This Meetup introduces a brilliant program for which we are seeking native english speakers to volunteer for an expenses paid, 6-day cultural exchange program in Spain with Spanish professionals.
The program brings together 18 Spaniards and 20 English speakers and is about immersing the Spaniards in the English language through one to one sessions, group activities, excursions, and walks in the countryside. 

4-star hotel accommodation, full board/drinks and internal transfers are provided over 6 days, however you are expected to fund your return flights to Madrid and any expenses outside of the six-day program. Since 2001, we've had thousands of volunteers take part in this unique experience, and we have been featured on CNN, The Daily Telegraph, and Frommers. We will have 50 programs this year, with nearly 1,000 english speakers participating!

The only requirements are: you must be 23 or above, a native English speaker or fluent in the english language with a clear accent, and sociable.
Your will have 3 choices of location: the 4-star country hotel at Gredos in Avila, complete with tennis courts, a sauna and an indoor pool, our rustic medieval villas in Valdelavilla, and the 4-star Sheraton hotel next to a 15th century monastery in Rascafria in the Madrid province.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
