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.
We will be hosting 30 minute information sessions on Wednesday 18th April 2018, 2.00 – 3.30 pm, Headingley campus, Macauley Building Ground floor Room 10. This will be an opportunity to learn more about the project and to meet previous volunteers.
