We are Fundación de la Santa Cruz located in San Francisco, Cundinamarca, looking to host volunteers to live and work in the Colombian highlands some 1.5 hours or 50kms north-west of Bogotá. You will be in charge of homework groups, as well as organizing and implementing English + Computer lessons including material for youths of varying ages. This is a daily activity from Monday to Friday, 4 hours every afternoon. We are developing our setup towards project-based work through which we aim to raise the self-esteem of our charges thus counteracting the effects of what they have experienced.
Our foundation is located 15 minutes walk from San Francisco village center and we are close enough to Bogota to make it a weekend destination. San Francisco itself is situated in a beautiful valley with coffee farms all around.
Requirements: Volunteers should feel comfortable communicating in Spanish, at least at a basic level. Some teaching experience is preferred, but not required.
Accomodation: We will arrange for you to live with us on our foundation grounds in separate housing from the children and youths in our care (private bathroom + shower). Please keep in mind that the accomodations are considered to be basic.
Benefits: Housing and meals are covered by the program.
Available dates: We have openings year round as we are implementing several programs. Two month time commitment is necessary, longer stay welcome. You are free during the morning and on the weekends, though always welcome to join in our life & family.
