It's our aim to address the problems of the community by providing a variety of extra-curricular English lessons and fun activities to children living in Jaffa who don't have access to such programs. The main purpose of our volunteers is to expose children to English as an understanding of the language can create a positive change throughout the course of their lives.
The project takes place in different primary schools throughout Jaffa, an area that unfortunately suffers from poor facilities and infrastructure. As a volunteer you'll work with between one and three children, ages nine to twelve. Like all children, you'll find that they vary in skill level as well as cooperativeness.
You should expect to work about 3 hours each day in the afternoon, Sunday through Thursday. Volunteers meet briefly at the start and end of the day to discuss the material and which techniques are best to use. A typical day consists of an opening group activity to introduce new material and breaking into smaller groups to review the material. Volunteers will fill in short reports on each child to record their overall progress.
