What do we do?
We provide English learning sessions and tour guide training to people in situations of vulnerability. This project is offered as a combined language learning and skills development opportunity.
Why do we do it?
People lack opportunity, not skill. English is a great skill to develop that helps to connect globally and expand employment opportunities. In Colombia, many people do not have access to quality education options.
Who do we do it for?
This project is aimed at populations in vulnerable situations, mainly young people between 16 and 20 years old. We have implemented the methodology in Commune 13 (San Javier) and Commune 1 (Santo Domingo).
How do we do it?
We use an experience-based CLIL methodology focused on functional English, storytelling and being a guide. The sessions are offered free of charge and have the support of public entities such as El Cedezo and the José Luis Arroyave Restrepo de San Javier Library Park.
