Teaching at Community Schools in Ghana

This program places you at a community school to serve as a teacher or teacher’s assistant. The schools we work with are privately run, surviving on donors and volunteers to operate the schools. The students range from 5-12 and are mostly street children, many orphans. The school provides free education (according to Ghana’s national curriculum) as well as medical care and social support. This is a wonderful opportunity for you to do work with children that really matters!
