The Kosciuszko Foundation invites American teachers of all subject areas and levels, American college/university students, and American high school students who are at least eighteen years of age prior to the start of the camp, to apply for participation in a unique three week educational and cultural exchange program in Poland. We also encourage Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) and pre-service educators to apply. Applicants need not speak Polish or have Polish ancestry to apply to participate in the Teaching English in Poland Program.
Children under the age of eighteen are welcome to join a parent, guardian or relative as a "peer tutor."
Please complete an application for each child. The Polish Director will determine the fee for the camp and tour for those children who attend the camp as a "peer tutor." Acceptance of underage applicants is at the discretion of the Polish Director and American staff leader.
The Teaching English in Poland Program (TEIP) is currently organized and conducted by The Kościuszko Foundation Poland, under the auspices of the Kościuszko Foundation in NYC, with the endorsement of The Polish National Commission for UNESCO (Zalecze Camp only).
