Volunteers joining the Teaching Program will work in primary schools in and around Palampur and teach kids about the basics of English so that the base of their language is strengthened. The teacher-student ratio is poor in these schools, and thus, your contribution will be immensely valuable.
Volunteers will teach kids between the age of 6 to 14 years. Apart from English, the other subjects that are to be taught include maths, geography, and general knowledge. Activity-based learning and interactive sessions are more beneficial while teaching these little ones.
This teaching volunteering project in India will provide invaluable experience of working in a school without any prior teaching experience or TEFL qualification. In this program, volunteers can work by themselves or alongside other teachers in the schools. Volunteers can also assist the teachers and help them find more creative ways of teaching.

Being a part of the Teaching Program, you'll be working with rural and semi-urban primary schools in Palampur, where the teacher-student ratio is extremely poor. You will get to create a direct impact on the lives of the students, by providing them adequate attention that they require, for proper knowledge accumulation and growth. You can be their role model and help them dream of a better future. Focus mainly on their English & Maths lessons, which are the most important. You can also contribute to the administrative and managerial work in the schools, and help the local staff. Some of the volunteers also took the initiative to paint and renovate the schools, in order to make a more joyful learning environment.
India is well known for the rapid growth that they have been experiencing. The economic growth and substantial changes to the infrastructure have made it possible for many cities to grow as travel destinations. Exploring India is inexpensive but rich in culture with big ticket attractions like the Taj Mahal to the taken-for-granted geography of the mountains, deserts, and beaches.
