Volunteering Abroad Shouldn't Cost the Earth

Lead English Teacher Peru



We run an after-school space that provides a stimulating English learning environment for children and adolescents from the outskirts of Arequipa. This year, in our new Community Center, we seek to reach 100 children, aged 3 to 17. We feel so ready for this, and would love to count on you!

The purpose of the program is to improve the English speaking, reading, writing, and listening skills of the students in your class using the HOOP curriculum, effective lesson planning, and dynamic teaching methods, with the support of the Education Coordinator.


To apply, please send your CV, Criminal Check and a Reference letter to welcomevolunteers@hoop.ngo
