  • Description


    Hello! If you are looking for a family, you speak very good English and like the idea to become a member of our family, we are looking for a girl that can spend time with our teenagers and speak English to all the family!

    We live in Marina di Cerveteri, a small town near the seaside and very close to Rome; trains are very frequent and Rome St.Pieter train station is 25 minutes far from Marina di Cerveteri.

    My name is Sabrina, I’m a chemist and my husband Domenico is an IT engineer, we work in Rome. Giulia (15 years old) and Massimo (12 years old) are going to school. Giulia loves drawing, painting, cooking and listening to music; Massimo is extroverted, loves reading comics and loves playing videogames and with Zoe. Giulia and Massimo are easygoing.
    Zoe, our medium size dog, was born at the beginning of June 2018 and she is now a playful young dog.
    Giulia can understand and speak English well. Massimo’s level of understanding is enough to communicate with you, he is a very talkative and extroverted child.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Culture and family life of Italy is what the volunteer can experience living with us. We love good food, good icecreams and home backed cakes, we are a cheerful family, we are friendly and welcoming to guests.
    If you like, I'm happy to help you learn Italian.

    The workaway experience is a learning experience per se. When you live in another country for some time, you experience another culture (the Italian culture in our case) and you see your mother culture from a different point of view.

    During Summer time we ask you to spend the day with Giulia and Max and have fun together. You can plan your day together. There is an open air swimmingpool near our house or you can bike to the beach. If you are interested in coming during Summer time, please get in contact with us for more information.


    You may be busy with Giulia and Massimo (...and Zoe) some days and other days you can have all day free. We can organize the weekplan together, always with 25 hours a week at most. The days you will be busy, Massimo is back from school at around 14.20 by school bus and you could have lunch together and spend the afternoon together. Giulia is back home later. We also need you to walk Zoe in the morning and in the afternoon.
    Saturday and Sunday you have all day free.

    ...ALL THE TIME...

    We would like our children be exposed to English. I would like to improve my professional English too. We would like to host a workawayer who speaks fluently English, so no problem if you don’t speak any Italian; we are looking for a talkative and nice girl, willing to stay with Giulia and Massimo, enjoying the time she spend with them. I will be happy to help you learn Italian if you like, but it is very important that when you are with us, you only speak English.
    We value activities that improve creative thinking, imagination and communication, like manual activities, spend time with friends and in general building your own free time.
    We ask you to be always “present”, not only with your body, but also with your mind when you are with the children. We ask you not to spend time chatting using your mobile phone while you are with the children: it is very important to us. If you feel the need to be always connected using your mobile phone, please be aware that we are not the right family for you.

    What else ...

    We love the opportunity to have cultural exchange with volunteers, at the same time we think that is not good for our children to change volunteer too often, so we would like to host a girl that is happy to stay with us minimum for 2 weeks or longer. Please, ckeck the calendar for availability.
