Peru volunteer Teaching kids in a poor community of Piura

If you are interested in working hand in hand with other local and foreign volunteers in the community of Piura, Peru, to develop different activities such as workshops in music, dance, painting, theater, and teaching English to children and youngsters, this project is for you!

The aim of this project is to provide alternatives for children and young people on how to use their free time in positive activities and help them to develop new skills as a complement to their education, and contribute to the local community as they don’t have the economic resources to hire English teachers to teach the children from the community of Piura.

The volunteers will be involved in some of the following activities:
– Prepare language workshops: preparing language classes for children and youngsters in the community of Piura.
– Facilitate music workshops: you can use musical instruments available at the school.
– Facilitate dance workshops: to exchange cultures through dance.
– Painting workshops: use painting as a tool for teaching.
– Theater workshops: to create small presentations that include educational, reflection and motivational messages focused on children and youngsters in the community.
– Recreational activity workshops: sharing experiences with the community through games, sports, culture and languages.
– Help in the construction and rehabilitation of green areas.
– Support the community in reforestation activities in the parks and gardens in Piura.

Basic conversational level of Spanish is required, as well as ability to speak in front of groups, share and teach, and stay engaged throughout the whole duration of the project.
