Short-Term Volunteer Projects in France
Participating in an international short term volunteer project (so called Workcamp ) can be an exciting prospect. It is an interesting and meaningful way to travel with purpose and spend 2-3 weeks in a foreign environment. Working and living together with other young people from around the world provides an excellent opportunity to make many new friends, learn about unknown places and culture, gain new skills and experience. Your time, energy, and enthusiasm can make a difference in areas where help is really needed.
Discover Germany in an English Conversation Holiday
The Pueblo Ingles program has been described as an inspiring cultural adventure, an enriching personal journey, and a unique, human experience. Each week 15-20 Native English speakers are sponsored to stay in beautiful hotel resorts in different regions of Germany so they can converse with German professionals who want to improve their English. Accommodation, food and drinks are provided in exchange for your conversation. It's a unique and enjoyable experience and the best way to learn about Germany if you don't speak the local lingo.
