We are looking for volunteer teachers for our successful English course. The work is important, because the low level of English in Paraguay is one of the reasons impeding its economic growth. All classes, study materials, exams and transport to exams are free to the students, who would have no possibility of studying if it were not for free classes. Last year we gave English classes to 75 children and 80 adults, and our most advanced students are fluent and are working as English teachers in language institutes, or in a number of hotels around the country as managers, guides and receptionists.
This is a great volunteering opportunity for competent Spanish speakers with a desire to work with the poor. Unlike many organisations we charge no administration fee, but you must pay all your expenses. We prefer volunteers who can commit for 6 months (3 months minimum).
Please see our website for more details, including FAQs and the testimonies of previous volunteers.
- No administration fee
