Teacher in a Learning Center

Pokhara, Nepal

Alliance Nepal is offering a once in a lifetime volunteer and internship experience in Nepal .

About the Program

Volunteers will help to improve the student’s pronunciation, assist in managing their homework, organize games and other activities in the learning center, and help to improve the children's listening and speaking skills. Hours can vary depending on the institution where the volunteer is placed and the hours that the volunteer wishes to work.

As a volunteer in center will give you the opportunity to teach and help students who are eager to learn and improve their abilities in English and other subjects. The students will also benefit from cultural exchange and different teaching techniques. Your main role will be to help for study, however you may have the opportunity to assist in other school activities such as sports and extra curricular projects. 

At the center there will  be around 10  to 20  kids   to  study and  get support  on  their  study through volunteers. All  the  families are very  poor and could not  arrange  the extra  tuition class  for the children.They  come  to  the center  early in  the morning and in thee evening. We provide the materials  for   the kids who comes to study  and it   is  helping  a lot  for  the  students  on their study.

All   the parents  are illiterate and  could not   support on  their kids study  at  the  home. volunteers can  bring  some story  books with  them and any  school  materials.

On  our  experiences volunteers  are  involving  with the kids  and there were  enjoying with  the kids. Mostly these placements are in the  village around Pokhara.These centers  are   at  the host families  where are the  volunteers   are staying.

Depending upon the need, volunteers may be asked to assist in other  extra curricular activities like sports. Your teaching focus will be:

  • Speaking, listening, writing
  • Simple vocabulary, simple sentences like greetings, colors, the Alphabet, numbers, time directions
  • Very basic grammar • English (4-5 hours a day) in class
  • Organizing games, drawing, singing, dancing, and other creative education and extra curricular activities
  • Helping kids to do homework, monitor academic progress.

Typical day

When volunteers initially arrive they will spend their first 2-3 days doing orientation, taking the city tour and generally getting accustomed to volunteer life in Alliance Nepal before they start volunteer work on depending on your duration. 

First Day: On the first day of the volunteering placement, the volunteers will be escorted to the project by local staff and introduced to the staff at the project you will be working with. The volunteer joins with the local staff. You will be given a duty roster and a plan for your work. There is usually a tea break and a lunch break. 

Work and hours is dependent on the project and location that the volunteer is participating in. Mostly volunteers teaching at the center 2 hours in the morning 7.00am to 9.00am and in the evening  5.00pm  to 7.00pm.

Details on Arrival

Volunteer can  arrive throughout  the  year. This  learning  center runs  throughout  the  year  and it  opens on  the  holidays. It is going to provide the extra  class  for  the  students  in  the  evening and the morning. So Volunteers can always join  the  program!

Free-time activities

Volunteers on Alliance Nepal programs often form lifelong friendships with their host families and the people they assist on the volunteer programs. However they also form strong bonds with the other volunteers they meet, work and live with on their place.
