Type d’activité: Enseignement
Teach school children from local communities on the stunning Island of Florianopolis!

Description du projet et du rôle des volontaires

The public schools in Florianopolis are attended by around 700 students aged between 6 and 16 years-old. These schools are supported by the local government and the students are all from the local community and do not pay anything to attend the school. Most of the students in public schools are from the local villages.
The schools hope that by having volunteers helping, this will broaden the student’s horizons, help the students to see how important is to learn a second language, especially if it is English, as well as introduce the volunteers culture and how important it is to understand and respect it. The children (and teachers!) benefit enormously from the experience of having a native speaker working together with them!
Volunteers are welcome to either assist the English teacher in regular lessons, introducing their culture, motivating students to learn about it, presenting new possibilities or volunteers are also welcome to develop their own teaching project, being the “main teacher” in this case. Anything that a volunteer can contribute to the students’ development and interest in learning is welcome.
The period of regular lessons is 4 hours long, with the children attending either the morning or afternoon sessions. The morning’s starts at 8am and finishes at midday and the afternoon session is from 1pm to 5pm.
In these regular public schools, English is taught in the mornings and afternoons on 4 days of the school week, to different groups of children, so the main teacher has in total 32 hours of teaching per week. You can work fulltime – 4 mornings and 4 afternoons – or choose some mornings and some afternoons, if you prefer having more free time to explore the city.
There are approximately 35 children per class, some are at the beginner’s stage and some are at intermediate level of English.
The school is attended by 280 students, with 30% of them economically less fortunate so they do not pay anything to study here.
You will assist the teachers in their regular lessons, introducing your culture! Volunteers are also welcome to develop their own teaching project, being the “main teacher”, and in this case the local teacher and coordinator will be there to help you with planning the lessons. You are also very welcome to bring your ideas to contribute to the children’s process of learning, using your abilities and the school’s structure, such as playground, garden, kitchen, arts room …
