International Volunteer Program
We are looking for motivated people who want to spend at least two months in Quito and help out at the Refugio. Help is needed in the pedagogical area: spending time with the kids, playing, doing crafts, helping with homework, teaching English, resolving conflicts, and working in specific areas (garden, bakery, etc.) according to experience.
We are looking for volunteers who are available as little as one afternoon a week to serve as positive mentors for children ages 5 to 16. You could teach crafts, help with homework, read stories, teach sports or music, or lead the children in other activities to help them build skills and self-confidence.
