Overall rating: 0 based on 0 reviews

Program Description

We accept volunteers throughout the school year to teach English.
Volunteers will instruct a combination of classes for about 20 to 30 hours each week:
OBS Kindergarten, OBS First Grade, English Enrichment for Kids, High School After School English
Volunteers are responsible for helping the classroom instructor in running activities and also providing support for student education. Volunteers will also lead activities in English and plan Spanish or English activities according to the needs of the classroom teacher.
There is the potential for other opportunities depending on the requirements of the school. You may be asked to assist our long-term volunteers in teaching adult English lessons or assisting administrative projects and non-school projects including fundraising, conservation, recycling, and activities involving the Hacienda.
No matter what activities you may be involved with, you are sure to have a phenomenally fun and uplifting experience at Ometepe Bilingual School. This school is located in a wonderful area with a lot to do and explore.


Work on the largest island-in-a-lake and teacher in the shadow of a volcano! You will have a chance to give back to the rural Nicaraguan community and ensure that students have the best chance for success at Ometepe Bilingual School. This is an important bilingual volunteer opportunity, so join us today!


English fluency is required, as is an interest in teaching English and working with children. Prior experience teaching or working with children and Spanish language skills are optional, but may be helpful.
