Education Volunteer Opportunities in Peru
Aurora Andina works with several projects in the field of education. The schools in Cusco have many students in the classroom therefore; each student may not get the individual attention they need to learn. The role of the volunteer working in this field is multi-faceted. There are many ways in which the volunteer can help the students.
Some examples include:
- Helping the teacher with the organization of classroom activities
- Assisting children from 3 -16 years one on one with their schoolwork
- As Cusco is a major tourist town, knowing the English language can help immensely in their future job placement. Therefore many of our volunteers teach them English.
- Many times kids go to school and then go straight home to help around the house. Sometimes they even have after-school jobs. This leaves not much time for play and recreation. Our volunteers offer lessons in sports, music, painting, drawing, sculpting, crafts and other abilities that you would like to offer such as yoga, dance, theater, puppets, etc.
- Help to enhance student’s motor skills through play and recreation. Any other skills or abilities that you would like to share with the children would be appreciated.
- Other special abilities you have to share with the kids is appreciated.
