Volunteer work description:

The Teacher's Assistant Program is the most active volunteer program available and the one that needs the most support from volunteers. The highest priority is with our youngest students (4-6 years old). Depending on how many volunteers we have at any given time you could expect to be working with kids that range from 4 years to 12 years old. Volunteers are paired with a grade from one of our schools to aid one of our amazing teachers in their quest to help these children grow and develop, learn about the world around them, and put them on a path towards success. As teachers’ aids, volunteers are responsible for helping individual students, creating educational materials and keeping the children on task.

The Morning Program at our schools is based on the national curriculum (Curiculo Nacionál Base) designed and approved by the Guatemalan Ministry of Education. This includes classes in mathematics, language, history, science, art, and physical education. Following this curriculum ensures that our students will ultimately receive a diploma accepted throughout Guatemala.

You can combine this program with tutoring or facilitation workshops in the afternoons (2pm to 4pm).
