serbio), orientaj partnerlandoj de EU (Armenio, Azerbajĝano, Belorusio, Kartvelio, Moldavio, Ukrainio), sudmediteraneaj landoj (Alĝerio, Egiptio, Israelo, Jordanio, Libano, Libio, Maroko, Palestino, Sirio, Tunizio).

So if you feel reasonably confident (you don't have to be a perfect speaker!), and fulfil the age and residency requirements, consider volunteering with the UK if you have two to eight weeks of time :)

Ĉar la Eŭropa Unio ne donas mono al Usonanoj kadre de sia Eŭropa Volontula Programo.

Bonvolu plendi al la Eŭropa Unio, ne al la organizantoj de la UK.

La organizantoj povas pagi la volontulojn nur tial, ke ili ricevas monon de la EU.

Estas la sama kialo kial maljunaj homoj ne povas ĝui tiun eblon - ĉar la EVP nur donas mono al junuloj. La UK-LKK devas labori sub la kondiĉoj de la EVP se ili volas ricevi monon de ĝi.
