BECA invites ~6 international volunteers to join our volunteer teaching team each year, supporting both elementary and middle school students at 2 local schools, San Jeronimo Bilingual School and Santa Monica Bilingual School. At a high level, each volunteer teacher is responsible for: leading an English curriculum for students in grades PreK-9 in ELA, Science, Math, Art, PE and Computers (all classes are capped at 25 students, and most teachers take on one full curriculum for a grade level) supporting fellow teachers in the classroom, getting to know your students and their families , and immersing oneself in Honduran culture .

Don’t worry - we’ll be there to support you with every step along the way!

Mission Statement

BECA exists to provide high quality, affordable bilingual education to the educationally disenfranchised while fostering meaningful cultural exchange.

Description

Bilingual Education for Central America (BECA) is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization founded in 2002. What began as an idea born in the homes of several Honduran families has since grown into three community-supported bilingual schools run in partnership with low-income communities in Honduras. Our volunteer-driven bilingual school model creates an environment in which Central American students learn from dedicated volunteer teachers, and those volunteers learn from the community in which they are immersed.

Our model is built on partnership between Hondurans committed to high quality, progressive education and international volunteers interested in a truly meaningful cultural collaboration. We are not so arrogant to think that we North Americans can solve Central America’s problems unilaterally. We alone do not have the answers to the region’s challenges, which is why we hold collaboration with local partners as an article of faith. Only if we work together with respect, honesty, integrity, and equality, do we believe we will accomplish our goal of achieving a sustainable educational and economic transformation.
