As a Youth Activity Intern, volunteers assist the children at the Hogar de Amor Childrens Home. These children are at social risk and come from government care. Most Hogar de Amor volunteers also help at the Jungle School. The Hogar de Amor is located in La Ceiba, Honduras. Volunteers are immersed in day-to-day life with the children, and volunteers choosing this placement should be ready to help the children with their homework, tutoring in English and Math, teaching computer skills, planning different activities for the children, helping with chores and reading stories. There is never a dull moment, and there is always a child ready to give or receive a hug. Typically the Hogar de Amor has 4-5 staff members. Occasionally volunteers and different groups visit and work on construction projects and have different activities planned for the children to do. Volunteers have their weekends free to do whatever they want on their own. Some Spanish speaking is very helpful.
