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.

There is a year round need for volunteers as we operate the regular programs during the school year (Feb-Nov) as well as a camp style program during the November thru January Honduran school break.

There is a 6 week minimum time commitment


Accommodation

There are two volunteer houses that are walking distance from the projects. The houses come with electricity, water, kitchen and wifi.
The cost is 42$ a week for the first 6 weeks, after that 35$ per week. If you are staying for 6+ mos, rent can be further reduced.
Volunteers need to buy their own food, which is very inexpensive in that area (about $20-$25 a week).
There are 2 house managers that are always at the houses, so volunteers are never alone!



Create/Update our Website

We have recently moved our old Wordpress website to a new Wordpress theme. We need some help cleaning it up and making things look organized and inviting. If you are familiar with wordpress, we could really use your help!

We offer several volunteer-powered programs in 3 locations around the community. Our main program focuses on academic enrichment in English and Spanish literacy and includes lots of 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. We partner with our local firefighters to provide Health Fairs, Emergency First Aid training and other programs to benefit the community. Our volunteers also assist with dental and medical teams and light construction projects.

It's never boring in El Porvenir!


Up to 5 people

Housing is $42 USD per week for the first 6 weeks and then drops to $35 per week from there. Upon acceptance to the program, there is a one time donation of $160 USD. There are no other fees with the organization.

The Honduras Child Alliance operates volunteer-powered programs that are staffed by good-hearted people from all over the world. Inexpensive housing is available for $4-$6 per day 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!
