Schools and Organized Groups
_We invite your school or organized group to visit and work at My Little Red House Bilingual School! We
are looking for interested groups of native-English-speaking high

groups to come to our school for periods of a week or more. These short-term volunteers would be able to practice their Spanish, travel, and help out with English classes.
would be a unique and rewarding experience that you will remember for a
life-time. Most importantly, you will be helping us provide a better
education to local Honduran students which will impact their lives
significantly. Please consider joining us!
Short-term volunteers fly into San Pedro Sula and usually spend the night at a B & B before taking the five hour scenic bus ride to Ocotepeque the next day. Please contact us for information about airport pick-up service, the B & B, and which bus has direct service to Ocotepeque.
Short term volunteers will pay for their stay at a local hotel in Ocotepeque. There are two hotels where volunteers often stay, just a few minutes walk to the school. Both hotels, Maya Chortis Hotel and Hotel Sandoval, have websites and you can reserve your room either online or by email. Please see the photos, below. Food is very reasonably priced in Ocotepeque and you will be able to eat a basic meal from about $3.00 U.S. to a more elaborate meal for around $7.00 U.S. There is also a local outdoor market which sells fresh fruit and vegetables everyday.

Depending on present availability and needs, you may be able to
present something educational to the students. Lead a lesson on a topic
you know well, teach a valuable skill, or discuss educational or job
options our students might consider. We're open to new ideas that enrich
our students' education. Sometimes we need help
with reorganizing and re-shelving library books, lawn and plant care for
our playground area, general maintenance of the school, or technical
needs of our equipment. We also from time to time, have projects that
require additional resources to carry out such as marketing and
advertising and help with organizing the upcoming school year.
Administrative volunteers are needed from time to time, who would focus on non-teaching administrative duties. If you have particular skills that you'd like to share please contact us and let us know how you might be able to help.
