Volunteer in Ecuador, our School is an institution that was previously hosted by the International Foundation Lyceum, which offers a bachelor of science through a dynamic curriculum. The school is based on a sustainable criteria through a team of teachers all committed to meeting institutional goals, sense of community, and care of the environment that promote diverse problem solving skills.

The institution takes hold as the main educational center of the parish Zámbiza, forming leaders, innovators, and creative graduates based on a quality education that promotes the formation of youth in achieving academic skills, a framed care of nature that allows social and economic development of the nation.  More than 150 young people attend this institution founded in 2003, all young people who come from the same parish.

At the high school you can help by teaching English to all grades. You will aid the English teachers and any suggestions or ideas you have are welcome. It is important that you are committed and responsible.  These youth are very affectionate, sensitive and vulnerable, becoming attached to those close them quickly.  It is important that you take your work serious, show up on time, each day, and tell the youth with anticipation when you will be leaving.
