Volunteering in overseas education programs can be incredibly rewarding and can transform the lives of the local children and the wider community. Popular programs include running summer camps and day care centres, teaching English to children and adults, community development, sexual awareness workshops and assisting in orphanages.
Volunteer as a teacher abroad and you could work alongside local staff as a teaching assistant and provide practical advice to students with their spoken and written English. Introduce fun, alternative ways to construct classes and even take on a class yourself once you have built up the confidence and relationships with your pupils. Why not take advantage of a second language and ask your students to teach you the local tongue in exchange for their new language skills? If you prefer to teach adults, there are a range of programs that focus on adult education. Many parents in under-developed countries fall pregnant very early in life due to the lack of knowledge on safe sex. They also subject themselves to sexually transmitted diseases, often unaware of their symptoms or their ability to spread. You can volunteer as a teacher for these adults and help share your knowledge about these and a myriad of other subjects.
Overseas education programs can take you around the world with an abundance of vacancies in countries such as Thailand, Cambodia, Chile, Fiji, Peru and they are always on the lookout for new volunteers. So, why not volunteer as a teacher on your gap year?
