The impact of education is boundless and the influence our Teaching volunteers have on the communities we work in goes well beyond the classroom. Whether teaching English, other subjects or working on extracurricular activities, the students are eager to learn and participate. Volunteers may teach independently, provide support to local teachers or team up with other international volunteers in traditional classrooms, tutoring programs, community centers, special needs facilities and orphanages. AVV Teaching projects offer participants with both valuable life-changing experience and an opportunity to make a difference.

Volunteers in this field work alongside local teachers or on their own; at preschool, they teach basic English skills, and carry out basic childcare duties; at primary and secondary, they teach core subjects, such as English, mathematics, science, and can initiate extra-curricular activities after school such as art, music, theater, sports or gardening; they may also carryout small and manageable community groups or individual tutoring outside class for adults. Participants should not count on teaching resources being available and many classes may have large numbers but it is a challenge that is highly rewarding.

Important Note: Ugandan school holidays are in April, August and December. During this period, volunteers can take a break, travel, engage in tourist activities like safari, or participate in another placement (assist in the renovation of the school including painting, decorating and mending desks), or work on children’s centers, youth and women projects.
