The Volunteer’s Role

The primary objective is to improve education outcomes for children in the far north of Canada. Volunteers will work in schools, at the request of local communities, in the Northwest Territories.

The volunteer placement may include the opportunity to:

- Support students as an eLearning classroom monitor by actively working with the online host teacher to manage classroom routines, protocols and academic expectations;

- Assist in both local and school library staffing;

- Assist with teaching music, drama, public speaking, and radio and television communication;

- Assist with chaperoning students during field trips;

- Work in a student residence assisting the "house parents" in the day-to-day operation of the residence. This would include preparing meals, helping with social and recreational activities, and being prepared to do a wide variety of tasks.
