Volunteer:  Community Service
Introduction
Stacks Image 21
There are limited resources for adult education in Tanzania.  Many people in the rural areas are constrained by a lack of skills and exposure to broader opportunities available.  Volunteers in the community service program will help the school organize and will teach training classes in business, computer or other skills to the residents of the local community.

Volunteers will also provide mentoring to local disadvantaged youth to help them develop job-ready skills or pursue entrepreneurial opportunities.  They will also have the opportunity to participate in an on-going HIV counselling program for the local community.

The volunteers will serve as mentors and coaches to the current staff of the school on curriculum development, activity organization, process management and more advantaged computer skills.

Their help will make a long-lasting improvement to the school’s educational standards that will benefit classes of children.
Requirements
  • Volunteers in this program are required to have working experience in the fields of teaching, business or non-profit operations.
