This project works with the people of San Cristobal, in the Galapagos Islands, to develop environmental education through community programs. Volunteers can make a real difference to the local community and contribute to the long term conservation of the islands.
The program offers English courses for children, teenagers and adults. The classes are given by international English speaking volunteers. Students are not charged for these classes and although there is strong demand amongst local residents, class sizes are restricted to 15-20 students per class.
You'll mainly teach English to the students at the centre. The program follows a set course and all students have their own books. However, volunteers are also welcome to offer their own ideas and use their own initiative to make their classes as interesting and educational as possible.
As the English classes take place in the afternoons and evenings, volunteers are offered the opportunity to also help out in the local INFA nursery (a local equivalent of family services for more vulnerable children onthe island) in the mornings - helping, caring, entertaining and playing with the babies and toddlers. You may also be asked occasionally to help out with painting or decorating the classrooms, helping out at local schools and colleges or any other activities that benefit the local community.
