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 coordinate summer camp. Normally, the majority of volunteers do not speak Spanish so it is the camp coordinator's responsibility to help translate between the children participating and volunteers. Summer camp activities include arts & crafts, English, sports, music and other activities; each week of summer camp is based around a theme (for example: Summer Olympics, Health & Nutrition, Musical Instruments). Camp is held at a different location each weekday for 3 hours in the morning. Some time is required in the afternoon or evening for planning and preparation. Local travel required.
