Are you curious, adventurous and looking for a nice internship or meaningful volunteer position? Beyond South America - a small scale mediation agency in internships and volunteer positions - helps, connects and supports.


The project

Villa Libertad, a house run by a small local family where 15 adopted children from different (mostly violent) background live, are looking for you! They provide the children (aged from 4 to 18) a safe place to live and although the budget is tight, they try to offer them as many chances in life, for example on an educational level. 

 

We are looking for a teacher to continue their development of the English language. Most of the children have a basic level of English and the desire to learn not only grammar as well as more speaking skills. 


There will be the opportunity to become involved in other areas of the activities in the house as you settle in. You will make a big difference to the lives of youngsters, living in challenging circumstances. The ability to speak fluent Spanish, will be an advantage, but is not essential. You will need to be motivated, energetic and goal-driven. 

This volunteering work can be done for a period of time from 2 months or longer.


Your profile

  • Good level of written and spoken English
  • Ability to work using own initiative
  • Motivated with a positive work ethic
  • Experience of or interest in living abroad
  • Passionate about development and education’s role herein

BSA exists in the service of Casa de la Alegría: a foundation that with its love and dedication supports children and youngsters who have dealt with (family) traumas like sexual, mental and/or physical abuse or addiction. Their mission is to empower vulnerable, precious children so they can finally discover their strengths and talents. In the end both as for the coming future, these children will be able to raise their voice and to embody the new generation which can make a true difference to a local, sustainable and loving everyday life. All profits made by BSA will go directly to Casa de la Algeria.
