The program offers the chance to practice your Spanish skills, whilst indulging in the local lifestyle of beautiful Patagonia, Chile. As a volunteer, you will help teach English in a local school, aiming to improve the standard of English taught there. If you are keen to get more involved, there is also an opportunity to coach sports.
The project includes an excellent 3 day orientation when you arrive - including rafting and cooking class. Not only does this provide an extremely friendly welcome for the volunteers, but gives you the chance to get to know one another whilst gaining confidence in your Spanish ability.
