Is volunteer work with children in Romania for teenagers right for me?

This project is perfect for you and other teenagers who enjoy working with children. You’ll get to put your energy and enthusiasm to good use. It is also great if you want to incorporate volunteer work with supervised travel.


During this project, you’ll learn more about childcare and the importance of learning through play. This is especially valuable if you’re planning to study teaching or work with children in the future. You’ll also learn personal skills like teamwork and leadership, which are strong additions to your CV.


This High School Special runs over fixed dates during the summer. Our staff accompany the group throughout your stay so if you need help, they’ll be there to guide you. They’ll plan and join you on all social activities and weekend trips to ensure you get the most out of your experience.

What will I be doing during my project in Romania?

In Romania, you’ll work with children at kindergartens and care centres in that can do with some extra support. You’ll be asked to:


  • Teach English classes to improve kids’ language skills
  • Run fun, educational activities that encourage the children to learn through play
  • Assist with light renovation work
  • Learn about Romanian culture and traditions alongside other high school students

Here are the activities you’ll be involved in:


Teach English classes to improve kids’ language skills


English is an important skill in today’s world. Since the teachers we work with aren’t native English speakers, you’ll be able to provide them with extra support during English lessons. You can help teach the ABCs and basic words and phrases.


You can talk to the class in English and give the children the opportunity to imitate the way you pronounce words and phrases. You can also play games, sing songs, and read books with pictures to enhance their learning.


Run fun, educational activities that encourage the children to learn through play


Children learn better when they enjoy what they are learning. This is why you’ll focus your attention on classroom activities that are fun and memorable. You can:


  • Promote creativity, and teach colours and shapes through arts and crafts lessons
  • Teach ball skills, balance, and teamwork through sports
  • Run drama classes to improve confidence, coordination, and social skills


Assist with light renovation work to improve the kindergarten or care centre


Part of your project work will involve improvements to your placement. Depending on the placement needs, you might add a new coat of paint to the classrooms or design education wall murals like ABCs and 123s. You may even find yourself getting your hands dirty building a garden.


Learn about Romanian culture and traditions alongside other high school students


This project is focused on giving back to the community. However, learning about a whole new country and their culture is also a big part. Your supervisor has everything planned for you. They will supervise you on social activities and manage your itinerary so you and the other teens get to experience as much as possible during your time abroad.


There is also plenty of time for you to get to know your fellow volunteers including nights at your host family, social events, bus rides and more.


Where in Romania will I work?

Brasov

Your Childcare volunteer work in Romania will be based in the city of Brasov. At first glance, the city has a picturesque charm that you’ll fall in love with. With its cobbled streets and terracotta roofs overhead, it feels like you’re walking through a fairy tale. But there is still plenty of hustle and bustle in the city including open markets and side street cafes.

You’ll spend most of your day working at kindergartens or day care centres under the guidance of your project supervisor. You’ll assist caregivers and local teachers who are in desperate need of classroom support.

There is also plenty to see within Brasov and the Transylvania region. Your supervisor will include plenty in your project itinerary. So when you aren’t volunteering, you’ll get to explore with the other high school students. You’ll hike through the Tampa Mountains and visit Count Dracula’s castle!

What are the aims and impacts of childcare volunteering in Romania for teenagers?

The aim of this project is to support the education of young children at disadvantaged kindergartens and daycare centres. During your project, you’ll assist local teachers by preparing lessons and activities that encourage the children to learn through play.


Many of these centres and kindergartens are often overcrowded. This means that caregivers and teachers are unable to divide their time equally among students. Because of this, some students struggle to keep up in class and end up falling behind in their learning.


English has also become a vital skill in today’s world. By encouraging students to learn English at a young age, there will be many more job opportunities available to them later in life. With your help, they children can practice their English language skills and take part in new, fun activities that promote learning and education.

Vi mäter resultatet av vårt arbete varje år

Varje år deltar tusentals ungdomsvolontärer på våra projekt runt om i världen. Under deras tid utomlands bidrar de till att göra en långsiktig positiv skillnad i de samhällen där de arbetar. För att visa vilket resultat deras hårda arbete har, sammanställer vi varje år en rapport som heter High School Specials Impact repor.

För mer information om den insats våra ungdomsvolontär gjort under året, läs vår senaste rapport.


Mat och boende

Du kommer bo hos en värdfamilj i Brasov. Din värdfamilj kommer välkomna dig som en familjemedlem till deras hem. De kommer lära dig mer om deras traditioner och om den lokala kulturen. Vi tror att det här är det bästa sättet att verkligen lära känna kulturen i ett nytt land. Du kommer få en unik upplevelse av Rumänien. Under din tid i Rumänien kan du kan även komma att bo i ett gästhus.

Vi försöker alltid placera våra ungdomsvolontärer så att de delar rum med en annan Projects Abroad volontär eller praktikant, av samma ålder och kön. Ditt rum kommer vara enkelt men bekvämt, rent och säkert.
