What makes a United Planet Short-term Quest unique?
United Planet’s Quest volunteer abroad programs are 100% cultural immersion experiences. United Planet Quest programs run year-round and are available to individuals and groups of all ages, skill levels and nationalities. We have no doubt it will be life-changing and provide lasting memories. Read on for more detailed information about volunteer opportunities in Romania.
All Quests include:
- Flexible start dates and lengths of stay (1-12 weeks)
- Personalized attention from Coordinators
- Local home stays or on-site lodging options
- Exciting excursions, cultural activities and/or language lessons
Situated in Eastern Europe, Romania is a country rich in natural resources as well as history and culture. The orphanage program is located in the village of Valea Screzii, a rural area in the foothills of the Carpathian Mountains. The local way of life has changed little over the last hundred years, with horse and carts still a regular sight on the roads. Volunteers in Romania can explore this area and learn more about Romanian life by helping out in the orphanage. You can visit nearby castles and villages, and take a stab at learning a few Romanian words and phrases (lessons provided)!
