Dear partners and (current and future) volunteachers,
Due to COVID-19, we have had to pause for a while.
We'll be back together soon! Stay tuned!
WHO WE ARE, WHAT WE STAND FOR
EFALL Project (English for All) has its origin in the Civil Association English for ALL, a nongovernmental organization, and believes in teaching English as a tool for education that helps young people to achieve their goals with autonomy, empowering them to face the demands of today’s world.
AND WHY? To offer new opportunities to the lives of young people aged 11-24 years old, and contribute to the development of their personal, professional and social competences, thus providing access to a properly articulated status of citizenship.
ABOUT US (English For All Project)
The initiative was brought about by a group of educators in the teaching of English to teenagers and young adults. They form the teaching staff of the project, and create courses for that target age group. They also provide teacher training and education to the volunteer teachers, our volunteachers.
HOW WE WORK
The EFALL Project joins partner companies or organizations which work with Supplementary Education to young people, contributing to their educational action.
The project is responsible for the training and for all the support offered to teachers as well as the preparation of the materials used in courses. The contracting partner provides the classroom, organizes groups from 5 to 15 students and a 1-hour weekly class which, then, becomes part of the schedule of the course. The companies offer the courses to their public, search and select teachers, volunteers (volunteachers) or not.
It is essential that students have a taste for pleasure and learning, so for this reason the courses are developed aiming at those objectives. The classes always bring a playfulness aspect and use interaction and challenge as teaching tools. Games, competitions, role-play, dramatization, music, dance and art projects are some of the strategies used.
According to the availability of the partner, the weekly lessons can be morning or afternoon, Monday through Saturday.
Partners are companies and NGOs which
Work with adolescents and young people and value their knowledge, as they are committed to their training and educational processes
