Slaska Wojewodzka Komenda Ochotniczych Hufcow Pracy (Poland) it is one of the sixteen provincial VLC organizations. The Voluntary Labour Corps (Polish - Ochotnicze Hufce Pracy, OHP) is a state-run organisational unit working to prevent the social exclusion of young people. In line with the current Act on Employment Promotion and Labour Market Institutions, the Voluntary Labour Corps is a labour market institution supervised by the Minister of Family, Labour and Social Policy that performs state tasks directed towards teenagers over 15 years of age, and the unemployed under 25 years of age, that include employment services, counteract social marginalization and social exclusion, as well as tasks related to education and upbringing.
Its activities take their inspiration from the legacy of the Youth Labour Brigades established by decree of the President of the Republic of Poland of 22 September 1936. During its long history, this organisation worked relentlessly for young generations of Poles who needed state support to start an independent life and meet the challenges of the modern labour market.
To reflect the changing social situation, the OHP continues to transform the format of its activities and organisational structure, enhancing its methods of youth training and education and labour market services. As a result, the OHP demonstrates a potential which makes it capable of undertaking new challenges in active social policy and its aspects relevant to young people. The OHP structures consists 721 organisational units and branches operating throughout Poland.
Depending on the type of activities delivered, these include:
→ 217 shelter and educational units, where young people can supplement their general and vocational education;
→ a network of 504 bodies implementing labour market initiatives, where young people may benefit from vocational counselling and guidance, job matching services, and vocational training and information.
All of these facilities are open institutions which implement the agenda for the local community in cooperation with local self-government authorities, employers, associations, and foundations operating in a given area.
The beneficiaries of the activities delivered by the Voluntary Labour Corps include:
• young people (aged 15 to 17 years) from troubled, dysfunctional, unemployed, and poverty-stricken families who fail to continue compulsory schooling and are not in education, struggle to complete school, and need to acquire vocational qualifications;
• individuals aged 18-25, including jobseekers or those who wish to be retrained or are unemployed; school graduates, and students.
To address the needs of young people over 15 years of age who are not in learning and have no lower-secondary school education, the Voluntary Labour Corps has teamed up with local self-governments and employers to deliver educational initiatives in non-standard legal formats that enable young people to complete practical, on-the-job training.

Being a labour market institution, the Voluntary Labour Corps implements tasks directly related to professional activation, counteracting unemployment and the social marginalisation of youth. Its initiatives include job matching, vocational counselling and information services, workshops promoting active job search, organisation of training seminars, and labour market programmes.
In addition to the above audience in need of special support, beneficiaries of the OHP activities include youth seeking employment, students and school graduates.
