How Can I help?
Volunteers can choose where they would like to help based on their profession, skills set and personal preferences. Each volunteer track allows the volunteers to interact with the community and support the local staff in their daily activities.
Volunteering at Public Schools
We need teachers who are able to teach English in a primary or secondary school with a basic understanding of the Spanish language. Teaching assistants are also needed.
Volunteering at Special Needs School
We need volunteers with experience in physiotherapy and other volunteers to assist in caregiving duties of all kinds (work one-on-one with children who have disabilities, help to move the handicapped children from one place to another…). Children vary in their disabilities from autism, blindness, Down ’s Syndrome, neurological weaknesses, paralysis, etc…
Volunteering at Medical Centers
Volunteers must be trained medical professionals (e.g. doctor, pharmacist, nurse, emergency medical technician, etc.) or students of medicine or another health care field. A certification is required as proof of practice.
Students will need to provide proof of enrolment or attendance of their course study.
Volunteering at Community Centers, Street Children Programs, and the Nursery.
Volunteers who are able to teach any kind of languages, mathematics, cultural/recreational activities such as yoga, arts, painting, chess, music, dancing, and sports, and to assist them in doing their homework. All volunteers are free to bring in their contribution based on their skills and aptitudes.
It is important to note that a basic command of Spanish will be a very valuable asset to work with the children.
