Right now, NAFE US needs a project coordinator to start a new project in the highlands of Peru. Volunteer coordinator(s) will have financial and emotional support from us and physical/developmental support from the family they will be staying with. This volunteer needs to be bilingual in English and Spanish; independent and ready for a life-changing, adventurous and highly rewarding experience. This is a definite resume booster and a chance to be the person who develops a project that will change the lifes of a community forever.
The project is located in Amaru, which is a little more than an hour outside of Cusco, near a town called Pisaq (you can find Pisaq on the map). It is a small farming community that is looking for us to come teach the children English, opening a world of opportunities for the children as they grow up.
A local family has opened their home to us to host our after-school program, as well as house the project coordinator. Their home is authentic and clean and the man of the house is a professional chef, so the food is delicious.
We have set it up that the program run Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday after school and will be focused on teaching English using fresh, innovative methods and activities to help the children learn on a practical level, while having fun. The program runs three days a week allowing long-term volunteers to travel the other days. Since the location is remote and has spotty signal, it would be essential that volunteers had time to go to the city regularly. Pisaq is 15 minutes away and Cusco is 90 minutes.
