About

Volunteer at a local orphanage in a suburb of San Jose. This residential facility is home to about 25 children who range in age between toddlers to pre-teens (2yrs-12yrs old). The "Tias" or caretakers at the orphanage need help with everyday tasks for the children.

Volunteer Activities May Include:
  • Helping children learn conversational English
  • Teaching basics like colors, numbers, letters and basic math.
  • Preparing, serving and helping to feed the younger children
  • Create arts and crafts, songs, sports activities with the kids.

Volunteers should be flexible, caring, be a self-starter and have strong Spanish skills. Volunteers are asked to wear long pants and closed toe shoes at the orphanage. Language Immersion lessons can be combined with this volunteer project.
