When you arrive in Ecuador, you will receive teaching instruction from the program’s staff and will plan lessons with your fellow volunteers.

Accepted volunteers will receive email notifications when there is an update. You may also wish to read last year’s curriculum, which will give you an idea of what we have taught in the past.
