Being a Volunteer Teacher at La Comunidad que Construimos is an incredibly rewarding experience and a unique opportunity to make a difference in the lives of children and their families here in Trujillo. You will work with an official NGO, dedicated teachers and educators that have served the community for years.
We see the English Teacher role as crucial to the success of our organization, as our volunteer teachers provide children with the necessary tools to build their self-esteem and confidence through our educational programs and workshops in the Alto Trujillo district daily.
Our volunteers teach English to 12 classes of children aged 6-12 each week. Our teaching methods are inclusive and interactive: children learn how to achieve their goals, work with others and manage their emotions – through play and mutual trust. Volunteers prepare lesson plans according to the requirements of the national curriculum: speak, write and read English as a foreign language. We also incorporate Sports and Art into our lessons to help the kids develop their social and creative skills. All classes take place in the presence of a local primary teacher.
