Summer Club Leader in Romania

Volunteer as a Summer Club leader for children in care homes


The care homes on this summer volunteering programme try to create supportive and familiar homes for disadvantaged children and young adults, where they are encouraged to make the most of their educational opportunities and improve their future prospects. 

Your gap year summer role: Volunteers leading Summer Clubs will work in groups with other volunteers where they will lead activities for the children. These activities could include all manner of things and it is up to the group to work as a team to lead their club. This could mean for example English lessons and arts & crafts in the morning and football in the afternoon. Each group is asked to act as mentors, teachers and friends to the children. 

There are three different Summer Clubs and each works with children from three care homes at a time so the numbers will be around 20 children per club with volunteers working together as a group.

Those volunteering in Romania should anticipate that communication can be difficult with the children in the first few days due to the language barrier. However, GapGuru volunteers always find a way and note that an English-Hungarian phrasebook is extremely useful as Hungarian and not Romanian is the first language in the Transylvania!  

Your gap year summer experience: This is a great opportunity to spend your summer in Romania improving the lives of disadvantaged children in a developing country. By taking part in this project, volunteers can gain experience of working with young people in a friendly, responsive and rewarding environment. This voluntary programme offers opportunities for personal development and allows you to make a difference to underprivileged children in Romania.

Volunteers on the Summer Club programme will be part of a group and live on a room share basis in the same studio apartment building with the rest of the group.
