This year is our third edition of the Teach Program. In this post we want to share with you some of the activities that the students/teachers have been experiencing, and give you more information to apply.
During one month, you will be volunteer teachers in the “Arenitas del Mar” School, at Villa El Salvador District in Lima – Perú. You will also volunteer after classes in the “Deporte y Vida” Program. Both of them are part of the Centro de Eduación y Desarrollo Comunitario (CEDEC) project (https://www.facebook.com/cedecperu/).
The support you will be giving depends a lot on your own skills. The first days you might start helping the local teachers with their daily tasks, so you get to know the dynamics of the school. This is what the volunteer teachers did in their first week:
Some pics below, and more of them here.
During the weeks, you’ll be asked to elaborate an educational project for the school that can have sustainability in time. You’ll present it to the teachers to get feedback and leave a last version there so it can be applied.
And additionaly to this, you will be taking lessons in one of the most prestigious universities of the country (PUCP University). Take a walk across the campus here.
This year’s schedule looks like this:
And of course in your free time you will be able to experience Lima and other peruvian cities.
Our 2016 volunteers give their opinions about their first week in Lima and the peculiarities of the local culture here.
A great experience is waiting for you! More information in our website: https://www.ciee.org/teach/peru/#program-overview
