There is often no fixed structure for activities and it is important to be proactive. This may especially include homework assistance and tutoring, since some children may have illiterate parents who are unable to facilitate their children’s learning. The ages of the children typically ranges from 6 to 14 years old. Recreational activities can include painting, dancing, drawing etc, but interns may assist with the organization of other activities.

An understanding of basic Spanish is required. All interns who are not yet intermediate – fluent Spanish speakers are strongly encouraged to take Spanish language lessons in addition to their internship program.

Intake dates for new interns are typically offered every Monday. The minimum duration requirement forYouth Development & Education internship internship placements is a commitment of at least 2 weeks. Apply online to formally express your interest (it’s free and non-obligatory to apply) and – upon being accepted – register to confirm your internship in the field of Youth Development & Education.
