Good Mountain


“You are the salt of the earth… You are the light of the world” (Mt 5:13-14)

Good Mountain is website created entirely by volunteers as the main platform for volunteers during World Youth Day in Krakow, and a tool to organize projects and events preparing for WYD.

It is available for all registered volunteers of WYD Krakow 2016 who are at least 18 years old and for coordinators of the Organizing Committee of WYD Krakow 2016.

The mission behind the creation of Good Mountain is forming environments of youth and of people involved. It’s a place bringing together volunteers, giving a feeling of community and building a positive image of each of them (through among others the Profile of each user) as people giving testimony of faith in their disinterested work and in their efforts on behalf of others, as expressions of care for the world around them and for the other person.

How does Good Mountain work?

Through the Work Bank it enables smooth and fast communication of important information about WYD, placing notices in the form of tasks to perform, and thanks to integration with the registration system for short-term volunteers, reaching volunteers interesting to us on the basis of the experiences and skills they have.

On the basis of profiles it focuses and creates an entire environment of WYD volunteers, sharing with others their experiences, achievements and involvement with WYD, and the overall contribution and results of the work, which will create a real “Good Mountain”.

It’s also a promotion of volunteers as proactive people, of volunteering and of World Youth Day 2016 in Krakow. Besides profiles, on the main page it will be possible to see the Good Mountain, or a graphically growing “mountain” with a counter showing the hours that a given volunteer dedicated in working for the good of others, or WYD.

Creating this website we wish to show that with small steps great things are formed. And to the enormity of good that surrounds us, we can add our own so as to multiply it.

Logging In

Logging in to Good Mountain takes place with the help of the email address given during registration for short-term volunteering.

Attention: because the website wolontariusze.krakow2016.com is entirely independent from the registration system, each volunteer, before they begin to use it, must create a password. This takes place by clicking a link in the e-mail invitation, which was sent to the volunteer’s inbox. After giving a password and accepting the regulations, the account becomes activated. The link sent in the invitation e-mail is active for 72 hours. In case the time expires you should give your e-mail address to the website  in order to receive another invitation. In case you forget your password please contact us by e-mail at .The e-mail address and password given in the Good Mountain website will also enable logging in to the mobile application for volunteers.

The “Volunteer” mobile application – Communication during WYD

 The communication tool will be the “Volunteer” mobile application, working for Android and iOS, directly correlated with Good Mountain.

Thanks to it, each volunteer will have permanent access to such resources as: news, urgent and essential information related to their work and to current events of WYD, emergency phone numbers, guides, as well as access to the full accommodation database. The volunteer will also have access to their work schedule, as well as constant contact with their coordinators, team leaders and other people belonging to their group.

An important element of the application will be formational support with specially prepared spiritual contents.
