Casa Voluntary Work Morocco

Why choose Casa Voluntary Work Morocco?

Casa Voluntary Work is, as its name suggests, an association composed of volunteers.

We aim to organise social activities which take a variety of forms. In particular, we organise international workcamps of languages which give the opportunity to children and young people to learn modern languages. We also organise environmental workcamps as well as workshops of gardening and painting in public spaces.

CVW’s most important activity is organizing international short term voluntary projects (work camps) in Morocco and sending volunteers to projects abroad. In addition, CVW coordinates long term voluntary projects of 1 to 12 months.

Unique month in Casablanca With CVWMorocco

My month at Casa Voluntary Work has been unique. I didn't just teach French language to my classes but I got friend with my amazingly clever students! Aged from 5 to 21, we built up together improving and funny lessons: grammar and dialogues on actuality topics with medium and advanced classes, and playing based on basic vocabulary with children.
The staff has always been supportive and caring, giving important advice when needed and freedom of choice on the lessons program.
For what concerns my hosting family, they've been lovely with me, treating me like a daughter and a sister and almost turning me into a Moroccan!
I would recommend the Teaching Program as it makes you know the local culture and the kindness and hospitality of people; moreover, it gives you a chance to discover the beauties of Morocco.

The real Morocco with Casa Voluntary Work

Casa Voluntary Work Morocco gives you the opportunity to experience the real Morocco and to emerge yourself in the local culture. The stuff is very helpful and tries to accommodate the needs of every volunteer. The program also requires you to be flexible and to reassess your values and priorities.
I taught English to elementary school-age students and upper high school-age students + adults. Both students and teachers benefit from the classes. The students were very grateful, positive and interested to learn and very interested to tell you all about their country and culture. It is convenient to bring learning material - as much as you can - since you will probably face different language levels in every student’s group.
I stayed in a great hosting family that took care about everything.
I had the chance to meet local people, travel across Morocco and eat the delicious local food.

Casa Voluntary Work is definitely the best way to travel! :)

I was lucky enough to take part in Casa Voluntary Work in July 2015. And I can say without any doubts that it was life changing experience.
I was teaching English to the group of teenagers with pretty good Intermediate level. And I cannot describe how lovely these children are! Attentive, respectful, active and with a big willingness to learn!
I would recommend to all future volunteers to be prepared with hardcopy materials, as these children are ready to study very hard! This is the first thing that has amazed me.
The second one is how organizers were treating us: kind, caring and interesting people! They made us feel at home away from home! My hosting family was an incredible example of Arabic family, and made me feel a part of it. I can say freely that I experienced Morocco very deeply and fell in love with the country.
I strongly recommend this program to everybody. Get out from your comfort zone and experience Morocco!
Casa Voluntary Work is definitely the best way to travel! :)

Alumni Interviews

These are in-depth Q&A sessions with verified alumni.

Why did you choose this program?

I chose the "Teaching Modern Languages for Kids" program with CWVM because I wanted to play the role of a teacher to gain a better understanding of the pros and cons of this profession.

Moreover, I was looking for a country that could offer a different perspective on the world; Morocco is an Islamic country and I am fascinated by their habits and traditions.

What did your program provider (or university) assist you with, and what did you have to organize on your own?

My program provider was available whenever I needed advice and he provided me with all of the materials I had asked for - French and English grammar books, for example.

I had to organize the activities and lesson plans myself, but that gave me the freedom to prepare classes according to the kids' level of competence.

What is one piece of advice you'd give to someone going on your program?

I would recommend preparing the lesson plan and the games for the whole month before the start of the lessons, and eventually adapt it to the students' needs.

What does an average day/week look like as a participant of this program?

I had classes four days a week, from 9am to 2pm. The day would start with the beginner level students and consisted of basic vocabulary and games. At 10:30am the intermediate students came to class, and we reviewed the most important grammar rules, verbs and pronouns, and writing. At 12:30pm I had advanced class and we discussed current topics and issues, and prepared some sketches.

Going into your experience abroad, what was your biggest fear, and how did you overcome it? How did your views on the issue change?

My biggest fear was not to be able to give proper lessons, I had never been a teacher before and it was clear to me what obstacles I would be facing in the classroom.

In the end, it was much easier than I had expected, as my students really liked me and we built relationships based on mutual respect and entertainment.

Why would you recommend this program to others?

I can assure you that this program is amazing, and it allows you to plunge into Moroccan culture. You're always in touch with local people, and my host family was really welcoming.

Moreover, the schedule allows you to travel on the weekends so you can relax while enjoying the beautiful landmarks of the country (for example, I went to Marrakech, Ourika, Martil, Chefchaouen, and Essaouira).

I loved Morocco so much that I went back to visit my host family twice in the past six months!
