Type: Teaching & Education, Working with children,
This volunteer project is based in Northern Albania among the Albanian Alps. Volunteers will be working in community schools in villages nestled in valleys between the mountains that cut through the clouds, preserving a simple and traditional way of life.
Most secondary pupils start to learn a second language at about ten years old. The role of the native English-speaking volunteer is to teach conversational language skills. Volunteers receive some help from the local teachers regarding lesson preparation and content. The pupils of the villages have good attitudes, limitless enthusiasm and curiosity for learning.
Volunteers will work around 4-5 hours a day from Monday to Friday. This program offered only in the summer, during the months of June, July, and August. Accommodation is in a homestay and three meals per day are provided.
