    Description

    Our work team is made up of about ten people. Here, they are improving their English skills and their abilities to teach Spanish. So if you come here, you will work with us and you will be part of our team.

    We live in Bojaca, a small and peaceful town about an hour outside of Bogota. Our town is very relaxed during the week. Every weekend, especially on Sundays, the town hosts a festival with dancers, shopping, food stalls, a small amusement park, and also blessings from the local church. That weekly event attracts many local tourists from Bogota and beyond, providing a fun experience, and the primary economic activity for the town. It's really fun!

    We can pick you up from the Airport or Bus Terminal, but if you want to get here yourself there are a couple of options from Bogota: :

    You can take a TransMilenio rapid bus to the end of the line at Portal 80/ Terminal 80, then from there take an intercity bus to Facatativa, and we can pick you up.

    Or, you can take a TransMilenio rapid bus to the Distrito Graffiti stop, and you can find a direct bus to Bojaca along the side of the road.

    If you will come to us directly from the airport in Bogota we can arrange to pick you up there with advanced notice.

    Feel free to message us and we'll help you figure out the transport options.

    Good day travelers, if you stay here you will be part of a group of people that are developing a program to teach English (we also teach Spanish as another project). We would like you to help us by being part of new videos -- on-camera and voiceover -- which will help us teach people by example.

    The idea is that you could help us out for about 4 hours a day. During this time we will give you a place to stay where you will have everything you need including lots of food and your own room. If you want, you can also be completely submerged in Spanish so you could develop your skills in this language, but that is your choice.

    You will help us to record some videos and audio, do video editing, and answer questions about English on camera (the answers are already determined) so that we can use those videos and audios on our website and other platforms to teach English.

    If you have real experience promoting and launching digital products, online classes, etc., please let us know and tell us more about your methods, as we are nearing the launch phase of our project.

    We prefer couples, but if you're by yourself that's ok too.

    When staying here, the (two) volunteer(s) will have their own room with a double bed. If you were wondering about food, don't worry. Here we will give three daily meals! We eat meat, but we can prepare vegetarian meals for you if you prefer (there will be meat in the house that others will be eating, though, so this won't be a good fit if you require a meat-free home!).

    We'd like your help for about a month.

    Our Internet connection is great for normal use, web work, etc. However, it is probably not fast enough for full-time video uploads. We all are very Internet connected, and we are online all day!
