2021 TEACHING VOLUNTEERING PROJECT UGANDA | BOOK YOUR VOLUNTEER TRIP NOW

The Uganda Teaching volunteering project is an enriching and satisfying experience where the volunteer get the opportunity to teach children who are eager to improve their conversational English skills and other subjects.

The Volunteers serving with the Uganda teaching volunteering project will work primarily as instructors of English in local schools in Uganda. The Volunteers teaching in Uganda may also be asked to assist in other school activities such as sports and other extra-curricular projects or working at local community centers.

You can teach primary or high school classes, including academic subjects and life skills, and organize sport and art activities for the children. Let us know what you’re interested in teaching and we’ll get you into the best placement for you. School terms vary annually but are likely to be: Feb 1 to April 15, May 20 to August 20, Sept 20 to November 30.

Know that traditional education in Uganda is based on memorization and passing exams. While there is a language barrier, by volunteering you can introduce creative writing, drawing, debate, and life skills into the classroom.

Teaching needy and orphaned kids has serious challenges and needs volunteers who are open to local teaching methods but still able to bring creativity and fun into the classroom. You are the outside world to these kids. Schools have a basic curriculum, but you’ll be planning your own lessons daily.
