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+
Solteros y solteras
Parejas
Grupos
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 unspoiled landscapes, vibrant communities, and beautiful sandy beaches that have not been incorporated into the mass tourism industry.
