Project Review

This is a high-energy and really fun position.  GeoVisions provides the materials; you provide the personality to liven up a family class or dinner conversation!  Find out first-hand how a Brazilian family lives day-to-day.  Sometimes there are opportunities to take part in family activities and to meet extended family.  Plus, they can show you landmarks and  hidden gems. Volunteer 15 hours each week in exchange for free room and board.  Weekends are normally free to experience the culture by traveling around Brazil.  Conversation Corps volunteers are placed in any one of 16 Brazilian cities: Blumenau, Brasília, Caxias do Sul, Curitiba, Duque de Caxias, Florianópolis, Guarapuava, Londrina, Manaus, Maringá, Niterói, Porto Alegre, Recife, Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo and Vitória. Imagine living in any one of these amazing Brazilian cities and receiving free room and board from your adopted host family.
The Need:  Volunteer 15 hours a week helping your host family with Conversational English.  That's it.  Many Brazilian families want to learn English or get better at speaking English through conversation.  They are willing to provide a private room and 3 home-cooked, healthy meals each day.
