Volunteering Abroad Shouldn't Cost the Earth

Summer Camp Volunteer Guatemala

 

Description

We are an NGO based in Antigua, Guatemala, which provides underprivileged children with an education. We run two primary schools and a secondary school which house over 500 Guatemalan children that would otherwise not have been able to go to school. During November, students return to school to participate in extra-curricular workshops. There are 2 options for our volunteers:

1. Workshops: Volunteers get to lead a workshop of their choice, whose focus is up to you! Workshops have in the past focused on for example English, sport, science, art and much more! Volunteers can also team up and carry out workshops together. The workshops requires planning beforehand, so if you would like to participate, please contact the volunteer coordinator who shall assist you in making a personalised schedule based on the summer school plans and objective for the year, and of course your interests.

2. Classroom Assistance: Morning classes take place as normal with the established teacher and volunteers are welcome to assist in these classes. Monday to Friday: 7:30am - 12:00pm. Being a classroom assistant will give you the opportunity to deeply engage with a classroom and a teacher. This program will make you understand how life in one of our NDG school works. Volunteers will be paired with a class and aid one of our teachers in any way that is useful, whether it is to cut and glue paper into notebooks, handing out soap or toothpaste, helping kids with in-class worksheets, or homework.
