Social Impact Project for Community English Language Promoters
Project Description and Impact
In Partnership with the local Department of Education, the Nukanti Foundation is offering short-term opportunities to work with youth in Risaralda, Colombia - the heart of the coffee region. The selected Experteers will have the opportunity to dramatically improve the level of English language education for rural Colombia children and youth, working with one of the most dynamic and impactful organizations operating today. Experteers will work in classrooms alongside Colombian colleagues to deliver daily lessons, and will run their own, individualized after-school activity. The overall goal is to improve English-language educational outcomes for the youth of Colombia. The program runs until November 2015.
