I WANT TO BE A VOLUNTEER

We believe that education can change the future of our country, therefore we aim to promote equal opportunities
in Brazil by teaching English and promoting social integration. If you relate to these values
and want to change other people’s reality, join us and be a volunteer of Cidadão Pró-Mundo!

 

As a CPM Volunteer, you can choose between the regular English course and the CPM QUALIFY project.

The regular english course starts at the basic level, and after completing 10 semesters, students complete the course with B1 Level of English proficiency (intermediate level), which is equivalent to the third level of the Common European Framework of References for Languages (CEFR)*.

For students who are interested in continuing to develop their skills in relation to the English language after completing the regular course, Cidadão Pró-Mundo offers the option of being part of the CPM Qualify project, a 1-year intensive course that aims to prepare students to take the Cambridge’s international proficiency certification exam, the most widely recognized assessment system in the world.

Important information for CANDIDATES INTERESTED IN BECOMING VOLUNTEERS

* Because of the current pandemic, the Cidadão Pró-Mundo English course, which is normally taught 100% in person, will be completely online during the first semester of 2022.

* Considering that we were extremely successful in adapting the format of the english course to the online version, we decided to broaden the scope and impact of CPM activities. So, even when CPM classes return 100% to the face-to-face model (expected to be on the 2nd semester 2022), we will maintain the possibility for some students and volunteers to continue in the online format (with the exception of CPM Qualify classes, which will continue to be online);

* Therefore, as candidates apply for the 1st semester of 2022, they will have to choose whether they prefer a Teaching Unit that usually offers face-to-face classes, if they would also like to act in the online format (Virtual Unit) or if they intend to volunteer exclusively for the online format.

* We will prioritize candidates that do not reside in the cities where CPM has Teaching Units when we select volunteers for Virtual Units, and candidates who do not fit this condition will be considered only if there are vacancies available.

* It is essential to know that all candidates who applied for a Teaching Unit other than the Virtual Unit, must attend face-to-face to teach the classes when the course returns to face-to-face.
