Volunteering with Diverbo

Volunteers can enjoy a free week at one of our English-speaking villages. Our venues host English “talkathons” every week and we sponsor native English-speakers to be the protagonists!

A fun and rewarding experience is offered in exchange for your English conversation.

What's involved?

In each week-long program, a group of 15-25 volunteers (from Australia, Canada, England, Ireland, Scotland, USA, etc) “populate” one of our beautiful hotel resorts and provide conversation in English, through a diverse daily schedule. Germans/Spaniards adults are there to practice and improve their English in a natural way.

Activities change every hour to keep it fun and engaging. One-to-one conversation periods are mixed with mealtime discussions, group sessions and evening entertainment.

“Talk your way to a free stay. And a cultural experience you will never forget!”

Who's it for?

The program represents a great opportunity for all native English-speakers who want to spend a week abroad enjoying culture, conversation, and connecting with people.

All native English-speakers are encouraged to apply, regardless of profession, ethnic background or religion. If you are fun, chatty and enjoy meeting people, then you could be the perfect volunteer!

Where can I volunteer?

Our volunteering vacancies are at stunning locations around Spain and Germany. The venues are diverse and offer the chance to get off the beaten touristic track, to beautiful areas of countryside. Our volunteers are transported to their course venues from hub cities like Madrid, Munich and Frankfurt, so it’s a great chance to combine an interesting city-visit with rural and cultural elements.

WHY should I volunteer?

Anna Johnston

(teen participant), Ireland, summer 2012

“I had such an amazing time at Monfrague! … I found that the Spaniards really improved speaking English and by the end of the week they had a lot more confidence with the language.”

Suzanne and Ted Yerdon

(parents of teen participants), USA, summer 2012

“Over the course of the past several months while making arrangements for our three children to participate as volunteers I was very impressed by how thoughtfully the program was organized and your attention to details… Congratulations for a program well-run and for providing a fantastic development opportunity for our children.”

Craig Martin

(Participant), UK - August ‘11

“Pueblo Inglés is quite simply brilliant! I met so many lovely, friendly people and still keep in touch with some of them. The settings are beautiful, the food divine, the activities great fun and the company great. I would recommend it to anyone and will be doing many more myself!”

The Guardian

It’s a symbiotic deal, which gives English speakers the chance to trade in their native language abilities, for bed and board in a Spanish village

The Boston Globe

A way to know the country by meeting the people. I’ve now got 20 Spanish friends

Abroad

The Spaniards leave the program with greater conversational mastery of their second language, and the volunteers get enriched in other ways
