This is a unique opportunity to assist in an integrative educational project that addresses issues relating to poverty and illiteracy in low-income communities.
Volunteers work in local schools in southern Buenos Aires, which are typically regarded as having fewer opportunities. There, the integrated approach focuses on education and social inclusion with whole families instead of individual children. It also involves bringing different social groups within the school together.
Volunteers can be hugely influential on this project by helping local teachers with English lessons, adding skills as a fluent or native English speaker to help both primary and secondary school-aged children. Your support in assisting with pronunciation and providing additional guidance and support to the children within the class can make a big difference. You may also have the opportunity to assist in other areas, including music and art lessons.
This project is well suited to volunteers eager to help teach English abroad, especially to enthusiastic children who will gain a lot by improving their language skills.
As you will be volunteering with the support of IVHQ’s local team and placement staff, you do not need to be a qualified or experienced teacher to participate on this project. However, we encourage you to come prepared by completing some relevant training. Visit our Online TEFL Course page to learn how to gain an internationally-recognised TEFL certification at a discounted rate.
An intermediate (B1/B2) Spanish-speaking ability is recommended, though is not required as you’ll be working alongside local placement staff.
Please note that due to school holidays, this project is closed from mid-December to between the end of February and mid-March.Apply now
