We provide free English classes to children and adults in Diriamba, a small town in Nicaragua. Classes are given in eight public schools based on the agreement signed with the Nicaraguan Ministry of Education. At APAN, our local partner, adult English classes are also offered once a week for groups of no more than 15 people.
All teachers are volunteers. There is always one long-term volunteer in Diriamba coordinating the project. Our English teaching methods are adapted to each group level and age, with an emphasis on continuous improvement and no gaps between volunteers.
As a volunteer, you will be teaching English to children and unemployed in public Schools of Diriamba, a small town south east from Managua. Classes are given four days a week during 4 to 5 hours a day. English speaking is a huge advantage in Nicaragua, where tourism is growing fastly .
There are no fees, you only pay for your accommodation and food, and this money goes entirely to your host family.
Volunteers stay with host families. You will get three meals per day, room and shower. Your host family will give you a warm welcome and you will have a wonderful stay during your time with them. Staying with a family allows you to get a truly local experience on the culture and traditions of the country.
The usual accommodation costs are 150 USD/month. We can arrange someone to pick you up at the airport for an additional 30 USD.
We offer recommendation letters, certificates of your volunteer stay or Linkedin recommendations for all those who work with us. If you are staying for a long period (eg three months or more), we will be happy to contact your university and arrange this work to be considered as an internship for your studies. Don´t hesitate to contact us if you need something else.
