Be sure to be sure before applying to the program!
We are truly grateful that you are considering coming to Spain to join us at Pueblo Ingles.
You might be asking yourself how much preparation and planning you will have to do to help the Spaniards. Luckily our program is designed in a way that allows its participants to just slip right in and go with the flow, with no stress and with no hassle.
All of the daily activities will be organized for you, and you should never have to look ahead to anything further than your next activity or meal. Obviously though, our Anglo volunteers have to be dedicated to the program, and abide by the following rules:
We have a ZERO TOLERANCE policy regarding the above rules. This also applies to your stay in Madrid if you are staying in the group hotel before and after the program.
Would like to become a TV star? Below are the steps of how to become a Teen Volunteer!
You will be given a deadline to confirm the date and to book your travel. Please respect these dates because it affects the total numbers and the application requests that are coming in
Throughout these stages we will be in contact with you via email and forward you to your Volunteer Zone where you will get all the updates on your application process.
We love to receive applications from people who have been Anglos before. If you are a veteran (i.e. someone who has volunteered previously) just select your dates and your request will be processed with priority. Unfortunately however, even being a veteran we cannot always guarantee a place in your program selection.
If you are a returning Teen Volunteer, you do not have to complete a further application form
Once you are sure you want to be a Teen Volunteer, please complete our application form. We encourage everyone to make the most of their trip to Spain by doing two consecutive weeks. If you do so, you will not need to come back to Madrid between sessions. When completing the application form, please take the time to respond to the questions carefully. Look at the questions first, work on them on a separate document, and then copy and paste it into the application form.
Wait to hear from us to accommodate you the programs you have selected. The response time in the high season can be up to four weeks!
If you suit the profile we are looking for, we will offer a date for your Pueblo Ingles adventure. At this stage, you have to confirm that you are available, and upload a signed consent form and medical details. You can do this via Your Personal Program Page.
You can now confirm your travel information. Due to the high demand of applicants, we can only secure your spot for a limited time. Please respect the deadline given and ask for time if needed.
Unfortunately past experience shows that missing travel info from Anglos normally means no-shows.
Once we have correctly received your travel details, we are counting on you! A few weeks before the start of the program, we will send you a reminder and make sure you are in touch with your group.
If you are a minor, you must take the Welcome Pack, which includes: airport pick up, hotel drop-off, the cost of a shared room in the group hotel in Madrid, lunch, city tour, dinner, and breakfast on the morning of your departure to the program. If you are travelling with a friend, we will try to make sure that you share with them in the group hotel in Madrid. However this cannot always be guaranteed.
On the morning of the program, your parent/guardian will have plenty of time to drop you off at the hotel and go to the adults Welcome Reception.
If you are over 17, and choose not to purchase the Welcome and Departure packs, you would be responsible for making your own way to the hotel and meeting points.
On the day of the start of the program, you will leave with the rest of the Anglos from the group hotel and should arrive at the venue by lunchtime. You will probably be sharing a room with a Spanish student of your same age and gender, if not we will try to pair you up with a friend if you are travelling together. However this cannot be guaranteed.
During the program, mobile phone use is discouraged and permitted only during free time. The hotel phone will not be available at all times, but there are set times of the day (after lunch and dinner) where parents can call the hotel. There is one computer with internet available for use by the participants. There is usually wifi available at the hotel reception.
If you are leaving on the last day of the program, you will be taken straight from the venue to the airport. If you are leaving the day after, our counselors will stay at the group hotel to chaperone the Teen participants. All minors not leaving on the last day will have to purchase the Departure Pack. This includes: dinner, shared room in the group hotel and airport transfer and drop-off the next day. The counselors will take you to the airport and accompany you up until you go through airport.
We hope you had the time of your life! If you need a letter to confirm your volunteer hours, let us know! Be sure to stay in touch with us and hopefully see you next year!
