Volunteer for Teaching
About the program
Despite the increase of societal and human initiatives, a considerable number of children still do not have access to basic education nor to a clean environment. Education is for Travel4change, one of the most important ingredients to a happy, successful, and constructive life for them. Our teaching program aims to provide a holistic yet basic education to the underprivileged children of our communities. Through a mix of theoretical and practical knowledge; with a more comprehensive concept of learning, our goal is to provide every child with the essentials of education. By doing so, we cater to their present needs, equip them for future school enrolment, and allow them to gain self-confidence and a great motivation. Ranging from the age group of 3 to 16, the children go to their remedial classes provided by our centres located in the middle of the community where our volunteers operate. The taught disciplines are English, Hindi, Maths and Science from which the volunteers can choose depending on their skill sets. Moreover, our program focuses on the personal development of the children, as the emotional, social and physical aspects of young children have a direct effect on their overall development and on the adult they will become. That is why our volunteers can use their skills to foster the children’s internal capacities by holistic and creative ways of teaching, through interactive and intuitive games, or even physical activities to expose them to various disciplines.
By joining our teaching program, you will be part of a dedicated team of one of the best volunteer abroad programs for college students, whose educational development initiatives are meant to provide the children with basic and holistic education, bridging the gap between them and future school enrolments and therefore giving them a dream they will be able to fulfil thanks to you.
