Project Description: Humberto Luna is a school composed of three levels of education financed by the state:

1. Nursery school

2. Primary school (approximately 800 children)

3. Secondary school (approximately 1500 children)

As a result of the state´s funding, the students´ education is completely paid for and many underprivileged children can receive the opportunity to better their future. Currently the school has five teachers working in the nursery school, twenty-six teachers in the primary school and sixty-one teachers in the secondary school. Each classroom contains approximately thirty-five children.

 

Volunteer Responsibilities: The volunteers can help the teachers with different tasks, depending on their qualifications or interests. Many volunteers choose to teach courses in English, Natural Sciences, Mathematics or Physical Education. If your level of Spanish allows it, you may also construct small group sessions on your own. Teaching in the secondary school, however, requires at least an intermediate level of Spanish. Although not required, having previous experience with children would be helpful.
