Get on Institute

Do you enjoy teaching languages or always wanted to try? Do you like being around children?
Then come and join us! We are looking for native speakers willing to teach their language, especially English, to our students.

If you decide to volunteer with us, you will have accommodation and five hours of Spanish classes per week. You will also get to share with the locals and your fellow volunteers, eat in delicious restaurants and go on hikes or bike rides.

Villa de Leyva is a quiet, bohemian and beautiful place that has a lot to offer. Our goal is to help you have a great experience, make you feel at home and give you the opportunity to learn more about the unique Colombian culture and its traditions.

We are a small institute and only two people work here. Anaïs is the director and Carolina is the Spanish teacher. We will do our best to make you feel welcome and provide you with all the information you need to have a relaxing and rewarding time here.

I spent almost a month at the Geton Institute, and I am so grateful I did. Villa de Leyva is a beautiful pueblo, and the institute that I taught in was perfect for teaching and so serene. We also had Spanish classes provided.

The host was very welcoming and made sure I had everything I needed throughout the experience. I taught up to four classes a day and created the curriculum for each class.

The students were of all ages and levels of English proficiency. The teaching was very gratifying, and I learned so much as well.

I would love to return one day.

Anaïs was very helpful and flexible, excellent communication! If you need something, she’ll do her best to help you out! The teaching was fun as well. The house is quite a ways out of town so not only is it an uphill, 30 min trek every time you want to go home, but there’s nowhere to really hangout in town between classes unless you go to a cafe every day. Although there are tables & chairs at the institute, there’s not a comfortable lounge space for between classes. Overall, working with GetOn was nice, but be prepared to be in a quiet town as not much happens in Villa de Leyva.

I spent 6 weeks in Villa de Leyva teaching with Get On Institute. It was a wonderful experience. The house for the teachers is really nice, and if you prefer peace + quiet like I do you will enjoy the location - about a 20-30 minute walk from the center of town.

The town itself is lovely. I already miss it dearly. Anaïs is a wonderful person to work with. She is very understanding, should you have any questions/concerns, and also a warm presence that I am glad to have had the pleasure of meeting (like so many of the people I met in Villa).

The town of Villa del Leyva is super nice and peaceful. I definitely enjoyed my experience here and I would love to come here again in the future. Anais is super helpful and kind so you won’t have any problems if you need help from her.

Esta fue mi segunda experiencia haciendo un voluntariado. Fue una muy linda experiencia, conocí otros voluntarios de distintas partes del mundo y pude disfrutar de la vida tranquila en Villa de Leyva. El lugar es lindísimo y viene muy bien si uno quiere descansar y conectar con la naturaleza. También me gustó ser parte del instituto y disfruté muchísimo de conocer las escuelas locales rurales :) Recomiendo la experiencia
