Long-Term Volunteers

Interns are a vital part of CR’s educational program.  They teach English in our after school programs and for partner educational institutions. They are encouraged to teach other subjects in their areas of expertise such as art, computers, and music. Interns with special athletic skills are always welcome, particularly swimming and soccer.  Interns have the freedom to develop their own curriculum and extra-curricular programs.
