PERU / Supporting Kids in Peru – SKIP
Created in 2003, SKIP is a non-profit organization helping economically-disadvantaged children in El Porvenir realize their right to an education. We are currently working on the north coast of Peru, in the impoverished districts that surround the city of Trujillo.
Our team is comprised of volunteers from the community of El Porvenir and Trujillo as well as volunteers from overseas.
We are currently looking for volunteers willing to teach English to primary school children. A qualification in English teaching is not required. Our English teaching coordinator will be able to provide you with guidance and advice. You will plan lessons as a team but you will be teaching classes by yourself.
Ideally people should have prior experience of working with children and an enthusiastic and energetic personality.
A level of Spanish speaking ability would be of use although not essential. However, prospective volunteers would be encouraged to learn as much Spanish as they can prior to arrival as it will enhance their volunteering experience.
