Romania


Romania English Camp

We are excited to offer you the opportunity to volunteer with Andreea's Club in Alphard Educational Centre, which has welcomed volunteers from Leeds Beckett University for several years. The project provides an amazing all-expenses paid trip to Romania in return for your time teaching English! The club provides an enjoyable experience for Romania children to spend a week learning essential language skills run entirely by volunteers. The students are aged between 6 – 18 years old. 

Volunteers are recruited from all over the world including England, Europe, America and many more countries and many return repeatedly as they enjoy the experience so much. The camp operates on a weekly schedule, Monday evening – Sunday morning and consists of English classes, sports, trips and fun activities such as face painting and discos. The children arrive on Monday and have a graduation ceremony on Sunday morning, then the whole process begins again the next day with the new arrivals.

Volunteer Role(s): 

We are seeking volunteers who are enthusiastic with a passion for working with children and young adults. No prior experience is required as training is provided. You will be expected to ensure that lessons are fun, using games and other creative activities to engage the children to improve their English. We are looking to recruit a group of 20 – 25 volunteers who can commit to a minimum of 3 weeks up to a maximum of 11 weeks.
