Our amazing school located close to the beautiful Caribbean Coast and Bay Islands urgently needs volunteers for the 2017-18 school year. While we can't offer you any pay, the rewards for teaching here come from the life changing results our teachers make to our wonderful kids lives and the opportunity to serve an amazing community in a beautiful part of the world.
Please take a moment to read our brief description of our school and then visit our website to see current and former volunteer testimonials on how our teachers feel about the impact we make on the community we serve.
Cofradía Bilingual School is a small school located in Cofradía, Cortes, Honduras. We offer a high-quality bilingual education to over 300 students from kindergarten to grade 11. Our dedicated team of international volunteers work together with locally recruited Honduran teachers to provide students with a much-needed alternative to the public school system. Our students receive an immersion-based bilingual education from native and fluent English speakers from around the world. Graduating as English speakers provides our students with many more opportunities than they would otherwise have. Many of our students come from very low socioeconomic backgrounds and a bilingual education gives them the ability to end the cycle of poverty for their family. Our graduates are motivated, passionate people who are ready to build a brighter future for themselves, their community, and their country.
All volunteer-taught classes are conducted in English, so Spanish-language skills are not required. Similarly, prior teaching experience is not required to work at CBS. While experience in education is undoubtedly beneficial, we value more highly motivated, passionate, and hard-working people. We are currently recruiting English teachers for Kinder (ages 4-5) through 11th Grade (ages 16-17). The CBS school year goes from mid August 2017 to June 2018. English teachers may also teach Math (grade one only), Science, and Physical Education. Our teachers work Monday-Friday from 7:00am-2:10pm.
While teaching at our school is completely voluntary, accommodation and two meals a day during the week are provided.
