In accordance with the mission of Kapraluv mlyn Scout Environmental Education Centre we prefer volunteers who are interested in nature conservation, environmental education, sustainable technologies and leisure time activities for kids and youth. We consider the EVS project as a way to share our knowledge. That is why open-mindness, willingness to learn new things and discipline are the qualities we are asking for.
