Education & Sports Teacher

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.
