Volunteers are placed in urban and rural communities in and around the project locations where they would teach English as well as other subjects to the local children. As a volunteer, you will be teaching English and other subjects such as Mathematics, Geography and General Knowledge to the children. The knowledge, skills, and ideas that volunteers from other cultures can bring to a Ghanaian student is invaluable for the students.
Teaching Project volunteers in Ghana mainly to teach local children in village schools. Although English is the official language of Ghana, the children rarely get to learn from non-Ghanaian speakers of the language.
Volunteers do NOT have to be native speakers of English but willing to volunteer in a village to help children who are ready to learn. Volunteers will receive assistance from the coordinators and the local school regarding the lesson plans and teaching curriculum. You could well find yourself teaching groups of children in an ‘open-air classroom’ where there are no chalkboards and the children have no books or pencils. The need for improvisation & creativity in teaching methods is paramount and can challenge the most experienced teacher, but the rewards are amazing.
Volunteers work for around 5 hrs in a day for 5 days in a week. Volunteers can bring along teaching materials such as picture books, instruments, flash cards, art supplies, and songs. Classes are generally in session five days a week.
