Social & Care Work with Street Kids
You'll work at a Youth Centre, helping out with anything from basic schooling such as reading or writing, to community projects and life skills lessons. The whole purpose of this is to get them ready to be taken back into the mainstream schooling and domestic home life again.
The programmes are all presented in a fun, experimental manner with an outcome based learning environment. The major focus is on arithmetic, reading and writing. There are also hand craft and art programmes which are part of the weekly schedule, as well as sport coaching in soccer and cricket.
What you'll gain from doing this project:
- An exciting, never-to-be-forgotten adventure into African culture.
- You'll learn a lot from experts in your field about how they work in a cultural environment that's different to what you're used to.
- New skills, more confidence, a greater understanding of a different culture, invaluable personal and professional development.
- An entry on your CV or résumé that will put you head and shoulders above most others in the job market
- And best of all ... an unforgettable experience!
