Every summer at Amigos, we are fortunate to have a group of volunteers join us for 4-7 weeks to lead and teach in our ‘Escuelita’ (summer camp) program at the Amigos de Jesús Bilingual School. Escuelita volunteers teach and interact with our children almost entirely in English to help the kids continue learning and developing their English language skills during the summer. In addition to entertaining our children and introducing them to new and fun ideas, these volunteers also help give our ‘padrinos’ and ‘madrinas’ a well-deserved break during the day when school isn’t in session. This year, Escuelita volunteers offer music, art, religion, computers, science, and swim classes.
Just like our family, our Escuelita program continues to grow each year and we are very thankful to this group of 10 volunteers who have come to spend the summer with us. Read below to meet this year's Escuelita volunteers and to those 10 volunteers, ¡bienvenidos a la familia de Amigos de Jesús!
