  • Beschreibung


    We are a group of parents that operate a quaint alternative school for children from pre-kinder to grade 6. We follow a home-school curriculum and so volunteers do not need experience as the material we have is user-friendly.

    We are located in Playa El Zonte, El Salvador, about 45 min. from the International airport (SAL)

    We are a non-profit organization and we take in 2 volunteers per cycle to teach children in a non-traditional setting. Applicants must feel comfortable teaching English or Math as a core subject, and they will also take on a supporting subject of their own. We provide coaching and support and work with volunteers'interests to build the schedule.

    Our programs are based on 6 to 8-week cycles and we give priority to those willing to stay for a minimum of 3 months.

    We require 15hrs a week in exchange for accommodation. We do not provide meals and the school has a full kitchen available for the volunteers.

    We are currently looking for a MATH-FOCUSED volunteer for the Sept to Dec cycles, which mean that your core topic would be math for grade 3 to 5 plus supporting subjects that we can determine together.

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    Volunteers are exposed to an alternative type of living and educating children.

    We offer support and so you will learn various communication, group-leading and organization skills that will further your ability to connect and guide young children within a creative style of your own.

    The school is located on the beach, within a local community. Here you can blend with the Salvadorian culture and experience their food, amazing landscapes and simple and down to earth way of life.
