Help provide young adults who grew up in orphanages the skills needed to attain better-paying jobs.

Background

In 2017, 2018 and 2019, we partnered with Hope and Homes for Children in Baia Mare to provide training and mentorship to young adults who have experienced life in the institutionalized orphanage system and youth who currently live in small family homes. We focused on teaching English skills, computer skills, and soft skills.

In 2019 our volunteer opportunity in Romania, in collaboration with Hope and Hope and the European Union, is set to help facilitate life-changing educational camps in Baia Mare. The camps are a part of a 3-year program to provide low-income children with the inspiration and motivation needed to stay in school and enroll in formal education.

As a volunteer you’ll teach English, computer skills and life skills. There will also be a sport, art, and music component to the program.

2020 Dates:

We are offering four volunteer program dates for the Romania volunteer program. You can choose the time that works best for you.

July 3 – 12 ♦ July 10 – 19 ♦ July 17 – 26 ♦  July 24 – Aug 2

Each date option will include 6 volunteer days with travel to and from Romania taking place over the weekend.

Participate in immersive hands-on learning! We all know we learn far more from experiences than we could ever learn in a classroom. You will be a part of leading weekend excursions to encourage building practical skills and honing in on soft skills for young adults. These activities may include hiking, cycling, team building at the park, etc.

I really enjoyed my 2019 trip to Romania. The communication, support and exposure I received from my volunteer trip was excellent. I met some wonderful volunteers and children. The collaboration with Hope and Homes for Children in Romania was inspiring. I would recommend this organization if you want to have a holiday with purpose.

My volunteering experience with V2I in Romania gave me inspiration to effect positive change in many people's lives, including my own. We didn't just teach kids English and computer skills - we bonded with them as equals, formally recognized each person's unique and positive attributes, and inspired everyone to pursue their aspirations. This is something I will try to replicate in my own daily life, with all youths I meet.

Venture2Impact is an amazing organization with incredible leaders! I volunteered in Romania July 2019 and had a great experience. We taught children and young adults valuable skills such as english, computers and soft skills. The V2I team did a great job organizing a very safety-minded trip which I appreciated as a solo traveler. I highly recommend this organization and volunteering with V2I to make an impact on a very worthy community.

Frequently Asked Questions

What does the volunteer program include?

Simply put, EVERYTHING!

  • Round trip flights from your home city to Romania and back.
  • Accommodations while in Romania
  • All of your meals while in Romania
  • All transportation: we’ll pick you up from the airport, drive you around while Romania, and drive you back to the airport when it’s time to leave!

Can I bring my spouse/partner/child?

Absolutely! We encourage family/group volunteering. We consistently have volunteers who come with their spouses or children. If you plan to volunteer with your family, we can make special arrangements to make sure you’re comfortable while you’re still a part of the bigger team!

Does Venture 2 Impact accept donation matching?

Yes! We are verified with Salesforce.com, Microsoft, Netflix, Apple, Telus, Google and with any organization that uses  Benevity. If you’re a Salesforce employee or if your company uses Benevity, we can walk you through the steps to gain donation matching and volunteer grants towards your involvement in our volunteer program.

Can I fundraise for this volunteer opportunity?

Yes, when you commit to joining a volunteer opportunity, Venture 2 Impact will give you access to your own fundraising page on http://donate.venture2impact.org. Through our website, you can raise funds, donate towards the project and track your donations.

Why should I choose Venture 2 Impact?

Our model is grounded in connecting your skills with need that exists in communities that can’t access those skills or can’t afford to pay for them. As an educated and skilled professional, we believe that you should use your energy and volunteering time to share those skills and create a resilient community … rather than the alternative, which is usually going abroad to do something that’s not related to your skills at all (building a structure, painting something, etc).
