The children and youth of the indigenous community face major barriers to success: poverty, reduced access to education, little investment in the area and, as we have noted, loss of attachment to their roots. These factors have incredibly affected their social, psychological and personal development. 

As a volunteer in this community, you can help reduce the impacts of all these problems in the lives of these indigenous children: through school review and reading/writing comprehension classes, you can help them strengthen their academic skills, while maintaining a cultural exchange. and by sharing your own culture with them, you can help strengthen the children's unique culture, which in turn makes these children feel more interested and attached to it. It is important for all children to know that their own culture and language are a valuable and beautiful part of their identity. 

In our center you will work with approximately fifty children (but not all at once!), performing tasks such as school review (in subjects like Math, Science, Spanish, Reading, English or Singing), conducting cultural empowerment workshops, helping with literacy. work (the language of the people), giving workshops on interpersonal relationships and self-esteem, and helping to organize leisure activities for the children. You can also contribute by helping to record audiobooks in Spanish and your language, tell stories to local children in either language, and help children learn to read and write. * No special prior knowledge of the local language is required.

Journée Typique

Volunteers work on weekdays (Monday to Friday) from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm. Always keep in mind that the distance between the project and the place where the volunteers stay is between twenty and thirty minutes, which influences the scheduling of your day. There is very affordable and recurrent internal transportation available.

Activités de Loisir

A rich cultural heritage, beautiful mountains, tropical beaches, historical monuments, and a bustling capital city —Panama has it all, directly within your reach to discover while you volunteer in this exciting country. Panama is a rather small country with a high density of remarkable and memorable locations, which is something you can completely take advantage of, through cheap and accessible transportation, ease of visiting, and a welcoming people. 

Some of the sites most enjoyed by our volunteers are: 
  • Panama city: a modern and bustling city, it's a city that may offer you both big malls and modern architecture, as well as the scenic old city (in Casco Viejo), old monuments (such as the Panamá Viejo colonial area), a natural park filled with sloths and ñeques in the middle of the city (Parque Metropolitano), plenty of museums and seaside spots (such as the Amador area). In the city you can also go visit and discover first-hand how the Panama Canal works. 
  • Portobelo: a city in the Colón province, it has history that dates centuries back to the colonial era, some very picturesque traditions such as the yearly Cristo Negro festival, and it has direct access to beautiful Caribbean beaches and tropical islands (most famous is Isla Grande). 
  • Bocas del Toro: A province in the northwest of Panama, near Costa Rica; its archipelagos and beaches are very famous among tourists, as they provide near pristine sands, near transparent water, a lot of wildlife you can see in some of its islands, and activities such as partying, scuba, or just swimming in the beach.
  • Guna Yala: An indigenous region, it has 365 islands which all have a fair share of white sand and crystal clear water. The Guna people that inhabit this region have a culture that is very tied in to the Ocean and to life in these islands, so coming here will not only allow you to enjoy the beautiful and picturesque beaches on these islands (each island having something particular, such as Isla Estrella, an island filled with Sea Stars or Isla Perro, an island filled with corals and fish), but also to appreciate a unique culture tied to life in these islands.
  • Valle de Antón: A very famous valley with cool weather and lots of nature, you can go hike the famous mountain of La India Dormida (the sleeping indian woman, tied to a well-known local legend), see lots of native flora and fauna, and also enjoy the beautiful scenery.
  • Boquete: Located in the Chiriquí province and known as the "Switzerland of America", it's a small yet very beautiful city in the middle of the mountain, known for its tasty coffee, colourful yearly flower festival (although flowers are an important part of the city any time of year), scenic trekking routes, and all the nature around the city.
