Short term volunteers
Can join organizations that:
- Focus on animal welfare. Volunteers in Colombia works together with an animal shelter that accommodates cats and dogs that for various reasons no longer have an owner. Because there is not enough staff, the dogs are often inside all day. You can let the dogs out as a volunteer, so he or she can play outside and get some fresh air. If your knowledge of the Spanish language is sufficient, you can also do administrative work.
- Giving English classes. Volunteers in Colombia cooperates with a number of NGOs that also accept short term Volunteers. You can volunteer here to support the English classes that are given weekly by these organizations in different neighbourhoods in Medellin.
It is not possible to share your expertise as a short term volunteer with all organizations with which VC has a partnership. Therefore, we are very careful to place volunteers with children. We will always choose in the best interest of the child. We believe that it is not in the best interests of children living in homes that volunteers with whom they build a bond change often.
