Honduras Child Alliance

Porvenir English Program (PEP)

El Porvenir, Atlantida, Honduras

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.

Details on Arrival

PEP operates during the Honduran school year, February through November. Volunteers can arrive at any point throughout this time.

Free-time activities

Our community is located next to the Caribbean Sea and our houses are quite close to the beach. Within a 20 minute ride there are mountains with beautiful waterfalls, river rafting, hot springs and zip lines. You can take a ferry to the islands for a weekend of snorkeling or scuba diving.
