Community Program: Intercambio de Lenguas (Language Exchange)
Do you want to practice your Spanish? Are you interested in improving the lives of Spanish speaking people in your community? Do you want experience teaching English as a Second Language in a casual environment? If you answered yes to any of these questions and have at least two free hours a week, Edúcate Ya is has the perfect opportunity for you!
One of our most popular community programs is Intercambio de Lenguas, a program that matches local Latinos who need assistance with their English with other locals who would like to improve their Spanish. The program is technically structured for English speakers to volunteer as English tutors for Latinos that are serious about studying/learning English. In return for their time, tutors can ask their partner for help with their Spanish homework, or simply have a weekly opportunity to practice their Spanish. It is also a great way to make new cross-cultural friendships and networks. 90 minutes of the class is dedicated to practicing English, the last 30 minutes is for Spanish.
- Minimum commitment of 2 hours a week for 6 months
- Must be reliable
- Must attend a 3 hour training session to begin teaching
- Strong proficiency in English required
We are currently recruiting administrative volunteers to help us with outreach and networking efforts to better promote this program within the Portland Latino community.
If you or anyone you know could be of assistance with this process, please share this within your network or contact us to speak with the Organization’s Director: Rafael Arellano.
The next volunteer training will be held on Saturday, June 24th, 2017. Sign up today!
