Program Details

We provide free English and German classes for children, teenagers and adults. Therefore, everybody can participate in our community. We believe that English lessons will provide a valuable opportunity to help local people gain the skills they need to communicate with tourists and also help the younger generations to have better life opportunities. TEFL Certificate is not a requirement but, it is a plus. We are looking for volunteers that are fluent in English and also have creative teaching ideas such as playing games, singing, storytelling, acting, etc.
We are also teaching the German language to the Austrian-German community of Codo Del Pozuzo, Puerto Inca. By teaching German, we are helping this community to keep their culture alive.

Activities & Shift

The focus should be on developing curiosity about other cultures and to experience language as a communication tool and part of a culture.
Volunteers can also design workshops for kids or adults such as football matches, arts and crafts, environmental education, drama and so on.
The idea is to connect the new language abilities with positive emotions.

We teach English to three groups for three days a week. The first group is children between the ages
of 6 and 9. The second group is children aged 10 to 14 years old. The third group are 15 years of
age and older.

On a typical day, volunteers prepare their class in advance by following a schedule with the topics to be taught. Classes are on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday. Children ages 6-9 and 10-14 begin class in separate groups at 4:00 p.m. to 5:30pm. Then, adults come from 6:00pm to 7:30pm.

Volunteers help up to 15 hours a week


Volunteers are the role models for our kids. Therefore, it is not allowed to drink alcohol or smoke in front of kids.
