English Teaching Volunteers in Africa, Ghana

Overall rating: 0 based on 0 reviews

Program Description

The carrying out of Free Compulsory Universal Basic Education (FCUBE), as between 1996-2005 in Ghana has allowed many poorer families to send their children to school. Education is a priority for the Ghanaian government. Nevertheless, severe classroom overcrowding, lack of educational materials and an overall weak infrastructure are common problems that the Ghanaian educational system faces.

Volunteers can work with children of all ages, from the age of 2 rights up to the age of 16. You will work as a teaching assistant, however if you feel confident enough to take the lead then you can take your own classes. If you have a preference of age group then please outline this in your online application form. OGVO volunteers are placed at a local school. Our team will introduce you to the school curriculum and teaching techniques, so you can effectively plan for lessons.

Volunteers play an important part in supporting local teachers and providing a new lease of life in the classroom through creative thinking and innovative teaching techniques. You’ll find the children extremely excited to see you and eager to learn. To be greeted everyday by the children running over and hugging you makes every day at the school a special day.
