About Program

Sueños Compartidos was formed with the idea of promoting cultural exchange. Volunteer teachers stay for a semester, dividing their time between teaching preschoolers and university students. In the evening, the volunteer will help lead workshops for local teachers.

Sueños Compartidos volunteer teachers must be over 25 years old and have at least three years of teaching experience.

Volunteer Teaching

I did not go to Colombia for the money, I went for the experience of working in a different culture and to offer pedagogy to fellow teachers. I worked in Florencia, where the Colombian teachers are extremely dedicated and thirsty for ideas to implement in their classes. The high school teachers have a good command of English so they are looking for different methodologies for their classrooms. The elementary school teachers are doing their best to teach in English, without having received second language teaching methodology so they need a different kind of support. The bilingual teachers are doing an amazing job in low socio-economic schools with few resources. Sueños and Colombia met my expectations and left me wanting to return.
