Under 18 Teaching and Cultural Experience

Pays d’action: Inde, Asie
Type d’activité: Enseignement
Join a dedicated two week trip for 16-17 year olds. You will lead fun and interactive lessons in schools, helping to improve the maths, English and creative skills of the students. Volunteers also run activity sessions at a disabled school and community outreach projects. Volunteers will experience Indian culture and visit the world famous sights of Agra Fort and the Taj Mahal.

Description du projet et du rôle des volontaires

Volunteer role at the project:

Volunteers joining the Under-18 Trip support and encourage underprivileged children in local schools and community outreach projects to learn through educational activities.

During the trip volunteers run interactive lessons which may include:

  • Creative educational lessons
  • Games and music
  • Organising group sports
  • Arts and crafts sessions
  • English and maths projects
  • Fun competitions and quizzes

Working with a team of volunteers, your role will be to create and run activity sessions in local schools for 2 hours each weekday morning.

In the afternoons volunteers play games and support art activities at community outreach projects and a disabled school for children aged between 7 – 17 years old.

This is a brilliant opportunity to volunteer to help improve the children’s English skills and run activity sessions for children whilst becoming fully immersed in the local community and learning about Indian culture which few tourists ever experience.

Throughout the two weeks volunteers are able to learn about Indian culture through Hindi lessons, cooking classes, henna workshop, cultural classes and Bollywoood cinema trip. During the evenings and weekends volunteers will visit the famous Taj Mahal, palaces, forts, temples plus a dance and music show.

How the project is making a difference:

The project in India provides continuous assistance to day care centres and schools which have limited funding and resources. The community outreach project was established by the team in 2015 to support a neighbouring community who rely on collecting rubbish to sell in order to generate income for their families. The project aims to encourage the community to start engaging with the education system and increase the communities' skills.

Why volunteers are needed:

Volunteers provide assistance to support the underfunded and understaffed schools, in an effort to improve the support and education levels of children in the city of Udaipur.

The Under 18 Teaching and Cultural Experience gives the children an opportunity to get involved in arts and crafts activities which are otherwise not available.

L’organisation de volontariat se présente

We are an award winning non-profit organisation arranging ethical, inspiring and supported volunteering opportunities around the world since 2001. Volunteers are needed from 2 - 12 weeks for animal, conservation, child care, education, teaching, building and community volunteering projects in Asia, Africa and Central & South America.

In this time of uncertainty during the current Coronavirus outbreak, we are monitoring the global situation closely in conjunction with the UK FCO and our local teams on the ground. The health and safety of our volunteers is our primary concern and we will only restart placements when it’s safe to do so. It’s not yet clear when this will be but we aren’t accepting new bookings for placements before 1 August 2020.

We want to reassure volunteers that you can feel confident booking an overseas volunteering placement with us and we have introduced extra flexibility to help with this.

Flexible payment terms
We are giving added flexibility on payments. Normally we ask for final payment by 8 weeks before start date, but we are reducing this to 1 month before start date for placements with start dates in 2020. This takes some pressure off volunteers and allows us to see how the situation evolves over the coming months.

Flexible date changes
If any of our volunteers want or need to reschedule (regardless of whether it is related to Coronavirus or not!), we are happy to reschedule for up to 18 months. You just need to let us know 1 month or more before your placement date and it can be open ended if you aren’t sure when you want to reschedule to. We are keeping this free of charge for maximum flexibility!

Booking flights – wait for now
We normally recommend that volunteers book flights as soon as possible after their placement is confirmed to secure the best deals, but with the current uncertainty, it’s best to wait until travel restrictions are lifted and the airlines can confirm their schedules before booking flights and making other arrangements.

We’d love to help organise your next volunteer adventure, ready for when the world has returned to some kind of normality!
