Cofradia Bilingual Center

The school is located in the lovely town of Cofradia, Cortes, near to the Carribean coast of Honduras. We aim to offer a top-quality, affordable bilingual education to our children and a level of community support and involvement that does not exist in the local public schools. Many of our kids come from very low socio-economic backgrounds and thanks to our volunteers we are able to offer them a free or low cost bilingual education they could not otherwise afford. Being bilingual in Honduras is a massive advantage and gives our kids the chance to end the cycle of poverty for themselves and for their families.

Our volunteers love working with the students at our school as well as the bond that is created between our teachers. At any one time we normally have between 4 and 6 volunteers teaching with us. Our volunteers typically spend the time after school together and often travel together at the weekends to the rivers in town.

Doing a month of volunteering at Cofradia Billingual School center was amazing. You really get to experience the local life style and emerge in the Honduran culture. Cofradia is a little town outside of San Pedro Sula. Not a lot of tourism (if any) but that just makes the experience truly unique. The kids and teachers are wonderful. Mr. Ariel always made sure that me and the other volunteers had everything we needed and felt safe. Mr. Ariel speaks great English so if you don’t speak Spanish it is not a problem. It will make your stay easier when you know a couple frases, but I didn’t

Mr. Ariel is a truly passionate leader who cares about his school deeply. His energy and kindness rubs off on everyone, and by the end of my stay, this school and community became very close to my heart. The work is enjoyable and makes a true social impact — I was very sad to leave and hope to keep helping remotely. Mr. Ariel wants to improve the school to be at its best and openly welcomes suggestions from volunteers, which I appreciated greatly. Cofradia is a lovely little town and there are many activities for volunteers to do on weekends accessible by bus.

I had a great experience. I emailed him with suggestions that I think would help the school. I do think some sort of background test needs to be given to volunteers that choose to work around children. Other than that highly recommended! Be prepared to be put around all types of personalities.
