Education is free in Morocco and is available to children and young people up to 15 years. However, it is farther behind the formation of other Arab states, enrollment and literacy rates are among the lowest in the world. Many children do not go to school because they have to help their parents in the household or work to support their families financially. In addition, many Moroccan schools have material shortages, overcrowded classrooms and poorly trained teachers, as is often the case in developing countries.
Volunteers support schools and after-school centers. They bring valuable language skills and new perspectives with them.
What do volunteers do?
Volunteers usually work three to five hours a day in a public school or NGO, and teach children ranging from children to teenagers. Volunteers are supported by local teachers, but they have to rely on them to teach from the very beginning. The children usually have beginner to advanced level, and volunteers work with them on all facets of language training, including grammar, pronunciation, and writing. Depending on their needs, volunteers can also take lessons on other subjects.
1. Before departure, volunteers must submit a police background check. Without this volunteers will not be included in the project.
2. Volunteers must indicate the language of their choice in the application.
