As a Learning Center Assistant, you will work with local volunteers to support and assist the children as they learn. The objective is to create a fun, interactive and positive learning environment outside of the classroom. Our learning centers provide a safe, clean, informal environment to learn Math, Art, Spanish, Computing and English. They are also stocked with resources not often found in the schools such as books, worksheets, art supplies, educational games and computer devices. The children are enthusiastic about learning and excited to meet new people.
This position is available throughout the year and requires a minimum time commitment two weeks. The longer you’re able to commit to, the more valuable your experience will be. You will work in the afternoon, having your mornings for free time. An intermediate level of Spanish is needed in order to be able to fully engage with children. We can recommend Spanish schools if language is a barrier. Contact us about internships.
