In-School and after-school Programs:
In Nicaragua, primary education is free and compulsory. However, this has never been enforced and some 700,000 school-aged children never enrolled this past year. We work with a variety of in-school and after-school programs in Granada, where volunteers can help with a wide-range of tasks including: Teaching English, Leading Dance/Art/Sports Activities, Helping to Care for the Young, and Meal/snack preparation.
Volunteers can help care for young children (ages 1-6). Volunteers spend most of their time just getting to know the children and giving them a lot of attention and love. Volunteers will engage the children in a variety of activities aimed at building self-esteem, learning, and just having fun.
