Aid to Ukrainian students and employees at UP
If you are interested in helping Ukrainian students and employees at UP – for example with interpreting and translating, or providing psychological or legal advice – please fill out this form, or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
We recommend sending general financial aid via certified organisations such as the Czech Red Cross, People in Need, Caritas Czech Republic, Memory of Nations, or UNICEF. Financial help is currently the priority; material aid for logistical and organisational reasons will be provided later also by the certified organisations above.
More information on the current situation can be found at upol.cz/ukrajina.
Informational Memorandum for providing advice via the UP Volunteering Centre.
We believe that students should be active citizens, and volunteering represents a great opportunity to change the world around you. Our Volunteering Centre is the first Czech university centre to unite active students and arrange volunteer opportunities for them. The Centre helps UP students and employees to become acquainted with the opportunities organisations are offering, with the organisations who cooperate with volunteers, and to gain experience in coordinating help to others. What does our work involve?
- we support volunteering as an opportunity for self-development and gaining experience
- we coordinate requests for volunteering and offers to volunteer for and by UP students and employees
- we educate in the area of expert, legal and personal questions related to volunteering activities
- we register and evaluate volunteering activities of UP students and employees
