Volunteers play an integral role in achieving the goals of this project. Speaking English and other languages like French and German are getting more and more important due to rising tourist numbers.

Your job is going to be as a consultant for the English teachers in the schools: You are going to support them in their subject and if you are very confident with the language and you show dedication, you can also support other teachers in several different subjects. Create small exercises for your students, make them smile while they're learning and think of appreciation in the children’s eyes.
You will assist a local teacher during the day at the class and will learn with small groups in the afternoon (1-3 times a week) a second language if you are a native speaker in English, German or French. Volunteers are needed from around the world. As long as you have a good English level, we are very happy to get your support for the kids!

Typical day

A volunteer’s workday on this project will generally last between 5 and 6 hours and while we ask all volunteers to be flexible in this regard, a typical daily schedule is likely to go something like this:
