The Polish Voluntary Labour Corps is a nation-wide state-run organisation supervised by the Ministry of Labour and Social Policy. One of its aims is to reach out to young people aged between 15 and 18 who have dropped out or are at risk of dropping out of education and training to help them complete their compulsory education and to obtain a vocational qualification in a given profession. Each young person is assisted and supported by an educator. Among others, educators organise cultural activities, sports, events, etc. to stimulate the development of young people's interests as well as their personal and social skills.
