You want to volunteer, teach children and share your knowledge and skills at the same time!!

The teaching program in the Dominican Republic allows volunteers the opportunity to provide children and youth with educational tools while developing their potential and improving their own lives.  

Through the teaching program in the Dominican Republic, we seek to engage with youth, families and vulnerable communities.  In the same way promote leadership, communication, a healthy lifestyle and the constructive use of free time.  At the same time we build together a support for youth development, support and engagement of parents.  

 

ACTIVITIES TO BE CARRIED OUT

As a result of the work we do, we constantly adapt our activities to the needs of the community, for this reason if you wish to propose creative activities are very welcome.  However, you will be asked to participate in a combination of activities that require working in direct contact with our children and youth.  Basically, the tasks will be in support of the following activities to be carried out:

  • School attendance with recreational activities.
  • Organization of intercultural events and regular local community meetings to encourage exchange and integration.
  • Support in English or other languages classes, depending on the volunteer’s level of proficiency.
  • Participation and support in computer classes.
  • Participation in weekly meetings with other volunteers and staff to create and organize weekly schooling plans and educational projects.
  • Assist in maintenance and restoration activities of educational centres.
  • Accompanying the social worker with children and young people.
  • Helps with community activities when support is needed.
