Projects Abroad volunteer teaching young students

Situated 1000km from the Ecuadorian coast, the Galapagos Islands are well-known for its spectacular scenery and interesting wildlife. You have the opportunity to volunteer with Projects Abroad on our Care & Community Short-term Special project and spend two weeks living on the beautiful island of San Cristobal.

Education and learning English is vital for the children on the island and you will provide creative educational activities for them at one of the local kindergartens. You will assist the teachers and provide extra attention to individual children.

The project also has a community aspect, where you will work alongside other volunteers on physical improvements, such as painting one of the classrooms or helping with a beach clean-up initiative.

Living on the Galapagos Islands also provides a great opportunity to speak Spanish with local people if you're interested in improving or picking up some language skills. Your patient and loving host family will be the best Spanish teachers you’ve ever had!

A weekend trip to a neighbouring island is included for all Short-term Special volunteers. This is an ideal way to see a really remote corner of this world-famous eco-system, learn about a unique island culture, relax and have fun with other volunteers.

This placement is fully researched, safety audited and risk assessed in accordance with the British Standard BS8848 for the Adventure Travel Sector.
