Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
The Honduras Child Alliance provides educational enrichment and healthy living programs for children and teens in the north-coast beach community of El Porvenir. Programs include: English & Spanish literacy, computers, arts, intro to science, sports and fitness, group skills/conflict resolution, and more! These projects were initiated in response to our awareness that the cycle of poverty is perpetuated through lack of education. The combined energy of our international volunteers, managers, and directors blends a unique and effective set of skills to support educational and humanitarian projects in an effort to target that cycle. As we collaborate to develop opportunities for children in El Porvenir, we welcome volunteers, sponsors, and cooperation with like-minded organizations.
Our main educational enrichment program offers free English instruction along with literacy immersion in both Spanish and English. Additionally, we include art, music, science, and sports activities. Laptops & Kindles are used for some activities so that students gain skills with technology. Programs operate year-round. * Healthy Snacks Program: Many children in our program experience food insecurity and arrive to class hungry. The Healthy Snacks Program provides a daily, protein filled snack to each child. Snacks are designed to model healthy and locally available food choices. * English Club: Supplemental to PEP+, English Club is an immersive English class for older students who demonstrate a strong desire to practice speaking, reading, and writing English. * PEP-Adultos: English instruction for adults. * Study-Buddies: Adults from our English classes tutor our international volunteers in conversational Spanish and then the volunteers tutor in English. This give and take benefits everyone and builds lasting skills and friendships!
