Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Fundacion Patiño

  • 5 people are interested

We work at national level with centres in Cochabamba, La Paz, Santa Cruz and Potosí, promoting pedagogical activities and dissemination of cultural expressions. The core of educational activities focuses on childhood and adolescence, through teachers as the main lever of impact.

Therefore, the Foundation is looking for an EDUCATOR. Main goals of the volunteering mission would be:

  1. General support of the educational activities of the Program (especially for children in peripheric neighbourhoods), with a focus on educational innovation, STEAM projects, artistic-educational projects, etc.
  2. Develop new material and activities for interactive learning, with a special focus on children with learning difficulties.
  3. Possibility of developing holiday workshops for children, and workshops for adults.
  4. Develop small projects to improve the conditions of the centres (such as management of activity spaces, and especially libraries).
  5. Support in the theme of "Sustainable schools" (focused environmental and agroecological themes, with activities like urban gardens etc.)
  6. Strengthen and promote alliances with external partners (educational units, municipal actors, teachers, etc.) to sensitize/involve on issues of human development and education.
The main sites of the mission will be Potosí (Proyecto Encuentros) and Cochabamba (Red de Bibliotecas). Nevertheless, the Foundation could ask the international volunteer to do short visits to other projects.
