School and Educare Volunteer Cape Town

Project Overview

Volunteers are placed in schools in disadvantaged communities. We currently support or run the following schools and educare centres:

Wolverivier Educare: This is a very small class of 4 – 8 children that are Afrikaans speaking. The educare is located on a settlement. The classes focus on early child hood development and school readiness programs such as counting, colors and writing.

ACVV Educare: Based at a social services office, the children from the surrounding settlements are brought to the center for school readiness and early childhood development programs. There are 30 – 60 children in the school from age 3 – 6.

Vissershok School: An Afrikaans farm school where children from the local settlement get taught grades 1 – 7. The children are from ages 6 – 15. Classes are between 40 – 60 children. Volunteers assist with teaching computers and supporting individual children.

No experience is necessary and volunteers can have the joy of watching a child learn and helping them through the process. You will be assigned to a class and will help the teacher in their daily tasks, be it teaching, marking and sports training. After school hours volunteers will be involved in after care or after school programs in the settlements.
