Volunteer Teachers Needed in Rural Tanzania, Africa

Posted By: Red Sweater Project/Mungere Secondary School <volunteer@redsweaterproject.org>
Date: Friday, 11 April 2014, at 11:55 a.m.

The Volunteer Program at RED SWEATER PROJECT connects like-minded people from around the globe with communities in rural Tanzania. We work TOGETHER to drive positive change and make an impact. YOU have the power to be a change-maker and here is your opportunity.

Math & Physics Teacher

We are accepting applications for Math and Science Teachers to teach Forms I & II Math and Physics courses at Mungere Secondary School between July and December 2014.

Our 80 bright students live in a remote Maasai community where English is rarely spoken and primary school is taught in Swahili. Yet, Tanzanian secondary school curriculum is English-based and the language barrier can be an obstacle to learning. Mungere students complete a 4-month English Immersion Program prior to beginning Form I secondary school courses, where they develop basic English speaking, reading and writing skills. The Math and Science Teachers engage students to expand their math and science vocabulary, actively participating in Forms I & II Math Physics classes and extra-curricular activities designed to broaden understanding of math and science.

Volunteer Period
• July – December 12, 2014 with the option to extend

Adventure
