Volunteers are placed in urban and rural communities in and around the project locations where they would teach English as well as other subjects to the local children. As a volunteer, you will be teaching English and other subjects such as Mathematics, Geography and General Knowledge to the children. The knowledge, skills, and ideas that volunteers from other cultures can bring to a Ghanaian student is invaluable for the students.
Teaching Project volunteers in Ghana mainly to teach local children in village schools. Although English is the official language of Ghana, the children rarely get to learn from non-Ghanaian speakers of the language.
Volunteers do NOT have to be native speakers of English but willing to volunteer in a village to help children who are ready to learn. Volunteers will receive assistance from the coordinators and the local school regarding the lesson plans and teaching curriculum. You could well find yourself teaching groups of children in an ‘open-air classroom’ where there are no chalkboards and the children have no books or pencils. The need for improvisation & creativity in teaching methods is paramount and can challenge the most experienced teacher, but the rewards are amazing.
Volunteers work for around 5 hours in a day for 5 days in a week. Volunteers can bring along teaching materials such as picture books, instruments, flash cards, art supplies, and songs. Classes are generally in session five days a week.
Accommodation will be provided to volunteers at their place of their placement. They will be staying with Ghanaian host family in the communities, most of them have experience with volunteers and will give you all the necessary advice and support they need to feel comfortable at home.

We are particularly looking for books for young children from Kindergarten, primary to Junior high school level. Story books with pictures are excellent, pens and pencils as are science and other non-fiction books with colorful illustrations. We are also in need of books with basic science experiments and arts and crafts.
