Teaching, taking care of the children and young people, organizing recreational activities
For this volunteer project you will be given the chance to teach at a primary school located in the beautiful surroundings of Huancayo. The rural schools lack teachers, therefore the help of volunteers is very crucial to support the education system. The children you will be teaching are girls and boys between the ages of 6 to 12 years.
The work of the volunteers it makes it possible to offer the children further education which means more possibilities for them in later life, with courses such a computer, English and art all taught by volunteers.
During this project you will be working as an assistant teacher in a rural school near Huancayo. You will be teaching children in one or two subjects but this depends on your abilities and background.
Usually volunteers teach basic english and one other subject such as art or computer courses. There is the opportunity to teach other subjects depending on your abilities and interests. You will be responsible for the preparation of your lessons so if you have any new ideas or suggestions feel free to say, a lot of volunteers bring in materials to make the lessons more interesting and interactive.
On a typical day: you will teach the children the lessons you have chosen, you will also be given time to prepare lessons, you will also play with the children.
There are many different activities to choose from in your spare time like playing different sports. Many volunteers travel the nearby hill tops to take in the amazing views and culture that Peru has to offer.
In this project you will live with a host family in either a single private bedroom or a double bedroom which you share with another volunteer. Staying with a host family allows you to indulge in the culture while it also increases your spanish skills. Some guest families have wifi.
