Additional Information
We expect the volunteer to be more than just a Teacher. We expect them to be involved with the staff, the students, and parents everywhere in the campus. Some basic Portuguese or Spanish is a plus, and we expect the volunteer to keep studying Portuguese when they arrive. But they must speak English most of the time, in order to create an "International Environment" in the campus.
