About the workproject

We need 4 volunteers

We own and operate a number of English Language Cultural Centres in regional Italy. We offer "native / mother-tongue" English speakers with a passion for Italy the opportunity to experience the "real" Italy by living in and becoming a part of small town community Italy. Our Cultural Exchange experience is designed to fill the need for native English speakers in small town Italy and enables our volunteers to share their English language. Our Volunteers are required to do a maximum of 30 hours a week work in our Centres, ranging from teaching our Direct Method English program (really easy conversational based and no teaching experience necessary!) to manning the centre during festivals and during the day. We provide you with your own apartment (sometimes shared with one other person) in the centre of a medieval town with all utilities covered. We also provide a mobile phone with local number and data. Some of our centres have cars which are at your disposal. OUr programs run from September to December, early January to the week before Easter and the week after Easter to mid July. This means you'll need to be available for up to 90 days and we prefer to provide consistency in our Centres so don't usually consider anyone able to commit to less than this. As you're provided with your own accommodation we don't provide food, but it is extremely cheap to eat in small town regional Italy, most of our local bars charge only €1 for a coffee!! Looking forward to hearing from other Italy lovers and sharing this unique opportunity with you!!
