Program overview

Local educators in the communities surrounding Oxapampa are keen to accept support for teaching English to local children. Volunteers on this program can get involved in supporting the work of local educators as they teach English to children across a range of ages and English language levels. 

Oxapampa communities have highlighted English language learning as an area of growth that is important to them. Being fluent in conversational English allows community members to access greater opportunities afforded by Oxapampa’s tourism sector. 

Communication with community members on this program is conducted in Spanish. If you are not fluent in Spanish, Spanish lessons will be required. These can be requested when you book onto the program. Simply speak to your Enrolment Manager to learn more. 

*Please note that school holidays in Peru run from the middle of December to the middle of March, with another two-week winter break usually at the end of July till the beginning of August. During school holidays, participants will take part in alternative activities which might include summer school programs and reforestation initiatives.
