Project work

Volunteers will help to co-create the workshops in English for local children and teenagers. Activating kids and teenagers, providing a cross-cultural learning experience for them as well as English language environment. It will be done through games, workshops, sports activities, excursions, discussions, etc.


The age of kids is 10-16 y/o. There will be a local monitor who is responsible to propose and organize activities. Each day, approx. four to six hours workshop/activities will be given in the mornings.


The aim is that volunteers communicate with children in English, to encourage them to overcome the fear of speaking in a foreign language through non-formal educational methods and setting. In the first two days of the workcamp participants will spend time together to know the program and prepared and propose some owns workshops in relation to their capacity, interest or ability.


We want that the volunteers can be involved and take part in the all project. If you like dancing, you can propose to teach a dance; if you practice handball, organize a competition, etc.


It would be a bonus if volunteers could speak a little Spanish but it’s is not essential.
