Child Education volunteer Projects

As an education volunteer with a focus on children you will support local staff in providing a safe, learning and fun environment for youngsters in classrooms, day care centers and after school clubs.  You will help with a range of activities such as arts and crafts, songs, games, story time and also formal learning such as reading and writing.  You may be asked to help children who need a little more help and group work, which is very important as this rarely happens in classes with such high student numbers.  If you are a qualified and experienced teacher you may be asked to provide training and support to local staff.

Education has been identified as a global priority by the UNDP and early years attendance is key in giving children a great start in life, as well as enabling parents to go out and earn a living while their children are in a supervised setting.  Many centres and schools lack classroom assistants who can help with preparation, running group sessions or helping children who need extra learning support.  As a volunteer you may help local staff with the running of activities and share your ideas with teachers to enrich lessons which often take a more formal approach or use rote learning.  You will gain an insight into the daily challenges and realities facing teachers, children and communities in enabling children to attend school full time.

Projects where you can focus on child education include Classroom and Child Care Assistant Placements In Cambodia, Education Outreach for Child Workers in the Markets and Mobile Literacy Development in Ghana.  For those of you studying our Early Childhood Development Internship in Africa may appeal.

As an education volunteer focused on children you must have a love of working with children, a genuine interest in learning and a high energy level.  If you are creative and happy to inspire children with songs, stories and games to consolidate classroom learning these placements could be perfect for you!  All of our teaching placements require volunteers to complete a police record check.  If you are a TEFL, early, primary or senior school teacher why not take a busman’s holiday and share your training and experience with local teachers while learning how they manage with poor attendance, large class numbers and a lack of classroom resources.  

Bring your love of reading, learning and sharing your ideas and join us at Kaya to inspire young learners or develop teacher capacity on a child focused education placement.
