What We Need

Volunteers teach English, computers, art, photography, sports, math and so much more! We are looking for energetic and enthusiastic volunteers who are 20+ years. Our volunteers come from all over the world and we accept all levels of ability to speak Spanish and English. You will be helping operate programs mainly for elementary age children but we also work with teens and adults.

What we Provide

Volunteer House

There are two volunteer houses that are walking distance from the projects. The houses come with electricity, water, kitchen and WIFI. There are 2 house managers that are always at the houses, so volunteers are never alone!

The cost is $42 a week ($6 a day) for the first 6 weeks and $35 a week ($5 a day) after that. If you are staying for 6+ months, rent can be further reduced.

The Honduras Child Alliance operates volunteer-powered programs that are staffed by good-hearted people from all over the world. Inexpensive housing is available but please be prepared to make your own travel arrangements to Honduras. Due to the volunteer nature of the program, HCA uses all funds to benefit the children in their programs and is not able to pay your way. This is a very inexpensive volunteer opportunity but be prepared to pay for your own travel and food.

We incorporate technology (laptops, kindles, digital photography, raspberry pi) and healthy eating into all programs. Our program is about relationships- both with the Hondurans and with volunteers from all around the world!

**Opportunity for rent reduction for helping with social media

Honduras Child Alliance provides educational enrichment and healthy living programs in 3 locations around the seaside community of El Porvenir. Our main program focuses on English and Spanish literacy and includes art, games, computers, science, and sports. The children are in grades 1-6 and our program is a supplement to the public schools.

There are also free English and computer classes for teens and two levels of English for adults. Moreover, we partner with our local firefighters to provide health fairs, emergency first aid training, and other programs that benefit the community. Our volunteers also assist with dental and medical teams and light construction projects. Via a partnership with the local public hospital, we also accept healthcare and dental volunteers who wish to gain international experience.
