Serve in two distinct South African townships from June 15 - August 10, with the option to gain an accredited TEFL certification.
The central objective of this program is to support educational initiatives in communities in the Southern Peninsula of Cape Town. As a WorldTeach participant in South Africa, you will witness firsthand the diversity of South Africa and the aftermath of the apartheid movement. On arrival, you will go through a WorldTeach orientation that includes an introduction to life and culture in South Africa, visits to the schools and communities where we work, and information on health & safety issues. The remaining time will be split between two distinct sessions, first in a black township and then working in a 'coloured' township. During these sessions you will be involved in winter courses for various grades that include English literacy programs, computer training, math, and special projects.
