In Guatemala, we teach English to children in public schools of Santiago Atitlán. We have an agreement with the Ministry of Education to provide children in primary school with a basic level of English. If you want to volunteer with us, read more about the project and apply here.
Tourism is growing rapidly in Central America and Santiago is surrounded by several touristic villages. Our students are mostly indigenous, hence their level of Spanish is not high and their access to the job market is difficult. By teaching them English, we help these children getting a job in the near future. Read more about the reasons for our work in our section ´Vision´.
Volunteers receive instructions and academics materials upon their arrival. These materials are standard throughout our organization and they follow the ESL international levels. All this work is organized and managed on-the-ground by our Volunteer Coordinator. She organizes the arrival, accommodation and teaching schedule of our volunteers in Guatemala.
With full capacity of our volunteer positions, we reach 500 students in Santiago Atitlán.
