Do you have a passion for teaching and working with children?

This amazing project was created with the goal of helping to improve the English speaking abilities of the residents of El Porvenir. The program first opened its doors to the community in 2010 to provide completely free English ​classes for kinder​, ​elementary, teenage and adult students. The ​elementary age ​children​, grades 1-6,​ attend these free classes​ at three locations in the community. ​​The adult program is held in a designated classroom across the street from the public elementary school in el Centro (the centre of town), and preschool classes are provided at the public kinder. Volunteers can work with all age groups and should plan to work 4.5 days each week. As is common in many of the worlds poorer communities, an ability to speak English unlocks a new world of possibilities for children and opens up many professional opportunities for the working-age, often within the service and tourism industries. Access to English tuition is extremely limited for many residents, so this project offers free short-term intensive English classes to enable them to prepare for the job market, school exams, and to simply improve their future prospects.  

Goals of this Project:

  • Provide free English language classes to the residents of El Porvenir
  • Improve the future prospects of some of El Porvenir’s most impoverished people, and help them to break the poverty cycle
  • Expose non-English speakers to native English speakers in order to improve pronunciation and conversational skills
  • Enable inter-cultural exchange which benefits both residents and international volunteers alike.

Start Dates

This project is available year-round and programs start every SATURDAY. Volunteers can choose to participate for periods ranging from 1 week to 12 weeks. Longer stays can be arranged directly with the local team, but will be subject to availability and individual visa conditions.

Spaces on this project are limited and therefore subject to availability. Early booking is recommended.

Requirements

Love Volunteers welcomes all those 18 years and over who wish to help create a brighter future for children through the power of education. This project best suits those with experience and/or qualifications in the field of childhood development, languages and education, though volunteers who simply wish to explore an interest in this field are also welcomed as there are many ways you can assist in the classroom. Whist not mandatory, completing a TEFL course prior to joining this project would prove to be beneficial. Having a basic understanding of Spanish will help you to communicate effectively with staff and students. While Spanish is a plus, volunteers are accepted at all levels of fluency and Spanish instruction is available locally. Importantly, all applicants must first and foremost have a genuine willingness to help, show drive and initiative, and bring a positive 'can-do' attitude. If this sounds like you, we want you on the team!
