Description

Volunteers Colombia (www.volunteerscolombia.org) is a non-profit organization, established in 2009, that promotes the development of English as a second language in the Colombia's educational institutions benefitting vulnerable populations. In the last four years, in partnership with organizations in the public and private sectors, we have brought more than 140 volunteers from English-speaking countries as as assistant professors for public schools and universities in Cartagena, Barranquilla, Monteria, Manizales, Bogota, Cali, Medellin and other cities.

In the second half of 2013 we began a pilot program with SENA, Colombia's largest public institutaion aimed at creating vocational training and labor opportunities for students who would not normally have the prospects of attaining higher education. In January 2014, VC brought 105 volunteer teachers to Colombia to work in ten cities. This July, VC will bring an additional 45 volun-teachers to teach in four new cities.
