Huanchaco Education and Learning Program (HELP) is dedicated to advancing the education possibilities and resources for the lower income children and adults in Huanchaco and its surrounding towns. In Peru it is widely recognized that speaking English is very important in the today's world to get a scholarship to study abroad, to work in tourism, or to work abroad. At expensive private schools children are already made familiar with English at a young age. Unfortunately, the government does not have enough money or skilled teachers to offer the same thing in their state and public schools. So that's where HELP steps in providing skililed volunteers to teach English in school and within the community. The volunteers' have become a valuable resource for the schools and the community, because they provide a service that would not normally fit into their tight budgets.
Role/what you would be doing
The main role of the the ELT coordinator would be to help coordinate the teachers in the schools and in the different libraries. This would envolve organizing the teachers, organizing extra activities to engage and reinforce what had been taught, and to understand the needs of the students and the facilities.
