Teaching & Education Assistant
We offer opportunities for volunteers to assist with teaching in the following field:
- Primary School
- Junior Secondary School
Subjects vary from language and literacy, science, computer skills, math, environmental studies, physical development, and psycho social skills to creative activities such as music, dance, and art. This teaching program does not include a training process; therefore the volunteer is expected to be capable of conducting classes independently or assist teachers in the classroom.
