Take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to enrich the lives of enthusiastic, underprivileged children. Education is the most powerful tool to improve the future. Whether you are a qualified teacher or have an interest in volunteering to teach abroad, you can take part in this project teaching English and Special Education to the local children. Choosing your own method of delivering the lessons, your teaching work will take place at the local Kindergarten and Primary Schools.
After completing the Goa Introduction Week, you will be assigned the role of assistant teacher at one of the many Kindergarten schools. Primarily enabling children to improve their grasp of the English language, you may also be called upon to teach drama, music and foreign languages. As part of your duties, you will be expected to assist the teachers and other members of staff in creating teaching plans and performing other day-to-day tasks around the school.
Each of the teaching institutions are over 5 years old. They are all well managed and are supervised by officers from government and private organizations. Sharing common values and aims to create a better future for the children, some of them provide free education.
Your working day at the project site will take place between 9:30 am and 12:00 pm. During this time your duties will primarily focus on teaching English but could also include teaching drama, music and foreign languages. Through a combination of interactive games, activities and traditional teaching methods, you will encourage children in their academic development but also ensure that they grow as a fully rounded individual. On top of this you will be expected to assist teachers and other school staff with general duties around the school, as well as creating teaching plans.
