The program

This wonderful project was created with the goal of helping to improve the English speaking abilities of the residents of Guatemala. English is becoming increasingly important in Latin America to securing employment. An ability to speak English is hugely beneficial to youth, allowing them to pursue further education opportunities and to seek employment where English is an advantage, such as the tourism sector. Working as a volunteer teacher means you can help many low income children learn a tool that is vital to their future success.  Volunteers enrolling in the Teaching and Assisting in Schools program in Guatemala will meet lots of great children and teenagers eager to improve their English and learn new skills. Volunteers will assist teachers in their subject of choice, and will have the opportunity to handle a class of their own in various levels and age groups. Volunteers will either work in the morning or afternoon depending on which school, subject and classes they are assigned. Volunteering on this project will truly make a difference to the lives of children facing a bleak future. By helping these children improve their English skills, a whole new world can open up for them.

Goals of this Project:

  • Provide free lessons to children and youth to help them improve their English language skills
  • Expose non-English speakers to native English speakers in order to improve pronunciation and conversational skills
  • Improve the future prospects of some of Guatemala’s most impoverished people, and help them to break the poverty cycle
  • Expose volunteers and children to different people and cultures
How you can help

Volunteers play an essential role in the ongoing viability of this program. Without volunteers to offer their skills and time, the program would be unstainable. Through the help of international volunteers, many of the most marginalised children in poverty-stricken Guatemala now have hope for a brighter future. This projects requires volunteers to be enthusiastic and have at least a conversational level knowledge of Spanish in order to be able to effectively communicate and teach the children. If volunteers do not have a working Spanish level, they can opt to take Spanish classes prior to their placement, or in conjunction with their time in the project. Volunteers will be working in rural schools or after school programs, where they will be part of a team of teachers.

Volunteers will contribute in a number of ways and can expect to undertake the following tasks:

  • Teaching English and other subjects to children attending the school
  • Helping teachers plan their classes
  • Assisting other teachers and volunteers in classes
  • Helping teachers conduct environmental awareness classes and self-esteem workshops
  • Teach income generating skills
  • Help other teachers translate materials
  • Create games in English for the students and spend time playing with students

Freizeitaktivitäten

Antigua Guatemala is a city in the central highlands of Guatemala famous for its well-preserved Spanish Baroque influenced architecture as well as a number of spectacular ruins of colonial churches. Antigua Guatemala means "Ancient Guatemala" and was the third capital of Guatemala. It has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Antigua is a growing tourist destination in Guatemala as it is close to Guatemala City but is much calmer and safer, with more tourist oriented activities. Central Park (Parque Central) is the heart of the city and is a popular gathering spot for locals and visitors alike. It is also possible to take buses from Antigua to many parts of Guatemala, many travel agencies offer shuttles to the main touristic places: Monterrico beach, Atitlan Lake, Coban, Lanquin (Semuc Champey), Tikal or even Copan in Honduras.

Unterkunft

Volunteers in Guatemala will stay with a local Guatemalan family which is a great way to be immersed in the culture. All families have been fully vetted by our local team and have experience hosting international volunteers. The home-stays are in safe neighborhoods, and are within a 15 to 25-minute walk or 5 to 10-minute bus ride from the project sites. All families have been fully vetted by our local team and have extensive experience hosting international volunteers. Depending on the time of year it may be necessary to share a room with other volunteers, but private rooms are often available upon request (additional fees may apply). Volunteers will be provided access to a shared bathroom. Host families are often happy to wash clothes for volunteers for a small fee to cover the additional electricity, though mostly volunteers will use a local laundromat. Wifi is available at most host family houses, however we ask volunteers to remember access to this service is a privilege and may be limited at times. A multitude of internet cafes are available throughout Antigua.

Verpflegung
Breakfast and dinner will be provided throughout the placement, including weekends. Guatemalan food typically centers on the key ingredients of corn, chillies and beans. A traditional dish is tamale which consists of a starchy corn-based dough wrapped in a leaf and steamed. The sweets made in Guatemala are well known, containing condensed milk, nuts, fruit and honey, they are considered a delicacy. Volunteers in Guatemala have the opportunity to savor these and other delights in the homes of ordinary local people famed for their friendly dispositions.
