The program is open to all volunteers whether you are on a gap year, at university or wanting a career break.
Teaching in low-income communities can increase employment opportunities and ultimately help people to become economically independent. These students, of all ages and backgrounds would appreciate the opportunity to interact with fluent speakers and the extra assistance would be welcomed by local teachers.
Most schools welcome volunteers who want to get involved in other aspects of school life, or run extra-curricular activities and after-school clubs such as: Sports, community development.
Schools in rural communities in Ghana are mostly only equiped with blackboards and chalk, but the most important requirment is ‘yourself’. the students woul want to know more about you, reasons why you chose to visit Ghana, and mostly they’d want to know you personally, so a litle opening up is expected as most of these kids are inquisitve.
Generally the teaching program is fun and exciting as you also get to experience a different level of educational system and how kids manage to progress with little or no means.
