A variety of qualifications are available on many of our projects. For example, BTEC certificates and diplomas on our Group conservation projects and TEFL certificates and BTECs on most of our teaching projects.

For more information on these qualifications, please see the qualifications section of our website or ask your volunteer advisor.


Local Honduran families know that their children would have a much better chance for the future with a well-rounded education combined with good English and computer skills. There are many families who could never afford to send their children to a good school and this is one of the reasons for the increasing disparity between the wealthy and the poor in Honduras.

The project focuses on providing education at a public school in one of the poorer areas of the city. Efforts now concentrate on recruiting the very best international mix of teachers to join the annual volunteer team. These teachers not only bring a great deal of experience, but also expose the students to the benefits of a truly multicultural education. Many residents have seen the value of a higher level of education for their children and other educators have followed the example, bringing a global education to the most disadvantaged children in the community.


You will be able to draw on your enthusiasm and creativity in developing classroom activities to expand the children's knowledge of the English language, along with a variety of other subjects such as sports lessons. Working both in the classroom and the playground you will provide the children with the friendship and guidance to build their confidence.

Evenings and weekends are yours to enjoy as you wish and you can explore the area's natural beauty or simply swing in a hammock beneath a tropical sky. Should you wish to develop your skills further you can add evening Spanish classes to your experience, at extra cost, helping you bridge the gap between cultures and languages.


There are two options for arriving into Honduras, either to fly into San Pedro Sula or direct to La Ceiba. If you fly into La Ceiba you will be collected from the airport by a friendly local staff member, who will then escort you to your home in La Ceiba, a port town on the north coast of Honduras, where you will live for the duration of your stay.  If you are arriving into San Pedro Sula you will then make your way to La Ceiba via bus, detailed instructions for which will be provided prior to your departure.  If you choose the San Pedro Sula option please aim to arrive no later than 2pm in order to make the last bus. During your placement you will be no more than 10 blocks walking distance from your home to the school every morning and afternoon, giving you the chance to soak up the sun and explore the local environment.


You will be staying with a friendly Honduran host family, allowing you to completely immerse yourself in the culture and language of Honduras as you will be living just like a local! You will have a private room and bathroom facilities will be available. Your host family will be welcoming and friendly and will try to make you feel like a member of the family.


You will be provided with three meals a day. These meals will be typical Honduran dishes consisting of beans, rice, tortillas, meat, cheese and eggs. Food can also be obtained at local supermarkets. Sample some of the country's local food such as meaty tortillas, fried beans, and papaya.
