Teaching in Tanzania from US$270

Company : International Volunteer HQ (IVHQ)
Activity: Teaching
Country: Tanzania
Location : Arusha
Duration: 1 week to 1 Year+
Approx Costs: 250 to 2500 $ Dollars (US)

Our teaching volunteers are placed in exciting community schools, public schools or orphanage schools. Many of the schools we work with are constantly understaffed and are always in need of new volunteers.

In this program, volunteers can work by themselves or alongside other teachers and volunteers. Typical subjects taught include – English, Math, Science, Social Studies, Art and Physical Education. School in Tanzania runs for three terms a year (Term One – January to April, Term Two – May to August, Term Three – September to November). However, we place volunteers in both government schools as well as English medium schools. These schools take breaks at different times in the year so there is always a teaching placement available for our volunteers in Tanzania. N.B. Volunteers DO NOT need to be a qualified or experienced teacher. 

There is also an opportunity to work with a special needs school in Arusha for those who are interested. The school has around 25 children, ranging in age from 3 to 25 years old. Their disabilities range from physical disabilities to mental disabilities, such as autism and Down's syndrome. They need a lot of love and attention. If anyone has experience working with special needs children or is interested in volunteering at the school, please note your interest on your IVHQ application form and with your program coordinator once you have registered.
