As a Teaching English volunteer you will be able to teach a variety of different people including elderly, children or adults. 

You will help with structuring the education programming according to the needs of the individuals who attend as well as the objectives of the NGO you are going to support. You should plan to lead lessons and educational activities for students who range in ability. English is by far the most common language being taught but if you are fluent in another language, and there is interest from locals to learn it, you may also be able to teach that.

The focus of your teaching will change according to the groups you're going to teach

– With children and youth, you can alternate theoretical lessons with recreational and/or sports activities in English

– With adults, you will focus on vocabulary to assist in a certain sector such as tourism, administration, health, and more, depending on their professional or personal needs

– With the elderly, you can have fun teaching them basic vocabulary and creating handcraft activities or other projects that make them feel active, loved, and useful in their community

This project is well suited to aspiring teachers who would like to extend their teaching skills abroad as well as any volunteers interested in a cultural exchange that involves teaching language to those in need. As you will be volunteering with the support of our local team and placement staff, you do not need to be a qualified or experienced teacher to participate in this project.

During your stay in Rome, you will be accommodated in a Camping. Located just outside the huge, historic center of Rome, your accommodation is a camping shifting towards eco-friendly practices, just 45 minutes away from the train station. Around, you can find everything you need: local coffee shops, supermarkets, ATMs, pharmacies and other utilities . 

The camping is 5 minutes walking from the bus stop. Fiumicino Airport is around 25km away, while Ciampino Airport is 31km away.

The camping is a green oasis, apart from the fast pace of Rome city center. Its wide spaces contribute to a chill, friendly atmosphere.
The camping mainly accommodate young people and international travelers that want to visit Rome in a more sustainable way.
WiFi is available in some common areas, but there are various green spots perfect to socialize or take some time for yourself. In addition to areas such as the restaurant, there is also a big swimming-pool - accessible from late May until September.
The welcoming and young staff is originally from Rome, so you can ask them the best tips and advices to enjoy the city and surroundings like a local! With us you can also rent bikes for free, explore the city and go biking through the archaeological parks.

- ALL SERVICES AND OPTIONS:
Buffet restaurant with fresh, local food (and veggie options!), free WiFi, swimming pool, 24-hour reception, laundry, green areas. You can also be very active, since there also are table tennis, billiards and a basketball courts. These are just a few of the facilities the hostel offers!
- SUSTAINABILITY:
The camping is shifting towards a sustainable model, solar panels are already in use and drinking water is available in the area close to the reception, to fight plastic use. The green areas are protected like a sanctuary, and separate waste collection is practiced. Moreover, the camping is animal-friendly!

Dorm Room Bedroom (Single) Bungalow Bedroom (Double)
Food & Beverages

We provide 2 meals a day, at the accommodation - breakfast and dinner. For both, you always have available more than one option, as well as vegetarian/vegan dishes. During summer, a food-truck is available in the area of the swimming pool, for sandwiches and quick snacks. The food is always fresh and includes Mediterranean cuisine as well as local and seasonal products. This way, you will have the chance to taste a good-quality, wide variety of traditional Roman and Italian meals.
