Quito
Volunteer at a school in Quito and assist in teaching English, sports, computers and art lessons. Students at these schools often come from poor families and the government does not always provide all of the materials these schools need. Teachers are extremely overworked and any help is always welcome. The exact grade and/or subject a volunteer will teach, depends on his or her experience and preferences.

The school ‘Reino de Quito’ is a traditional state-run school founded in 1942, located in the colonial center of Quito. The school receives about 500 children from 3 to 12 years old. As it is a public school, the Ecuadorian government provides for most of the resources such as infrastructure, equipment, teachers’ salaries, uniforms for the children between 3 and 4 years old (from 4 they have to buy their uniforms themselves), snacks and educational materials. In this school you will find all kinds of children who come from many different economic and social backgrounds, most of them from poor families, some live with both their parents, others come from single parent households or live with their grandparents. The families are mostly bricklayers, artisans, housemaids, street vendors (some children sell candy on the streets as well), or they are unemployed.

The school has about 500 pupils with approximately 25 to 30 children per class. Each class has one general classroom teacher who teaches all main subjects and then there are a few specialized teachers in English, Arts and Sports who do not have their own classrooms, but instead rotate around all the classrooms teaching their specialized subjects. A volunteer coordinator is assigned within the project, who only speaks Spanish.

Volunteer Teaching at a Primary School

Work Schedule

The school is open Monday to Friday from 07:00 to 12:20. You will have your weekends and afternoons free to spend exploring Ecuador. If you would like to also occupy your afternoons, you can help at the Street Children Outreach Center where many pupils go in the afternoon to receive lunch and help with their homework. The school year runs from September to June. Classes finish for summer holidays in July and the start of the new school year is at the beginning of September. It is important that you are on time and punctual to work.

Location

The school is located in the center of Quito, the capital of Ecuador. You can take a bus or taxi to the school from where you are living. Bus and taxi are not included, and at your own expense.

Recommendations

- It is not necessary or obligatory but if you would like to bring donations of educational or recreational materials to the school this would be more than welcome and appreciated (e.g. pens, paper, paints, paintbrushes etc).

- Be patient and use your initiative. Schools in Ecuador can be very disorganized and chaotic; teachers may not tell you exactly what you have to do as they are busy and so it is up to you to get involved. Use your own initiative and ideas and you will have a rewarding experience.

- You must abide by school rules - you may only work with closed, comfortable shoes - sandals/flip flops are not allowed in the school and neither are facial piercings. Please dress appropriately and sensibly, avoid wearing shorts or provocative clothing.

- As volunteers are role models for the children, it is forbidden to smoke or consume alcoholic drinks in the school or surrounding areas or going to classes with a hangover. Any use of drugs is illegal in Ecuador.

Show initiative that you are willing to work hard, be happy and motivated and you will get the most out of you time as a volunteer!

What Makes a Good Volunteer?

Volunteers need to be flexible and keep an open mind concerning their placements as situations can arise beyond our control which could require you to be placed at a different project than the one you have initially chosen. We will of course always do our utmost to fulfill your initial wishes but do remember that where you are going is quite different from where you are coming and as such one should be prepared for things not always going according to plan.

Volunteering and intercultural travel share a common trait: the more you put into it, the more you get out of it. This program is designed for proactive individuals and groups that are prepared to adapt to the local environment and its current needs. Naturally, the scheduling and activities of our program are subject to change. Alterations in activities are mainly due to changes in local conditions, which we believe is part of what makes overseas programs the interesting adventure and incredible learning experience that they are.

How Long Should I Volunteer?

Our projects range from 1 week up to approx. 30 weeks. Projects have a specified minimum stay, then it’s up to you how long you can commit. In our experience the longer you stay the more you will gain, as your understanding of the project broadens and you take on more responsibilities. Every volunteer will be given a certificate of appreciation at the end of their stay as a symbol of volunteering stay.

Accommodatie

You can choose between a private room at homestay accommodation or shared dorm-style accommodation at our volunteer house.

Homestay:
Staying with a host family is a great way to put your Spanish into practice in daily conversation and also to experience the everyday life of a middle class Ecuadorian family. You will be provided with your own room, receive three meals a day on weekdays and one laundry load a week.

Volunteer House:
The volunteer house is located in the lively neighbourhood La Mariscal. Surrounded by restaurants and bars, there is enough to do in the area to not get bored! But our house is comfortable as well: a spacious living room with a TV, DVD and a comfy sofa, a big table to eat with all your housemates and a great kitchen that is fully equipped for you to cook your meals.

Lokaal vervoer

This project is available with or without an arrival transfer from Quito Airport to your accommodation. Arrival transfer is included with the Intro Week, if you choose that option.

How to Get to the Project:
The school is located in the centre of Quito, you can take a bus or taxi to the school from where you are living. The student coordinator will take you the first day to school. A bus costs USD 0.25 and a taxi USD 3 from the syudent accommodation to the school.

Maaltijden

3 meals a day during weekdays are included if you choose the homestay option, otherwise self-catering.

Houd er rekening mee

Please don’t give money directly to co-workers, children or their family, but talk to our volunteer coordinator about how to most wisely invest it in the project.
