This wonderful initiative allows local children and youth, who make up the majority of the pupils, to receive tuition completely free of charge.  

Volunteers on this program work together with local teachers to provide Palestinian children and youth with educational programs important for growth and development. The main areas of education are languages, arts, technology, and sports. Class sizes are kept small to create an atmosphere that is positive and encouraging, and are held in a wide range of locations — community centers, libraries, private schools, refugee camps, etc. Volunteers may be teaching in any combination of these locations, or across the street from the volunteer accommodation in the two-story English Center, which houses several classrooms, a computer lab, and a lecture hall. With English (or French)  language skills, these children will have a greater chance of employment and will also greatly aid youth into higher education. 

Goals of this Project:

  • Provide free English  or French language classes to the disadvantaged people of Palestine
  • Improve the future prospects of the people of Palestine
  • Expose non-English/French speakers to native English/French 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 SATURDAY. Volunteers can choose to participate for periods ranging from 4 weeks to 12 weeks. Longer stays can be arranged directly with the local team, but will be subject to availability and individual visa conditions.

Spaces on this project are limited and therefore subject to availability. Early booking is recommended.

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!
