Volunteer to teach at a small non-profit elementary school located in Puerto Jimenéz, Costa Rica. The main goal of the school is to give children greater opportunities through developing their critical thinking skills and creativity. Classes encourage a deep respect for the natural environment and an awareness of global cultures. The curriculum is bilingual (50% English and 50% Spanish) with interactive components.
Volunteers will have opportunity to assist full-time teachers in the classroom, provide private tutoring, supervise lunch and play times, participate in school events and assist with administration and maintenance tasks.
Volunteers are encouraged to share their own ideas for lessons and activities and be active participants in the community.
