Full time (30+ hrs/wk)
Short-Term (few weeks/months)
Local Children's Centers in South Korea provide shelter for children after regular school hours as well as educational and cultural opportunities. Most of the children in rural areas have fewer opportunities for meeting foreigners and getting high quality English education compared to kids in urban areas. And although international marriages are quite common in rural areas, local residents still lack the understanding of multiculturalism. So the children are facing discrimination in school, cultural and language difficulties. This project will play an important role in bringing a taste of international culture to the local children. The volunteers can give these children a chance to interact with foreigners and understand other cultures. And English can be the tool for understanding Korean children and interacting with them. The local children's center welcomes you to organize your own class with your talents and ideas.
The volunteers' duties include:
- Teaching English classes to primary and middle school students
- Taking care of children while they are in the center
- Help with farming activities
Teaching English to primary school students and middle school students will be your main task. Their level of English is mostly basic except some of the middle school students. So they lack confidence and interest in English. However, they started getting interested after the first contact with international volunteers a few years ago.
If you have any special skills, talents and ideas, you can also lead activity classes with children (music, drawing, etc.). You will work from Monday to Friday with 10-30 kids (8 to 16 years old) and 1-3 teachers. Sometimes, you may be asked to join weekend activities and field trips with the kids on Saturday such as going to the cinema or to the mountains.
