The participation fee partially covers costs for weekend meals, transport, insurance and administrative costs associated with preparations of the events (coordinators salary, office rent, paper material) and material for trainings and evaluation meetings of our organizers.
PARTICIPATION FEE is one of key incomes of the Weekends project. It allows us to run it, maintain its quality level and develop it further.

WHY THE PARTICIPATION FEE WAS RAISED UP TO 450 CZK?
We were doing our best to keep the participation fee at the original price for a long time, but due to the increasing costs of organizing the events, we decided to increase it. However, we didn’t forget about the students, for whom we have reduced the price of the fee to 380 CZK.
We want to continue doing great voluntary events for you, and this requires many, sometimes “invisible” costs (administration, office rental, organizers training, planning visits to new organizations, web administration and other). We believe that thanks to the increased fee, we can provide you with many quality experiences and also help other non-profit projects that need it.
Please take into consideration that cancellations cause troubles! Think twice before applying for the projects and please take it seriously. It is really hard to find “last minute” new volunteers nowadays.
But of course, we can not oblige you to go for the weekend and we understand if you have to cancel for serious reasons.
But, since there have been a lot of troubles with massive cancellations just a few days before the projects, we decided to make the cancellation policy more strict.
We even had to cancel some of the weekends due to critically small number of volunteers in the past season. Obviously all included parties were disappointed, especially the NGO that was counting on our help and preparing the event with high responsibility and expectations.
- if we receive your cancellation 11 days and more before your Weekend project (Tuesday, week and a half before the event), you are entitled to receiving 100 CZK from the fee back
- if we receive your cancellation 10 days and less before your Weekend project, we keep the full participation fee
- in case you decide not to ask for the 100 CZK back (first case of cancellation – only you cancel and do not specifically ask for the part of the fee back), we keep the whole fee and use it for further development of the Weekend project and Tamjdem as such
- and of course we will be grateful for that…
