Volunteer Opportunities for Students

Mountain School students have the opportunity to volunteer in our community library by helping with library activities and by tutoring and reading to the local children. Students can also help out with daily activities such as caring for the gardens and animals, and manual labour. What is available depends upon the season. Students may also offer English classes to youth in the community, including students at El Instituto Privado para la Sostentibilidad Otto René Castillo. Volunteer placements might be arranged in nearby communities depending upon a number of factors including the amount of time a student has available, a student’s fluency in Spanish, and any relevant skill level. We prefer to get to know you before we make arrangements with our neighbours to send volunteers.
