Teach local students English at the schools in and around Coihueco
Overview icon

Overview

This program consists of working with students at various schools teaching English. We have strong relationships with secondary and high schools in the area. English is hard for the local students and villagers and this is where your help is needed most. This program is a great way to improve the English knowledge in the area.

You will assist the teacher during english classes and follow the school curriculum. You will be able to play games with them or teach them an english song. The main aim is to speak as much english with the students as possible.

Our teaching program serves a dual purpose: Firstly, of course, it is meant to help children in Chile to have a chance to understand and speak more English. Secondly, it will give you an insight into the Chilean education system, while providing a good chance to become good friends with students and teachers.

Objectives

  • Improve the English level of the youth of Chile and widen their cultural interactions
  • Assist the school staff with extra hands
  • Provide you with teaching experience, an invaluable life skill!
  • Broaden your perspective to others that may not be as fortunate

Impact

Volunteer experiences have a direct and positive impact on local communities by injecting money into the local economy through the purchase of food, transportation, and tourism activities. Volunteering is a great way to give back to the comunity and make a difference in the world. Depending on the type of volunteer experience you are interested in, your time can be spent improving educational resources and opportunities, providing medical services to underserved communities, or promoting environmental conservation and sustainable farming techniques.
