Volunteer and Teach English to the Children in Peru

Volunteer and Teach English to the Children in Peru

Because public education in Peru significantly lacks funding, and the majority of the community cannot afford private schooling, the members of our community have very few opportunities for education. Thus, children are born into poverty and few are ever able to rise up and become empowered. Recognizing that many members of La Esperanza are born into this type of poverty and have few job opportunities, PerúVivential’s founders decided to broaden the horizons of our friends and neighbors through providing education. There is no greater freedom than knowledge. This belief defines the philosophy at our organization which offers English classes completely free of charge to people of all ages in the hopes of creating an equal opportunity for everyone to receive a quality education.

Volunteer Roles/ Working Hours

Your role will consist of leading the English classes, where possible this will be done together with another volunteer. At present, the general level of English of our learners across all schools and settings is basic, and it is important that volunteers are prepared to be teaching students or learners who will more than likely be at a beginner level. Generally, volunteers will work with classes 3 times a week between 4 hours per day its flexible, and the length of lessons is usually around an hour, but can sometimes be shortened or extended depending on other activities of schools and settings. The class teacher will usually be there in the classroom with you but normally not participating. Depending on which class you teach the assistance you will receive from the teacher will vary. Specific tasks include a combination of the activities listed below:

  • Giving English lessons to children (sometimes there is also a demand for Arts or Sports classes).
  • Bringing new ideas to improve the HELP English project.
  • Preparing lesson plans or even a syllabus or study programme for your subject, considering what’s been done in the past and what can be improved now.
  • Guaranteeing that all the materials used during each session are stored and put back into place afterwards. The school is open most of the year (from January to December). Volunteers can get there from Monday to Friday – in the morning (8:30 am until 11:30 am and 3 pm until 6 pm). However, it might vary according to the subject(s) you will be teaching. Do not forget you’ll need some time for planning activities and staff meetings!
