Assistance with language teaching (English) This volunteer program is especially suitable for:

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 empower the children so that they can achieve their dreams one day. As we are a very young and small organization, we still need to extend our operation range to reach more people.

The mission: the volunteer has to develop educative activities in English with the goal of stimulating the skill of expressing themselves in this language for the children or their families. 

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. 

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

The volunteers are 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 or their families
  • Preparation 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
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.

The volunteer works five days a week, two of them are field work and three days work in the office and organization of the activities. Field work days are on Fridays and Sundays. We work in two different different districts of Lima, on Fridays in Pachacamac and on Sundays in Pamplona Alta. In each of the locations there is a morning and an afternoon class.

Typical day

On the days of field work the volunteers go by bus to a meeting point. In Pachacamac, the morning class starts at 10:30am and ends at 12am. Lunch is provided there. The afternoon class is from 2pm until 3.30pm. After the classes the volunteers return by bus. 

In Pamplona Alta the morning class is in the local of Vista Alegre from 10:30am until 12am. The Superlearner team normally eats lunch together and then goes to Villa San Juan, a different community. There the afternoon class is from 2pm until 4pm. 
On office days, the volunteer usually works 5 hours per day. The schedule can be flexible if the volunteer needs it or can work independently, but we encourage the team to meet between 8am and 1pm.

Details on Arrival

There is no specific arrival date. Volunteers can join the program throughout the whole year.

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.
