Help the community of Hoandedhdhoo by developing the minds of young children. Prepare them for their next stage of education with innovative lesson plans and activities! This volunteer program is especially suitable for:
Age 18+
Singles
Couples
Groups

Teachers are welcome in our community to spread knowledge and become a beacon of light for our children.

Our school administration, teachers and parents work together as a team to educate our young children. We are always in need of qualified teachers. We want to make sure that our young generation (3-4 years) receives the quality education they deserve.

 

As a volunteer you will closely work with the administration of the school and other staff members. The main goal of the program is to prepare our young generation for preschool. They need guidance from an expert teacher who can educate these young children that are from 3 to 6 years old and help them develop their personalities.

 

All teaching material will be provided by our staff and the administration will cooperate in every manner. Through interactive lessons, you can educate these children with different topics related to the real world. This will be a mind building activity and it will help them grow faster and stronger. Also you will assist teachers in the classroom and help them to create lesson plans. This placement is ideal for those who either plan to become teachers in later life and want to experience teaching first, or who simply want to make an impact on the lives of children.
