Develop your passion for teaching whilst vacationing in Jamaica. Assist with lesson planning and delivery and provide one-on-one support to students. This volunteer program is especially suitable for:
Age 18+
Singles
Couples
Groups
50+

Whether you're a qualified teacher, a trainee or just passionate about education, our teaching assistant program is an excellent opportunity for to develop your passion for teaching and gain international work experience.  You will gain an in-depth understanding of the Jamaican curriculum and the teaching methods that are popular here, and be able to share your own methods and ideas with the teachers.   You will assist with lesson planning and delivery and provide one-on-one support to students, whilst building rewarding relationships with the students and the local teachers.  

Working with children is always a rewarding experience.  With V2, you will be providing much needed assistance and support to children who are often overlooked, as despite the dedicated teachers' best efforts, schools in some areas can be very underfunded.  In addition to this, you will explore a side to Jamaica that many other tourists do not get to see and enjoy the unspoilt landscapes, vibrant communities, and beautiful sandy beaches that have not incorporated into the mass tourism industry.  

Free-time activities

V2 organises trips that highlight the best of Jamaican culture. Volunteers can trek through the island's stunning Blue Mountain (some say you can see Cuba on a clear day!), climb the beautiful Dunn's River waterfalls, and explore the city of Kingston, amongst many other options. We are always on the look out for new trips and excursions and we are open to suggestions from volunteers. We can also help volunteers organise solo trips, if they wish.
