  • Description

    Description

    My name is Mónica and I have created an educational alternative focused on transmitting the importance of values and environmental awareness. We get to do this through experiences of linguistic immersion in different stunning locations in Cantabria (Spain).

    We are a small but hard working group of people with a common goal that strongly believe in the need for a change. This is our second year and we are very excited to have more people joining the team so, if you fit in the description, be ready to come to Spain!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You would enjoy free accommodation and 2 meals a day in a family home in Northen Spain, in a small town called Boo de Piélagos. It is well connected to the city of Santander (Cantabria) in an absolutely stunning environment, in a 3 minutes drive to surfing beaches of the Natural Park of Liencres.

    If the stay is to participate at our Immersions (dates above) it could be in similar locations (Youth Hostels) by the area. During the summer we set up a camping for the months of July and August in Socabarga - Villaescusa.

    We are looking for people of various profiles that believe in our project of Environmental Awareness for children. They need to be able to speak fluent English as we work in English Immersion with the children. When the children are not involved (creation of materials, free time with other monitors) we are more than happy for you to practice your Spanish and get immersed in our beautiful culture!

    Work examples:

    > Creation of Materials:
    - Chicken Coop
    - Hydroponic systems
    - Dry-toilets
    - Tent repairs
    - Furniture
    - Compost bins
    - Educational activities
    - Portable garden

    > At the Immersions:
    - Co-monitor role (there are paid monitors that have the leading role and are responsible for the children)
    - Children animation
    - Accompanying at workshops/activities
    - Baby sitting / child care
    - Camp duties

    > Backstage:
    - Website improvements
    - Talented videographers / video editors / photographers
    - Social media busters
    - Youtubers ;D

    We are looking for responsible, dynamic and enthusiastic people that are interested in helping with children and eager to learn. Teamwork skills are essential.

    We work in English Immersion so this is not a great opportunity to learn and practice Spanish.

    Workawayers suitable to join us will preferably have a background in Teaching, Psychology or Environmental Science/Education related studies to help out in our Immersions or creating sustainable materials to be used in School Workshops and/or at Camping Days.

    We look for people that share our values, are nature lovers, open minded, optimistic and resourceful.

    The workaway experience is an open door to work with us. After, volunteers are entitled to apply for a job position (European passports or Working Visa holders) to join our Camps and/or Workshops.

    We have flexible dates that include accommodation and 2 meals/day in exchange for voluntary help on the project (max 5h/day). Beautiful family home in the town of Boo de Piélagos or other worker's place in the city of Santander.

    It's also possible to participate at our Immersions (dates below) where it would be full board (3 meals and 2 snacks) plus accommodation with the children and other monitors.

    Types of meals may include vegetarian and vegan profiles.

    Timetables may be flexible and adaptable in case of need (studies or other reasons).
