About the Tasks
We have 5 different options that volunteers may choose:

The idea of this program is to create an environment where volunteers can help local kids with their homework or other interests, such as sports, arts, leisure, etc. Through this program, we will offer a space with technology, light, and an adequate environment where we stimulate study and creativity.
iii. English teaching assistance
English is taught in public schools 5 hours per week (one hour a day). In this program, volunteers will participate in this house as a teacher´s assistant.
iv. Computer classes
Basic computer classes will be offered twice a week, for free and available to everyone in the village. Basic Microsoft Word and Excel will be taught.
v. Play time
Playtime is where volunteers and local kids can share knowledge and experiences. Go to the ocean, play sports and different games.
Every weekend they will have a different option for volunteers to have a good time and experience a different activity that Northern Peru has to offer. For us, it is essential that volunteers have fun and feel happy while helping and participating in our programs.
So what are you waiting for? Get out of your comfort zone and volunteer with us! You will learn to approach life with a different perspective, learning what really matters for a happy life. You will see how the local people are truly rich, being blissful with the little they have.
People from Organos village are very friendly, quiet, and live in completely harmony with each other. A typical day of a volunteer depends on the type of activity they want to get involved. There are 2 types of school hours, middle school goes in the morning and high school in the afternoons. Volunteers get to choose to whom they prefer to teach english. In addition, those not interested in teaching english, may switch to teach basic computer classes (Basic microsoft office). In addition, and as requested, volunteers can participate in afterschool programs, where they help kids to their homework, and share other activities.
In general, volunteers will will help for 3-4 hours a day. The rest of the day they can enjoy the beach, improve their spanish, or any leisure time at the volunteer house. We do offer all touristic activities.
