YAAPHA

Computer Skills Teacher

MOSHI, Tanzania

NGO | YAAPHA

YAAPHA is looking for volunteers with advanced or basic computer skills who are willing to teach young girls who have been living in vulnerable situations.

Youth In Action Against Poverty and HIV/AIDS (YAAPHA) Open Door Training Centre offers vocational training to young girls who have been living in vulnerable situations.

YAAPHA Open Door Training Centre is looking for volunteers with advanced or basic computer skills who are willing to share their knowledge teaching groups of young girls computer technology. This increases their ability to obtain a higher level of employment, thus better paying jobs.

This organization has dedicated some of their financial and teaching efforts in providing a computer training skills course to these vulnerable young girls. Right now they have one computer teacher who is providing computer lessons to a group of 45 young girls who are at the centre, (these numbers fluctuate each semester).

The main work that a volunteer computer skills teacher does at this placement is to assist in computer lessons based on the topics that the centre has developed and in accordance with the level of each class taught.

Volunteer computer skills teachers are needed to teach basic to advanced computer skills to the students. This may involve lessons from simple keyboarding to challenging computer programs. Basic skills include computer knowledge such as: sending and receiving emails, using the internet, word processing software, spread sheet software and social media. A volunteer computer skills teacher would be expected to contribute according to his/her level of computer skills.

Volunteer Tasks Required.

Introduction to Computer

A computer skills teacher volunteer helps to teach all computer application programs such as Ms word, Ms excel, Ms publisher, Ms power point, Ms access, internet and emails. The volunteer works together with the local teacher in providing these lessons.
