Development of educational activities for children, participation in manual work days, management of social media This volunteer program is especially suitable for:
Age 18+
Superlearner is an organzation that works in the very poor district of Pamplona Alta in Lima, providing formal and non-formal education for the children in two communities. Many of the children there feel that they can‘t rise above their circumstances and that they feel unworthy.  By working with them we want to empower the children so that they can achieve their dreams one day.

The mission: the volunteer has to plan and develop educational activities for children, he can participate in manual work days for the maintenance, construction or dismanteling of structures belonging to the communities in which we operate and will update the social medias.

The volunteer will be working with Jorge, the founder of the project, Caterina, the project coordinator and other volunteers. 

The volunteer is expected to adapt to a different cultural background, be able to work in a team and be puntual for meetings. It is essential to bring a personal device like a laptop or tablet.

General tasks: 
  • Organization and development of educational activities for children
  • Production of educational material
  • Participation in the meetings to coordinate the teamwork
  • Social media management to sensitize the people about the topics of intervention of the organization and for fundraising
The volunteer usually works five days a week, generally from 9:30 am to 5:30 pm. We can arrange a different schedule if the volunteer needs it.

There are special conditions for this program: all material which is produced during the volunteer time belongs to the NGO and must not be personally used for the volunteer.

Unfortunately, we can‘t provide accommodation for volunteers at the moment, but we can help to find a good place in a safe neighborhood in Lima. 

Typical day

On the days of field work (5 per week, but the volunteer is not always required there, since there will be other volunteers) the volunteer goes by bus to a meeting point. He develops the activity (generally 2 hours maximum) and comes back to the office or to his house.

The office work is complementary to the field work, so depending on the schedule of field activities, it could be during the morning or in the afternoon. The schedule of the office work can be flexible if the volunteer needs it or if he can work independently.

Free-time activities

In Lima there are plenty of free time activities to do. As the city is on the Pacific coast, you can go swimming, surfing or do other water sports. In this huge city there are always a lot of possibilities to go out at night, go to concerts, go shopping or sightseeing, visit museums or go hiking in the surrounding mountains.
