Opportunity Details


PROJECT DESCRIPTION AND IMPACT

The Experteer would help in development of a thematic monthly curriculum so volunteers are able to understand what will be covered and prepare for their work in advance.  The curriculum includes circle time, story time, along with art, music, science and sports activities to go along with the English or Spanish lesson.  We already have a structure in place but will need new activities for our school year starting in February 2017.

DELIVERABLES

This project will be considered a success if our volunteers arrive in-country feeling prepared to jump into the current thematic lessons. We also are working to avoid repetition of the programs as volunteers come and go and so good record keeping is essential. We will know that this is successful if we have a creative and experiential curriculum in place with plenty of time to train our incoming volunteers. 

The timing is somewhat flexible but we need the curriculum in place for February 2017.

We Provide These Local Benefits


ACCOMMODATION

We have two volunteer houses in El Porvenir. They each have a complete kitchen, bathrooms with showers, electricity and wifi. Normally volunteers have to pay rent but housing fees will be waived for the Experteer.

LEARNING OPPORTUNITY

We are a very "hands on" program.  Our volunteers are involved in the implementation of all aspects of the programs for children.  The Experteer will learn about non-profit operations, challenges of operating in a developing country and about living in true community.  There will be instant feedback on the success of the curriculum plans. Our village is very friendly but extremely poor.  Our volunteers interact daily with children and families living in extreme poverty and are often amazed at how, even with so little, people are still willing to share. In addition, our community is surrounded by pineapple fields and so living in our village is also a lesson in corporate farming and how workers subsist on low wages and irregular work schedules.

ADDITIONAL BENEFITS

In addition to hands on experience and a great support network, we will gladly provide enthusiastic letters of recommendation! We have hosted 3 previous Experteers and would be happy to have you speak with them once accepted into our program.

VIRTUAL

This opportunity accepts applications for virtual experteers.
