About us: The Arajuno Road Project was created in 2008 with the goal of supporting the schools and improving the opportunities available to the children living along the road located between the small city of Puyo and the rural community of Arajuno in the Ecuadorian Amazon. The program has impacted over 500 children and their families to date by providing quality English instruction, improving the infrastructure and learning environment of their schools, and working on community development and conservation programs, such as school gardens and reforestation. The Arajuno Road Project is managed by the Amazon Language & Conservation Exchange.
What we need from you: The main responsibilities of the assistant coordinator are to aid the project manager and help the volunteers teach and assist with lesson planning. Normally, the majority of volunteers do not speak Spanish so it is the assistant coordinators responsibility to help translate between students and volunteers. The assistant coordinator should also have some experience with teaching English as a second language so that they can effectively assist the volunteers with planning lessons. The assistant coordinator is expected to step in and teach in the event that there is a gap in volunteers. The assistant coordinator serves as an important contact between the main professor at the schools and the project manager. He/She should also do weekly evaluations of how the students are progressing and report back to the project manager.
