English volunteers for Cuenca high school students

Colegio Daniel Cordova is looking for native English speakers to engage their students in English conversation groups. Students range from 14 to 17 years old. The school is near Hospital Vicente Corral Moscoso. It helps if you speak a little Spanish but proficiency is not necessary, as the goal is for them to be exposed to native English.
