Changing Worlds can offer the unique opportunity to work in this strongly independent Baltic state in Eastern Europe. Latvia is a warm hearted and beautiful country. The capital Riga is bubbling with life, it has some of the most beautiful architecture in Eastern Europe with narrow cobbled streets, plenty of shops and good restaurants, pubs and nightclubs.
However there is another side to Latvia and that is why you are needed.
English language is an international language that Latvians want to learn - you can offer this help.
We send volunteers to work in kindergarten where children are taught in the Waldorf method of teaching.
We send volunteers to work in a small language school where all you have to do is turn up and chat...yes it is as simple as that. Latvians rarely hear spoken English (not even on the TV!) and for this reason would welcome some practice.
We send volunteers to act as support workers in social care centres working with children and young adults.
You can combine all three placements.
