As a High School Assistant, you will provide additional support to students who are being sponsored through high school. This role involves assisting the students in revising and improving their English. You will also be helping students maintain contact with their sponsors around the world who they must contact in English. The role also involves promoting our sponsorship program to potential donors, through social media and making direct contact with appropriate businesses. You will be working in a high school as well as in the office.
This position is available throughout the Nicaraguan academic year (February – November) and requires a minimum time commitment of 6 weeks. Volunteers in this role should have at least advanced level English, as well as at least post-intermediate level Spanish. If language is a barrier there are numerous Spanish schools in the vicinity.
University students and those with sufficient experience who are looking for a more long term opportunity, please contact us about internships.
We ask each volunteer to make an initial contribution of US$50 towards administration costs. All donations go directly towards supporting the learning centers and our other projects, and they're essential in maintaining our projects. In return you will receive two La Esperanza Granada t-shirts free to wear when you are working with us. There are no additional fees involved with volunteering at La Esperanza Granada, although any fundraising initiatives are welcomed!
Volunteers are responsible for their own living expenses for the duration of their stay. La Esperanza Granada is happy to recommend hostels and arrange homestays for volunteers.
Granada is a beautiful colonial city, on the shore of Lake Cocibolca and surrounded by volcanoes. It is in close proximity to a variety of places of interest and with a buzzing evening atmosphere, volunteers are free to spend their weekends experiencing the beauty of Nicaragua.
La Esperanza Granada can also assist by arranging affordable Spanish classes and bike rentals.
