Santa Cruz Galapagos Teaching English

In Santa Cruz, Volunteers will be staying in Puerto Ayora, Santa Cruz Galápagos Island. Volunteer work will involve teaching classes to local business workers and students in a private English Institude in Puerto Ayora.

Santa Cruz is one of the several islands that can be visited while staying in the Galapagos. On the weekends, volunteers have the opportunity to enjoy exploring the other islands like Isabela and San Cristobal. By having connections with locals through teaching English, volunteers are given the opportunity to get to know the Galapagos Islands on a more intimate level, unlike the typical tourist.
