Description

The Peace Corps Volunteer program is often called life-defining by the more than 235,000 Americans who have served. Get the chance to fully integrate into a host country community, where you will live and work on projects ranging from education to business development. Peace Corps Response sends experienced professionals to undertake short-term, high-impact service assignments in communities around the world. Bring valuable skills and experiences to projects in places where they are needed most.

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.
