My name is Mónica and I have created Newpa, an educational alternative focused on transmitting the importance of values and environmental awareness. We get to do this through experiences of linguistic immersion in different stunning locations in Cantabria (Spain).

We are a small but hard working group of people with a common goal that strongly believe in the need for a change. This is our second year and we are very excited to have more people joining the team so, if you fit in the description, be ready to come to us!

You would enjoy free accommodation and 2 meals a day in a family home in Northen Spain, in a quiet neighbourhood in the suburbs of Santander (Cantabria) called Monte. It is well connected to the city and about 16 minutes walk from the nearest beach, La Maruca. A beach where you can surf and is in the route Cabo Mayor-Costa Quebrada, that starts in Santander's Lighthouse and ends at Liencres Natural Park.

If the stay is to participate at our Immersions (dates below) it could be in similar locations (Youth Hostels) by the area. During the summer we set up a camping for the months of July and August in Socabarga - Villaescusa.

We are looking for people of various profiles that believe in our project of Environmental Awareness for children. They need to be able to speak fluent English as we work in English Immersion with the children. When the children are not involved (creation of materials, free time with other monitors) we are more than happy for you to practice your Spanish and get immersed in our beautiful culture!

This course, apart from the summer camp (July and August) we will have “Immersion weekends” the following dates:

October 18th-20th

November 15th-17th.

December 14th-15th (single night weekend “Christmas style”)

January 31st to February 2nd

February Break Immersion 24th-28th

March 6th-8th

April NO

May 8th-10th

June 19th-21st (Last one – Camping in the Summercamp place)

For the Immersion weekends you would be expected to arrive on Friday, work until Sunday and then you can stay and enjoy around untill Wednesday morning.
