The Opportunity

To address the staggering shortage of 70,000 teachers, we recruit motivated high school graduates, train them and deploy them to work as volunteer teaching assistants during their pre-university break. Each teaching assistant commits to a minimum of 15 hours per week, for a minimum period of 6 months (two school terms). Our volunteers work in grading, mentoring, tutoring, substitute teaching (when teachers are absent) and managing extracurricular activities. In exchange, they receive mentoring, job-readiness training and entrepreneurship training.
