If you love food, wine, and the seaside (who doesn't?!) then GeoVisions has a program designed especially for you. The GeoVisions Walk and Talk program in Italy places volunteers with a host family in Italy (placements throughout Italy are available). You will be assisting the family with childcare part of the time, and tutoring them in English part of the time. It's the perfect combination of an Au Pair program and a tutoring program.
Volunteers are asked to devote 20 hours a week to assist with childcare and conversational English lessons, in exchange for free room and board! Families provide a small stipend. Spend your free time exploring the area and experiencing the culture around you.
Program fee starting at US$549.
