Âge 18+
Seul voyageur

We include a 1-week full immersion FREE Spanish course because we believe that it will allow you to have a greater impact on the project, as you will be able to interact with local people and communities and share knowledge and skills. The Spanish course is catered to your project and will teach you specific vocabulary that you will need during the placement. 

NGO Taxi works with four schools in the Peruvian Andes that provide flexible and inclusive learning for children aged 7-16 years old who come from families living with scarce income, forcing children to work in the daytime. This project supports schools with English-speaking volunteers who can increase the quality of the schools' English language education. This is essential, as the best-paid jobs in the area are in the tourism industry. Therefore, access to a good English education will help these children break the poverty cycle.

You will be working hand in hand with the teacher in charge of the class. The school follows a set curriculum but with a certain flexibility and creativity which will allow you to propose and work on ideas and activities.

Come and join us to:

  • Help provide inclusive education and support children in breaking the poverty cycle to increase their opportunities for a better future.
  • Learn about other cultures and realities.
  • Learn how to adapt and respond to changes and how to deal with different aspects of daily life and fields of activity. Become flexible, resourceful, and a team player.
  • Get involved in teaching and education.
  • And learn and practice your Spanish!

Keep in mind:

It can sometimes be very hard to motivate the children because they are caught up in a complex situation of having to work and go to school. In many cases, they need to work and support the entire family. Healthy family structures are often disrupted and the children are not well protected or cared for at home. Learning curves at schools are therefore very low. Some of the children do not seem to make any progress throughout the year, which is why the same curriculum is often taught over and over again, and to children of different ages.

This volunteering opportunity requires a great amount of patience and genuine will to work hard in order to give these children some perspective. However, you will also be rewarded with a great number of smiles, gratefulness, and natural energy that will certainly stay in your life forever. 

This project supports and encourages teamwork along with a great deal of flexibility, autonomy and initiative. If you are open and ready for it, you’ll learn how to deal with aspects of daily life and be able to adapt to different fields of activity.

Generally, you should be ready to respond to changes and be able to deal with the unexpected for any work in South America.

Special conditions:
The schools have multiple classrooms and outside play areas and cater to between 600-5000 students, sometimes with 30-40 students in a class. Facilities and classroom equipment is basic but not lacking. You are welcome to provide or create your own materials needed for activities. 

Sometimes you will find that you are the only volunteer at a school. At other times, however, there might be more volunteers, so be prepared for variety in the people you will meet and work with. In any case, you will always be surrounded by dozens of children full of the joys of life, and of course, you will have the support of the local teachers.

Language requirements:
As an assistant teacher, you must speak a basic-intermediate level of Spanish prior to starting as lessons are also taught in Spanish, and it is necessary to communicate closely with the teacher you will be working with, and with the students. We will provide you with a FREE 20-hour Spanish language program that prepares you for teaching at schools. If you do not have enough previous Spanish experience you must complete an additional language course. You can also start a basic Spanish course via online videos, Skype or by taking part in a virtual classroom. Or you can opt for group lessons or private instruction on-location in one of the language schools associated with us, for example. Please ask us and we will provide you with all the information.
