CETAP Lucy Looking for Volunteers

The day care center known as CETAP Lucy is looking for volunteers to help a group of disadvantaged children with their English homework; their age ranges from 8 to 14 years and they need short, one-to-one sessions. Although there are a couple of native speaker volunteers who regularly work with the children, the leader of the program, Rocío, is now looking for volunteers who can explain English grammar in Spanish to the students. The volunteers do not need to be native speakers, only proficient users of English. Native speakers with ELT experience and sufficient Spanish to provide help with grammar are most welcome, too. CETAP Lucy is located just outside of Cuenca in Chilcabamba. If you wish to join the program, one of the regular volunteers can pick you up and drop you off at Mall del Rio on Mondays and Wednesdays.
