  • Description

    Description

    ACCOMMODATION and ALL MEALS provided, LGBT friendly! Short term (3 NIGHTS) project. (PAY: 20. EUR/night, meals and accommodation provided).

    We are a language school with four branches in Vilnius and one in Kaunas, with around 80 employees in total. We actively participate in workaway, especially in summers.

    At the moment we are looking for native English speakers (preferably aged 21 and older), also non-natives with no less than B2 in English who would be able and willing to work with kids/teens aged 11-19 in a Valentine's Day camp and who could stay for THREE NIGHTS with us in Anykščiai area (that is a remote rural area, the closest small town Anykščiai is about 16 kilometers away, so lots of nature, zero clubs for parties).

    If you are natively English, American, Canadian or Australian (or a non-native with great English), love teaching and a good laugh, are relaxed and independent, can communicate with very different people and do little moaning, then do contact us. After the event we'll gladly provide you with a certificate and references for your future projects if needed (backdate also not a problem).


    POSITIONS AVAILABLE

    Camp Teacher in Valentine's Camp, 2020 February 16 (noon) - 19 (noon), 3 nights. (PAY: 20 EUR/night, transport costs Vilnius-campsite-Vilnius or Kaunas-campsite-Kaunas covered, meals and accommodation provided, 60 EUR for the full camp (not including transport costs))

    Camp Teacher in Spring Camp 'RE-SPRING', 2020 April 14 (noon) - 17 (noon), 3 nights. (PAY: 20 EUR/night, transport costs Vilnius-campsite-Vilnius or Kaunas-campsite-Kaunas covered, meals and accommodation provided, 60 EUR for the full camp (not including transport costs))


    JOB DESCRIPTION

    The responsibilities will include independently (using our resources or the internet) preparing activities and organising seminars/workshops in English to kids and teens in a fun and entertaining way. The responsibilities will NOT include moaning and nagging and being lazy. We're expecting you to be quick witted and flexible, so that we can trust you with a group of 20 kids/teenagers to manage during activity time. Sense of humour, ability to relate and talk to teens as well as show initiative in organising all types of activities would be very useful. Please bear in mind that the campers are usually quite fluent, expect them to be Intermediate or Upper-Intermediate which makes communication rather easy.

    Have a look at the preliminary timetables below; they can be easily modified. If you have some activities in your head that you believe would work out great in the camp, let us know and we'll include them in the schedule. The crazier the idea - the better; teens love teachers who're slightly nuts!

    Once we agree you'd be joining us, we'd decide which activities you could and would like to cover, discuss their contents and ask you to send us your preparatory materials a bit in advance just to see how it would look in the context of all the event or help you out if you're struggling with some idea or its realisation.

    We will provide you with accommodation (a room on the campsite, shared). The place is rural but all you need is there - cooking facilities, hot water, electricity, gas, internet. The transport costs from the airport or wherever you arrive to the campsite and back will be covered by us.

    In Anykščiai camps you'll be on the same campsite with all teachers and teenagers (around 20-35 of them) all the time for 3 nights so be prepared for lots of social interaction. It would be great if you could prepare at least 5 group games as an activity you can use when you run out of ideas, just to be on the safe side (can be outdoor or indoor activities, most important that they do not require too much stuff and preparation time).

    If you have questions, do not hesitate to ask. We'll arrange a Skype or messenger interview for all candidates before we decide and discuss your arrival details.

We are not a typical boring office-like school; we allow wearing casual clothes at work, we have three dogs in our reception and it's OK to have tea and cookies during class time. Like, seriously, be objective and contact us only if you are at least a bit above 'average fun' person. Aaand also have in mind - LGBT community members are very welcome in our schools!
