Teachers

With the growth of the school, we are constantly seeking for new volunteers who are willing to live for at least 1 year at ETAM.


I WANT TO BE A VOLUNTEER

WORK CHARACTERISTICS

  • 01

    We are looking for people with experience in teaching children. We give preference to people with pedagogical training who belong to the Seventh-day Adventist Church.

  • 02

    The volunteer needs to understand that he/she will often work with multi-grade classrooms, dealing with children of different ages and with different reading skills.

  • 03

    You will live in a house with three more volunteers. It is essential to know how to work as a team, for the good of the school and also for your personal relationships.

  • 04

    Life in the Amazon Jungle is simple and the climate is very hot and humid. In the community you will live, there is no cell phone signal or 24h electricity.

Maintenance

We are looking for a volunteer or a family, who wants to live in one of the houses we have in the school to take care of the land. This vacancy is for september 2018.

WORK CHARACTERISTICS

  • 01

    ETAM is in the middle of the Amazon rainforest, so much of the work is to make the terrain always clean, avoiding the bushes grow and mowing the grass.

  • 02

    Because we are in the construction phase, the volunteer will also need to follow the progress of the different buildings and lead the workers, so that the deadlines and budgets are all respected.

  • 03

    If you are a family, the wife can help the teachers at school by working as a monitor.

  • 04

    Working in the hot sun is not easy, so the volunteer has to know he’s going to have to work hard. But we are sure it will be a blessing!

Short Mission Trips

If you can´t be a volunteer for a year, you can help us build the school by joining one of our short mission trips.

WORK CHARACTERISTICS

  • 01

    Since it will be only a few days, the work is more intense and the volunteer will need to help in the construction, carrying wood and weeding.

  • 02

    In the short mission trips, volunteers don´t always do the same activities, so you need to be willing to help in different tasks.

  • 03

    During the trip, your house will be a boat in which everyone sleeps in hammocks. There is not much privacy or contact with the outside world, since there is no cell phone signal. Be prepared for simple living conditions

  • 04

    Be open to listen and learn. One of the most satisfying things for us as volunteers is to be able to go home with a different view of life.
