A Primary Education Teacher Peace Corps Volunteer’s main project will focus on working with one or more co-teachers at their school in partnership with the Department of Education. The goals of the project are to 1) improve teaching; 2) increase student achievement; and 3) improve school community participation. In order to achieve these goals, Volunteers will assist their co-teacher(s) with improving English proficiency and classroom management, implementing classroom-based learning assessments, improving pupils’ academic and social confidence, motivation and critical thinking in literacy in English; as well as enhancing library resources and increasing community linkages to school through activities such as coaching, training, workshops and after-school events.
Volunteers are also encouraged to implement secondary projects focusing on health, the environment and sustainable use of resources, child development, remedial education, and science or language arts.
