About the voluteer’s work in Bunkr How it works in the clubs and on street work (social services) We have 3 clubs (in Třinec, Bohumín) – you will work in both of them. Bunkr provides social services for clients. They are mainly based on conversations between social workers and clients. Another part of our work are the free-time activities (and this is a place for your own ideas, activities, etc.). You will be working on the shift (clubs Bunkr and Bunkřík and Streetwork) always with another worker. The worker is responsible for the shift process – please respect the worker and accept his/her instructions. When a worker speaks with a client, you take care of the other clients – do not disturb conversations.
