We are looking for volunteers all year ‘round to assist with our project, Asociación Somos Luz. The job is to help the children to attend the project with their homework, to provide English or French language lessons, or to teach computer skills. No teaching experience is required, but you must have knowledge about the subjects being taught. The children, from the local town of San Felipe, are between the ages of 8 and 13 years old. Love of working with these children is enough to make for a successful volunteer experience.
Volunteers who wish to work four hours per day with us will in return have the opportunity to live with a local family in a private room. Full board will also be provided. The cost of this to the volunteer will be only US$75 per week.
You do not need to be fluent in Spanish to apply for a volunteer position. You may, in working with these children, actually learn some Spanish without even realizing it.
