Italian children have access to school, but they lack support to continue their education and to follow their professional dreams. Our volunteers help different NGOs promoting several and diversified extra-curricular educational initiatives, with tasks such as designing and implementing completely new extra-curricular activities, support existing ones, teach a new sport, culture, language, instrument, game, arts and crafts or anything else the volunteer is good at.

Typically, the children with whom volunteers interact come from underprivileged backgrounds or are facing life-situations, that mean extra opportunities are limited. The driving goal behind this project is to foster inclusion, personal development and establish key life-skills within these children and youth. Volunteers will support this by assisting with homework, organizing activities, helping with craft and art activities, and assisting with any other work that needs to be done at the organization.

Volunteers will be embracing that ethos by acting as a positive role model. They’ll also be part of expanding how these children think of the world, as interactions with different nationalities and cultures are something that many have not experienced before.

Volunteers also have the opportunity to teach English to the children through fun games or simply by interacting with them to improve their spoken English. During the school holidays, volunteers may also help with outside activities including trips to the beach and games. Sometimes, also the local team need supports with tasks in the office and the coordination of the activities.

Volunteers do work with different initiatives depending on the need at the time and can expect to work with youth who vary in age from 7 to 18 years old.

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 practised. Moreover, the camping is animal-friendly!

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.
