THE PROJECT

This volunteer project is located in the Amazon Jungle region in the city of Leticia, the southernmost town of Columbia. Leticia is bordered by Brazil and Peru in an area called Tres Fronteras along the edge of the Amazon River. The benefits to volunteer for the local communities in the region are innumerable, including exposure to the unique border of Leticia, involvement in a diverse fusion of people and cultures, and exposure to an unparalleled ecosystem. Volunteers will participate in valuable, hands-on work for sustainable tourism in the community. This approach allows you to be fully immersed in the culture and to rapidly absorb the language. All volunteers are welcomed with open arms and are guaranteed that a proportion of the program fee goes directly to the community for future projects and improvements.

YOUR ROLE AS A VOLUNTEER

The project is run in a government institution and centers on students working in the fields of gastronomy and tourism. Volunteers participate in an array of activities, including teaching English to young adults and assisting with conversational skills. Educational activities also include games based on teaching language skills and helping facilitate other classes, such as the arts or science. Creativity in using your resources can help create a better classroom as most of the schools are not well funded.

WHAT THE PROJECT NEEDS

The minimum time required is 4 weeks of which at least the first 2 weeks you will be taking a Spanish course, as it is necessary to have an intermediate level of Spanish for this volunteer project in Colombia. (Please ask for further information.) You will be working at the volunteer project in the afternoons, which gives you the possibility to combine your volunteering with your Spanish classes and/or cultural activities. The project is looking for volunteers with patience, creativity and professionalism, and who have an enthusiasm for teaching English. An intermediate to advanced level of English language is required for teaching and the ability to work with little guidance and low technology is necessary. Volunteers must be excited to experience cultural differences.
