Porvenir English Program (PEP)

PEP provides free English instruction for elementary, kinder and adult students in El Porvenir. Works in partnership with the Club de Lecturas.

The children are mainly elementary age and in grades 1-6 and PEP programs are a supplement to their regular schools.  Volunteers work 4 1/2 days each week.   PEP has 3 locations throughout town; a designated classroom across the street from the public elementary school in ‘el centro’ (the center of town), a donated church space near the pineapple fields, and we have our own building/classroom in the La Mitch neighborhood. Volunteers operate in teams and are supported by an on-site project manager who schedules them and helps with planning. We have a basic curriculum but there is lots of room for creativity in how you choose to work with your groups. We encourage you to teach with songs, movement, games and other fun activities.  Immersion is one of the easiest ways for children to learn a new language.
