Highly rewarding volunteer experience

I volunteered at SKIP for 6 weeks in the English and Economic Development Programmes. The English department at Skip is a highly professional, with bi-weekly training sessions and constant ongoing feedback, helping you to improve your English teaching skills. A highly level of importance is placed on preparing lesson plans in order to create fun, innovative and diverse activities to engage the students. This more captivating way of teaching is not practiced much in Peru, therefore it is very rewarding to see the students want to engage and learn English in your lessons.

The NGO is well structured in order to make sure you are used to your fullest potential. When I was there over half the volunteers where Peruvian, with many involved in the management, leadership and co-ordination roles. This sustainability, coupled its structure made SKIP a highly effective NGO in helping the community it served in El Povenir.

English leader

The English department at SKIP is a creative atmosphere where training and guidance are readily available. It is also a great place for personal development and touching upon new horizons. SKIP gives an important focus to the professional development of teachers and allows new teachers to share experiences and exchange ideas with experienced, qualified teachers. In no other educational establishment have I seen teachers foster their skills so fast.
