Tasks might vary depending on the workshop that volunteers help in or organize.
Art & Expression
Art is one of the most authentic ways for human beings to express how they individually feel and think, and at the same time feel part of something bigger. It is important to remember that most of the schools that children attend do not have art lessons and, according to many members of the society in which they live, art is superfluous and has no value. In this workshop volunteers carry out different activities that allow the children to develop their creativity and express their feelings through drawing and painting.
Play Centre & Games
Playing is how human beings learn and recognize what their bodies and minds can do. To play is to connect with and relate to all that is around with your senses and your abilities. The playground is an environment with different games which are divided into three groups: creative games, logical games and social games. They are also divided by age, difficutly and objectives. Volunteers will organize and play these games with the children that aim at building their skills and their psychomotor development.
Tutorial & Reading
The Reading Room is an important educational place for the children. The children that go to Yanapay, study in public schools, and unfortunately the majority of the schools are extremely deficient. The poor quality of the schools comes from a lack of vocation from the teachers, lack of budgets, and lack of school authorities. For this reason it is so important to help the children with the basic skills of reading and writing, not only in achievement but also in enjoyment. There are many young children in Yanapay who cannot read, yet are expected to read for their homework. Volunteers will have to help these kids as well as those who already know how to read, by encourage them to read on a daily basis.
Library & Homework
The library holds many different materials all aimed at helping the children accomplish their homework tasks in an efficient way. With the help of volunteers, the children will go to this room to do their homework.
The objective of this workshop is that students learn the different advantages that the computer and the internet can give. The way of teaching is experimental, the teacher should give the students different tasks based on what they already know. It is important that children get to know Word and Power Point as basic programs to work on their homework or to develop presentations. Everyday, the students should use the internet or the searching engines to do some research on the topic of the day or the week. Every computer also offers more than 100 educational games, which the children can use the last 10 or 15 minutes of the class.
