Brief overview

Make the Difference in a Child's Life. An enchanting and picturesque land where past and present rub shoulders, Romania is a nation of medieval cities, painted monasteries and towering mountains. Her people are likewise captivating, having survived a tumultuous history and a recent revolution with grace and fierce pride.

You're needed now to volunteer in Romania and care for needy and abandoned babies, or teach English to teens in school classrooms. No matter the circumstances of their birth, youth of all ages understand the nurturing touch and kind words of a caring adult. You can contribute to their life-long development! No special skills are required - families and individuals of all ages can contribute to childcare and teaching projects.

We work with local partners to help meet the special needs of at-risk children at St. Nicholas Childrens' Hospital and to teach conversational English through Vaslui Department of Education. Work one-on-one with playful kids and serve as a resource for English lessons in classrooms and small groups.

Essential Services in Romania

Global Volunteers works with social services and educational community partners to greatly expand impoverished, disabled and orphaned childrens' security, nutritional, health, educational and social resources. Since our Romanian development partnership began in 2004, our community projects have focused on at-risk and disabled children. As an essential link in a long chain of volunteers in Romania, you can help deliver essential services to children in these ways:

  • nurturing and stimulating under-developed and disabled children
  • helping establish and maintain community gardens
  • demonstrating effective hand washing
  • teaching English to elementary and middle school students
  • promoting girls' education
  • maintaining and repairing living facilities for disabled youth

 Romania Free Time Options

There is ample time after the work day to enjoy the many educational and cultural attractions in the Barlad area. Visits to Transylvania at the foot of the Carpathian Mountains to see the cities of Brasov and Sinaia are especially popular on the weekend. Near these cities you can also hike the towering slopes of the Prahova Valley and visit the legendary castle of Count Dracula. On a trip to northern Moldavia (southern Bucovina), you can visit the spectacular "Painted Monasteries." Locally, you can shop in nearby towns or hike the countryside. You can also attend a football (soccer) game, as this is the most popular spectator sport in Romania.
