Do you have a passion for teaching and working with children?

This fantastic program was developed to improve the education of children in Senegal.  A solid education can lay the path out of poverty for many, with volunteers greatly assisting on this road. English language skills can aid youth into higher education and gives them additional career opportunities. Typically, volunteers on this teaching and assisting in schools placement in Senegal will work with children of between 4 and 17 years of age, attending one of the poorly resourced schools in Yoff or Pikine. Volunteers are not required to hold a formal teaching qualification or TEFL certificate. Whilst experience in Teaching and Education will certainly be advantageous, it is not a prerequisite for these programs, as a volunteers level of involvement within the classroom can be tailored to suit their own skills and interests. A willingness to share and an ability to be proactive in their role as a volunteer teacher will make a valuable addition to any classroom.

Goals of this Project:

  • Provide English skills to children in Senegal
  • Improve the future prospects of the children of Senegal
  • Expose non-English speakers to native English speakers in order to improve pronunciation and conversational skills
  • Enable inter-cultural exchange which benefits both students and international volunteers alike.
 

 

Start Dates

This project is available year-round and programs start every SUNDAY. Volunteers can choose to participate for periods ranging from 2 weeks to 12 weeks. Longer stays can be arranged directly with the local team, but will be subject to availability and individual visa conditions.

Requirements

Love Volunteers welcomes all those 18 years and over who wish to help create a brighter future for children through the power of education. This project best suits those with experience and/or qualifications in the field of childhood development and education, though volunteers who simply wish to explore an interest in this field are also welcomed as there are many ways you can assist in the classroom. Whist not mandatory, completing a TEFL course prior to joining this project would prove to be highly beneficial. Ideally, volunteers on this project will have at least a basic knowledge of the local language in order to communicate effectively with staff and students, though this is not a pre-requisite. Importantly, all applicants must first and foremost have a genuine willingness to help, show drive and initiative, and bring a positive 'can-do' attitude. If this sounds like you, we want you on the team!
