Do you want to share your passion for the English language with disadvantaged kids in Ecuador? Have you been dreaming of volunteering abroad? Then this program is perfect for you!
Like other South American nations, Ecuador also lags behind in bringing the English language to a satisfactory level. Students from rural and poorer areas do not get the opportunity to study in private schools. These children study in underfunded and under-resourced schools. The schools lack well-trained teachers, and the children often find it hard to improve the English language. RCDP's teaching English project in Ecuador intends to change this situation and invites volunteers from around the world to contribute.
As a volunteer English teacher in Ecuador, you will be teaching basic English and conversational skills to the deprived Ecuadorian children. You will organize various recreational and artistic activities that encourage learning. You will also work alongside the local teachers on curriculum development. There are no specific qualifications needed to join this teaching English Ecuador program. All you need to have is a basic knowledge of Spanish and fluency in the English language. Thus create an impact in the lives of these children, help them to stand on their feet and take on this world gleefully.
We welcome volunteers from a variety of backgrounds to help out at this project. You will need a solid grasp of the English language, and native speakers are preferred. You should love kids and be passionate about working with teenagers and younger students alike.
Beginner to intermediate knowledge of Spanish is preferred, but not required. If you cannot speak Spanish, we suggest you enroll in our Spanish language course to make your stay even more rewarding – both for you and for the children you are helping.
A dress code is required for all participants – no shorts or sleeveless shirts are to be worn and volunteers must maintain a presentable appearance (i.e. no excessive tattoos or piercings).
