We need volunteers for EnglishWorks - Skype Volunteer Project

EnglishWorks focuses on the development and improvement in its students’ ability to communicate in English.
We use tourism as the context for learning English vocabulary and for conversation practice.
Students have the opportunity to hear and speak English throughout the lessons, using digital tools in the classroom. They also have in-class support from teachers and volunteers.
EnglishWorks operates in low-income areas of Rio de Janeiro where residents rarely have the opportunity to interact with native and/or fluent speakers of English. We use Skype for one-to-one conversation practice between native/fluent speakers and students. This gives students a chance to use the English they learned in class and to go further in conversations if they are ready for it.
One-to-one conversation with native/fluent English speakers also exposes students to different cultures.

The goal

The main goal of the Skype volunteers project is to increase the opportunities for students to hear and speak English.

Profile of the volunteer
A person interested in volunteering with EnglishWorks, must believe in social change through education.
We need a minimum of 30 minutes per week at the day selected for the Skype conversations with students. It takes another 10 minutes a week to study the dialogue for that week.

A volunteer must have access to a computer with a good internet connection and a place where conversation will not be interrupted by noise.


Volunteers receive a certificate at the end of the course.

Location, duration and resources
To volunteer you don't need to leave your home or workplace.

EnglishWorks in 2017 operates in 10 areas of Rio de Janeiro It is a partnership between the Sequoia Foundation ,Pastoral do Menor and Rio Solidário through a project called Casa Futuro Agora.
Classrooms are equipped with internet and there is a laptop for each student.
Classes are two hours, once a week.
