Make a difference as role models by teaching preschool, primary and secondary students. You can also initiate extra-curricular activities.
Teaching is an immense privilege, inspiring young minds and seeing them grow can be one of the most exciting things a person can ever do. If you are already teaching, or if you are considering a career in education ASTCF has a great range of volunteering projects where you can develop your experience and use your skills to help children in Uganda
If you have a passion to get people of any age excited about learning, and you would like to use your time developing this skill and encouraging others then please take a look at our projects and see exactly whose lives you could be impacting - as well as your own!Volunteers in this field work alongside local teachers or on their own; at preschool, they teach basic English skills, and carry out basic childcare duties; at primary and secondary, they teach core subjects, such as English, mathematics, science, and can initiate extra-curricular activities after school such as art, music, theater, sports or gardening; they may also carryout small and manageable community groups or individual tutoring outside class for adults. Participants should not count on teaching resources being available and many classes may have large numbers but it is a challenge that is highly rewarding.
As part of your experience, in the majority of our projects, we give you the chance to take part in a range of different adventure activities.Uganda is a large and extremely diverse country in terms of both culture and nature. For three days you can undertake a safari that ushers you in the vast Bwindi Impenetrable National for Gorilla Trekking or the Murchison Falls National Park for Uganda Wildlife Tour or the famous Queen Elizabeth National Park for Uganda Bird Watching, or the Kibale National Park for Uganda Chimpanzee Trekking. You can also take a journey for Cultural Tour from Central to Eastern Uganda, to tour Kampala the Capital City of Uganda, Buganda and Busoga Kingdom, or to Western Uganda, to tour Bunyoro, Toro and Ankole royal monarchy, tradition and culture. The adventures will provide you with a break from your project, a chance to see your host country from a different perspective, and time to maybe live out a few dreams!
When you arrive in your new country you will be met either by a member of ASTCF staff, or by a member of staff from your project. Either way we will make sure there is someone to give you a warm welcome and guide you through the transport systems to your accommodation.
Volunteers Guest House – In this accommodation settings, volunteers live together but in self-contained private rooms. These can be the most fun places to stay, and also the most diverse when you mix together several different cultures.
