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 Spanish-speakers who need assistance with their English with other locals who would like to improve their Spanish. Volunteers are trained to be ESL tutors and are matched with Spanish-speaking community members who want to improve their English. 90 minutes of the class is dedicated to practicing English, the last 30 minutes is for Spanish. Intercambio is a great way to make new cross-cultural friendships and networks.
Requirements to be a volunteer:
- Must attend a 3 hour training session to begin teaching
- Minimum commitment of 2 hours a week for 6 months
- Must be reliable
- 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 Executive Director, Rafael Arellano.
The next volunteer training is March 17, 2018 3-6PM!
