Volunteers teach foreign languages to Moroccan children who come from very modest backgrounds. These children cannot afford to attend private language centres and the presence of volunteers gives them every chance to gain the vital skills necessary for a prosperous life.
Classes in Morocco often have a diverse range of ages and abilities present which can make teaching a little more challenging. However, with a little creativity and flexibility on behalf of the volunteers, and assistance from the local teachers this can be easily overcome. Initially volunteers can work alongside a local teacher and as they settle in they will be given the freedom to create and carry out their own lessons.
Volunteering on this project will allow participants to gain a deep understanding of Morocco's educational system, and while experience in teaching and education will certainly be advantageous, it is not a prerequisite for this program. A volunteer's willingness to share and ability to be proactive in their role will make them a valuable addition to any classroom.
