We are a non-formal education NGO from Romania. One of our biggest programs is a project, called GROW, in which we host internationals to deliver workshops on personal development, in English to high school students from Romania.
About 3000 teens participate in this project each year and about 100 internationals come to teach for 3-6 weeks in English. We offer accommodation and food. The work schedule is flexible, totaling a part-time. You have to pay for your flight and have pocket money. We provide a 6 days " International Train The Trainers" conference (15th of June - 21st of January in Romania) for which we cover all the costs and where all internationals gather and learn our methodology, receive the manual by which they will deliver the sessions and get to know each other.
Currently we are looking for students or young professionals (20-28 years old) who would like to have a "work away" between mid January - end of February to be a trainer on personal development with us.
You will participate in a 6 days "train the trainer" conference with all the other international volunteers and thus benefit of training on the project's topic and intercultural experience. During your 3-6 weeks stay in Romania, you will already have your network of other trainers from different cities who can host you when you travel to see that city and also by working with teenagers who are so passionate about this project, they will give you a city tour and show you all the cool places to visit.
You will also learn a lot about the youth in Romania and will practice English together with them and spend time informally as well, when you will be sharing about your culture and they will share about Romanian culture.
We can guarantee a life-changing experience. The teenagers will love you! We have been doing this project for 7 years now and the experience you will have working with these motivated and sponge-like youth, will increase your self-confidence and courage to dare for more in life.
Check our website and see it yourself :D
You need to come to Romania starting with 15th of January to participate in our " International Train The Trainer" program to understand the manuals you will teach from and understand more about Romania, how teens are, and also to meet the other internationals who will be trainers/teachers in different cities.
You will be teaching / delivering the workshops from our project manual for groups of 15-20 teens in a city in Romania, part-time for 3 to 6 weeks depending on your availability.
If you are interested we can have a skype and explain to you in detail this opportunity and what are the benefits, challenges and intercultural experience you will have.
We are familiar with workaway and have already had volunteers for our project this summer and it was a win-win.
Dormitory - sharing a room with 1 other international volunteer as well. The room has everything needed: bathroom, hot water, cooking area, internet. You will receive money for 2 meals/day to spend where you please, or vouchers to eat at specific restaurants which supports the project.
