The English Opens Doors Program (EODP) is generated by the Chilean Ministry of Education, supported by the United Nations Development Program, with the goal to promote English as a second language in particularly less advantaged areas across the country. Right now, the program is specifically targeted at public elementary or high schools where the students are more likely coming from a rather disadvantaged family/background. As volunteer/teacher, my main responsibility is to motivate the learnings of the students and to help them better their spoken competences in particular by creating an atmosphere that allows students to feel more comfortable and expressive in an all-English environment. I will be provided with a classroom dedicated to my class and I'm also expected to create a social/activity club for the school where I'm placed at, I'm really having a few ideas I can see myself working on them and will hopefully help my students in Chile, therefore I'd really appreciate any help with funding my teaching projects and decoration of the classroom. All the funds gathered will solely be going towards teaching materials/supplies, classroom decorations, students' stationaries, and any possible teaching-related expenses.
