|Since a certain language proficiency
level is required to participate in our volunteer programs,
you will first spend time becoming familiar with the language
at our language center in Brazil. The length of
this training will depend on your current level of proficiency
If your language level is already such that communication
is possible without the aid of an interpreter, you may
begin your volunteer project right away while taking language
classes part-time. There is always something
new to learn about a language! You will work at your volunteer
project(s) site 3-4 hours per day (in the afternoon),
2-5 days per week, so morning classes will not interrupt
your work schedule.
All you have to do is
write and tell us about your strengths, abilities and
interests, we will be able to give you the
of several suitable projects in which you may participate.
Then, before you know it, you're off to your school, development
project, athletic field or music room!
