Although no formal teaching experience or qualifications are required, volunteers should have an enthusiastic interest in teaching while simultaneously being a notable role model for these children. Volunteers should be eager to teach and care for these children. Besides, volunteers should also enjoy working with children and be able to think on your feet and come up with creative ways of educating the children.

Since you will be teaching students, you will be expected to dress appropriately. No shorts or sleeveless shirts are to be worn and volunteers must maintain a presentable appearance. Working with children requires patience and flexibility. Volunteers should have a basic understanding of the Spanish language in order to effectively work within these school-based projects.
