Colegio Honofre Benavides

Colegio Honofre Benavides is a public primary and secondary school, located in Tomepampa, a rural village in the Cotahuasi Canyon region of Southern Peru. Volunteers are essential in supporting student education and providing cross-cultural exposure to children at the school. This is a fantastic opportunity to gain teaching experience in a completely different cultural setting and to live in a little-visited, yet fascinating, area of Peru! 

Volunteer responsibilities include:

  • Classroom support

  • Teaching English

  • Assisting with lesson planning

  • Running after school workshops (homework help, English practice, etc.)

  • Supporting individual students

  • Chores inside the school to improve infrastructure

  • Assisting in subjects other than English, depending on level of Spanish and needs of the school

  • Volunteers may also develop other projects, according to the needs of the school and community.

 

 

While we welcome all applications, please consider the following:

 

  • Intermediate Spanish or better is required for this project. Preference will be given to those with a higher level of Spanish fluency.

  • This project runs from March-December, due to school holidays

  • We ask that those applying for this opportunity dedicate a minimum of 1 month.
