The end of the school year brings joy to students and concern for parents as many parents do not know what to do with their children. In response, there are a number of summer courses however, not all families can afford the high costs of these services.

For this reason, Espaanglisch has created the " Summer School Program" which consists of a series of recreational, training and artistic activities aimed at 150+ children and adolescents with the purpose of boosting their abilities and giving them the opportunity to enjoy a useful vacation, a vacation that is both fun and productive and at no cost for the kids. These activities are organized in 3 courses: English, art and collaborative games. The program concludes with a field trip into the countryside with all participants.

We are currently recruiting international volunteers to team up with our local volunteers for our 2022 "Summer School Program" in Peru in January and February.

1. To offer children and adolescents summer courses in a healthy, pleasant, and safe environment.
