Volunteer work details:
-Classroom Assistance [Level of Spanish: basic]
Monday to Friday: 7:30 am - 12:00 pm
Being a classroom assistant will give you the opportunity to deeply engage with a classroom and a teacher. This program will make you understand how life in one of our NDG school works. Volunteers will be paired with a class and aid one of our teachers in any way that is useful, whether it is to cut and glue paper into notebooks, handing out soap or toothpaste, helping kids with in-class worksheets, or homework.
-English Classroom Assistance [Level of Spanish: basic]
The program that needs the most support from volunteers, especially because Ninos de Guatemala is trying to transition into a “dual immersion” school. We would love our students to be more and more exposed to the English language every day, and you can help.
We are looking to support our english teachers in the classroom and also in the afternoons. You will probably be assisting the elementary students but also our middle school students. With this program, get to know must of our students.
