The impact of education is boundless and the influence our Teaching volunteers have on the communities we work in goes well beyond the classroom. Whether teaching English, other subjects or working on extracurricular activities, the students are eager to learn and participate.
On the Teaching English project, you will work with children, teenagers, and adults, providing teaching in English. Your tasks will include running language classes, tutoring for school exams, provide support to local teachers or team up with other volunteers/interns in traditional classrooms, assisting with homework and organizing educational games and activities. You can also assist in summer camps, during the school holidays.
You do not need to be qualified or experienced teachers to participate, as you will have our support and assistance during our teacher training. However, we encourage you to come prepared by taking some online teaching training if possible.
