          Krystyna Stawicka

          Project Facilitation / Idea Development

          With a past related to media and film industry I have always enjoyed creative process and its colaborative fundaments. Now, within the social innovation sector, I have found new field where these qualities are needed and can be used for growth.

          Since 2012 I am full-time project pilot at KobieTY taking care of the idea development, creation, fundraising and coordination of international projects. When collaborating with international volunteers I often facilitate the creative process.

          Personally, my strongest interest lays in the exploration of human potential. While living, working and volunteering across Europe, Asia and Central America, I have learned a great deal and gathered new social perspectives. I see my work at KobieTY as an opportunity to unwind my coaching skills and be a part of social change.

            Marta Skorczyńska

            Trainer and Projects Coordinator

            I joined KobieTY in 2016, and I act here as a trainer/ facilitator and international/ local projects coordinator.

            In specific, I do evaluation of the learning process with EVS volunteers, intorduce to the topics of non-formal learning and multiculturality (communication, team work, etc) to different groups involved in our projects (mentors, teachers, local volunteers). How do I work? Observe and ask questions to create space for feelings and thoughts. I choose to work with kinestetic methods, such as drama and games (at the moment I’m in a Drama Method School for Trainers).

            I gathered my experience co-operating with NGOs in Poland and Portugal. Since 2009 I have been involved in non-formal education and social animation projects working with kids, youth and adults.

                I write almost everything we make public, present the presentations, talk to the media (in English). I also open doors and give free hugs.

                Aspiring young writer. Always looking for inspiration.
