Volunteer opportunity posted by: GoEco - Volunteer Abroad
Posted on: January 1, 2013
Be part of an opportunity for children to learn life lessons and stay off the streets. Volunteers receive surfing lessons during the school day and help teach the kids after school.
There are anywhere from 5 to 20 children participating in the club every week, so this is a great way to gain experience working with children and leading group activities, while also contributing to a social and humanitarian cause. Volunteers are able to take free surf lessons during the school day and then help teach and lead groups of children after school. There are also opportunities to assist in community development or to help teach computer skills in schools during the day.
Volunteers will work with the children 3 ‐ 5 days a week. The volunteers' mornings can be spent learning to surf, helping in a school, or relaxing on the beach.
Afternoons are spent teaching kids to surf or one of the above activities. Some Saturdays are also a full day of activities with the children. On their days off, volunteers will have a chance to learn how to surf with an instructor and will have the use of surfboards.
