African Calabash Volunteer is affiliated with many schools in Ghana to enable our volunteers to help raise the reading, writing and speaking abilities of children in our communities. Volunteers are placed in schools to assist local teachers in teaching English language to pupils. You can volunteer as an English teacher in Ghana during your gap year, career break or during an extended vacation. You can gain this work experience without any previous teaching experience, and we do not require you to have a TEFL qualification. Our volunteer English teaching projects in Ghana not only benefit the people in the schools where we work but also the wider communities. You can work with primary or secondary school children so let us know your preference. You can teach English to children of any age, and are also likely to be asked to helplocal teachers brush up on their own language skills. Our volunteers teach conversational English in schools to a range of ages and abilities. While you'll have the basics of a blackboard and chalk, classrooms often lack other resources. Your most important resource is yourself, so try to draw on all your experiences and interests to really bring the lessons alive. Bringing items from home such as photos, stamps and magazines can be great for building lessons around, and our Teaching booklet will also give you plenty of ideas. This volunteer project involves teaching primary school children using dedicated one-on-one sessions to help bring them up to required standards. The aim is to give certain students extra attention as they have fallen behind the rest of their peers. Some of the children struggle to understand their teachers because their home language is not English.
After working with each child, not only may you see a measurable improvement in their abilities, the children should also be more confident and comfortable once they return to their classrooms.
Our education volunteer project is based in Accra and Ejura in the Ashanti Region of Ghana.
