Our Full Immersion Volunteer Program in Quito is the fastest and most effective way to learn Spanish.
During this program, you will be working with one of the communities in Quito and after 4 weeks you will also have the opportunity to travel to different parts of the country as volunteers and immerse yourself in the culture.
The Full Immersion Volunteer Program is a combination of 4 hours of individual Spanish classes at Equinox Spanish School and 4 hours of community work each day from Monday to Friday. You can learn more about our community service by visiting www.ecuadorvolunteer.org
Our students can do volunteer work at no extra cost but must necessarily stay in a carefully selected host family that will be the appropriate environment to practice Spanish and know part of our culture.
This community service program aims to serve the most vulnerable sectors of Ecuadorian society disinterestedly without seeking external recognition. We respect the privacy of the people who benefit from our work, therefore we do not publish the details of the volunteer projects on our website. Our projects help where there are gaps and needs that require the generous support of hands and hearts willing to give time and effort.
If volunteering is not an English teacher it is important that students have a good level of oral and written Spanish so that they are able to transmit information and knowledge in a fluid and efficient way.
Volunteer projects are running for a minimum of one month.
For volunteers who wish to serve as English teachers or assistant teachers, we ask that you participate in our program for a minimum of three months. In this way we can ensure the continuity of teachers and the teaching methods offered to students. It is recommended, but not necessary, that volunteers interested in being English speaking teachers and other subjects take the TESOL course to prepare them and give them the necessary tools to fulfill their teaching responsibilities.
Full immersion volunteer program in Spanish attracts many college students. There is a possibility that your Spanish and volunteer program in Ecuador may be transferable as service credits at your home university.

This Spanish course is very popular with students, so be sure to check in early as spaces are limited.
