Volunteer Teaching Assistants

Give and Surf depends on dedicated volunteers on a year-round basis to provide educational programs to the local indigenous communities of Bocas del Toro, Panama. Volunteers will help with our preschool and/or after-school programs for 4-5 hours each day, Monday to Friday, and then have the other half of the day free to explore the beautiful Bocas islands.

In order to ensure the highest level of safety possible both for our program participants and for visiting volunteers, we are limiting the number of volunteers and requiring a one-month minimum stay. This new “Volunteer Intern” position will be a more independent experience for volunteers. Volunteer Interns (VI) will be placed at one program site (instead of rotating between communities); this will allow the VI to build stronger relationships in the specific community they are working in as well as limit the opportunity for cross-contamination and exposure between communities.

No previous teaching experience required... just a love for kids and a willingness to learn. Some Spanish is helpful but not required.

There is a monthly fee of $2000 to volunteer which covers your accommodations, some meals, local transportation, some excursions/activities, and staff support. We can also arrange group service trips with special itineraries and service projects.
