Program Details

The idea is that the volunteer in this position opens "La Casita Roja" four days a week. The volunteer will be in charge of lending the books, of classes of the community children and of taking care of the orchard outside and any other aspect of La Casita.

Activities & Shift

During the week when children go to their school in the town the library can open to help them with their homework and to improve their reading skills. Besides they know they have to take care of the orchard, so the can help taking out weeds and or planting with the help of the volunteer. We are used to go outside for walks in the farm so we can learn about the nature arround us.
I would be in charge of the weekend shift.


There is a closing time in our community. After 9 pm there ir a securoty chainthat comes up until 5 am. If you want to go out to the town you should be back before that, or in case of emergency talk to the man in charge so he can open the chain for you.
