OPEN WINDOWS is a dynamic children’s educational center (library, computer center, and more) in the town of San Miguel Dueñas, ten miles (15km) from Antigua, Guatemala’s famous Spanish colonial city.
I worked as a volunteer at Open Windows in May and September of 2016. I got to witness the commitment and patience of each of the teachers towards the children. I got to organize my own classes, watch and help teachers lead activities, and do one-on-one tutoring with reading and math. The children all come to this library because they want to be there-- they come walking and biking, and when they are there they really enjoy themselves. They love to learn. If you are fluent in Spanish this is a wonderful place to lead activities and help out however you can. If you are learning Spanish, working with children is a great way to continue learning. You can listen to children read out loud. This is a great opportunity for the child to have someone listening to them read.
