    Description

    To help and to explore this wonderful country,Morocco, Our schools in Casablanca ,Berrechid and El Jadida welcome you to Morocco! In our schools we ask you, our guests, to simply have short conversations with our students. We host native or fluent speakers of English or French to give the opportunity to our learners to be in a comfortable environment to practice and build their confidence in speaking.

    We hope you are responsible, committed, hardworking and respectful. If you enjoy speaking with people and want to explore this wonderful country far from partying, drinking, and staying out late, this is a great Workaway for you.

    We offer the opportunity to our volunteers to explore the south half of the country once a month (Marrakech,Kasbat Ait Ben Haddou,Ouarzazate ,the Atlas Mountains , Toudgha gorges ,Merzouga dunes and Fes) We also offer a tour to the north half of the country (Rabat,Chefchouen (the blue city) ,Tangiers,and Assilah ).This is done in frequent, organized, cheap trips. Getting a chance to see the variety of Moroccan culture, and discover the real life of Moroccan families, customs and traditions.

    Sunday afternoon through Wednesday afternoon our guests are free to travel around if they’d like. Wednesday afternoon through Sunday morning is when guests are needed the most we need volunteers all the week if they don’t go on those organized cheap tours

    We host native or fluent speakers of English or French to give our learners a chance to explore a comfortable environment to practice and build their confidence in speaking.

    This host has been visited by a member of the Workaway team

    "Working with the school was one of the most humbling experiences I have ever had as a Workaway Ambassador. They took us in like family. All of the meals they cooked for us, the group trips around the country, and of course the classes consistently filled with interested, engaged learners made my time in Morocco the best Workaway experience possible. Thank you to everyone for an amazing opportunity to help mold the minds of these students, I will certainly be returning soon!"
