Volunteer Teaching

Here at V2 we strongly believe every child deserves the best possible start in life, and that a good education is the key to success. Unfortunately, for a variety of reasons, many children in the Caribbean are not getting the good quality education they deserve.  This is where our volunteers help: using your experience and skills to help at primary schools in Jamaica or Tobago.  Qualified teachers or those in training will find teaching in the Caribbean a rewarding and career enhancing opportunity. Plan your lessons and share your teaching methods and skills with other local teachers. For those with little or no experience you will assist the local teacher or even teach your specialised subject area all while gaining insight into the Caribbean education system.

Our partner schools also need volunteers to lead and participate with students in life-skills and non-academic activities. Volunteers can set up cooking, sewing and sport clubs. It’s all about providing creative spaces for children to learn new skills and explore new hobbies.

 

The best part for me was the experience in the schools. I was only able to visit once this time but I loved the pleasant spirit the children and staff had and the exceptional minds of the young children. They were truly a job to be around and I cannot wait to go back to see them again!
