Food Allowance
18-24 hours per week for a minimum of six months

We have recently come to a new arrangement with a public funded high-school school in the bustling city of Villavicencio, Colombia, which starts up again at the beginning of February 2020. Villavo, as locals call it, which is 70 kilometres southeast of Bogota and only a ten minute drive from its sister-location Restrepo. Villavicencio is the gateway to Southern Colombia and has all of the amenities you would imagine. This is ideal for folks wanting to experience a small city-life that is still surrounded by neighbouring small towns and natural wonder. In Villavo you can truly immerse yourself in the energetic soul of Colombian culture. This is a much more rewarding placement that comes with a few extra responsibilities, and we're looking for someone with a passion to get to know a community, a group of eager-to-learn kids, and spend a slightly more substantial period of time falling in love with (or continuing to love) our blissful corner of Colombia.


The role involves planning and delivering English lessons 18-24 hours per week to children in Grade 6 and 7 in a vibrant educational environment, in addition to some extra ad hoc administrative work and meetings. This position is more suited to accomplished Spanish-speakers as it also entails some behind-the-scenes work, taking part in meetings with school staff, as well as interacting with parents. Specifically, we tend to look for folks who have an A2 level of Spanish proficiency For this exciting spot, we do have a few bonus requirements to mention:


-At least C2 level English proficiency with a neutral accent;

-An accredited TEFL/TESOL/CELTA preferred but not mandatory;

-A University degree at Bachelor's level (the subject is less important than the qualification);

-And finally the nature of this new programme means we do need volunteers to commit to a 6-month stay with preference being shown to folks able to stay longer.
