Teaching Assistant

NakuruKenya (Africa)

Program description

Local children in Kenya, especially those in rural areas, rarely have the chance to meet and interact with foreigners. Most do not even get the chance to practice English outside of the school setting, despite the language being one of the official languages of Kenya. Even interacting and speaking the language properly with them may benefit their learning and increase their confidence with the language.

You will be placed in a local school in the community. Your specific placement will depend upon the community needs, availability at that time, and whenever possible, your preferences.

Keep in mind that you may be put in charge of portions of the lesson planning for the class where you will assist the teacher. This may be done in an informal way which may also allow you the freedom to get creative! The favourite activities amongst the youngest students include sports, games, gardening, and singing.

The aim is to assist local students and staff with English and other subjects through tasks that allow practice and creativity. You are welcome to provide new ideas that promote an exchange of cultures and conversations between you, fellow participants, staff and students. If you have items or photos from home that you can help you to share unique facts or traditions, that could be a great lesson to offer.

Please note that during long holiday periods when schools are on break, a “ day-camp” style English and Sports program may be put in place for local children and it will be run by participants with the help of our coordinators.
