Get excited for our English immersion programs and camps that may even require you to travel to different parts of the country.
You will placed at a school or university leading English learning activities in non-conventional spaces, in which you will live the cultural exchange, learn about Colombia and share your culture.
Occasionally you will be invited to volunteer at our English Immersion Camps. You will lead recreational and leadership activities with youth.
You will have the opportunity to support the YMCA programs in an administrative and social context in the Regional or International office.
“Not only were the immersion camps great, but working with other volunteers that have passion working with kids too was just warming to me because you understand that you are part of something grander than yourself and the team. I understood that I was part of a tradition that stems back decades of improving lives.”
