- About us
As a volunteer in Romania you will be asked to work with children of various ages, helping to improve their education and acting as a role model to encourage good values and behaviour, both in and out of the classroom. Gap year volunteers can teach their own classes or work as a teaching assistant, using interactive activities to engage with students and improve their English. You may also be working at local care homes running fun and educational activities to include sports, drama and arts & crafts.
Schools in Romania are increasingly interested in providing music lessons for the students so volunteers teaching in Romania can get involved in these lessons if they have a special interest. Volunteers will also be running sports sessions and arts and crafts activities in the afternoons for the children who live in the school dormitory or the community.
This Romania volunteer project is perfect for anyone who wants to experience life at the heart of Eastern Europe, while helping children in genuine need. The students are always excited to see new faces so your efforts can have a big impact on their lives and learning.
This volunteer teaching role requires no qualifications or previous experience, simply an enthusiasm to teach and willingness to be creative and provide fun and interactive lessons. Any familiarity with Hungarian language is useful but gap travel volunteers will be supported at all times by both school staff and our local coordinator, so it is not essential. You will be staying in a beautiful area, well placed to visit famous cities such as Brasov and Sighisoara during your free time.
Romania is an undiscovered gem of Europe, where the Carpathian Mountains provide a stunning centrepiece to a country dominated by medieval castles and rustic village communities. Romania’s beautiful natural landscapes and rich history make it an alluring destination for gap year travel.
Our Romania volunteer projects are based in Harghita County in Transylvania. The region has a distinctive character with dramatic medieval castles and scenic villages making it a great place to discover rustic Romanian culture while you volunteer abroad.
Transylvania is best known as the setting for Bram Stoker’s Count Dracula and the region is rich with Gothic architecture and medieval villages. Harghita County is very mountainous and the Carpathian Mountains are a star attraction for outdoor enthusiasts.
Volunteers can either fly into Bucharest or Targu Mures and be met at the airport by one of our in-country team..
This volunteer project lasts a minimum of two weeks. To give you greatest flexibility in your volunteer experience we give you the option of extending your stay on a week-by-week basis.
