Golden Aya's STEM Teacher Assistant volunteer program is one of Golden Aya's many Volunteer opportunities that gives volunteers a unique chance to make a difference. Volunteers will be welcomed to the program with a volunteer guide and an orientation. Volunteers will help Teachers prepare, educate, evaluate, and tutor the students in the subjects of Science, Technology, Engineering, Math, and English ((STEM)+E). This program is designed to improve students' literacy, critical thinking skills, and overall knowledge.

As we all know, developing countries are not always able to keep up with the adequate tools and resources that meet the needs of the advancing world. Many NGOs and government-assisted programs have attempted to rectify and/or solve many of the problems that are causing the lack of development in these countries.
The communities that Golden Aya will be targeting are those that are apart of Africa and its diaspora. Programs and institutions that foster development in these communities tend to work independently, despite the fact that many of them have very similar goals. This can cause overwhelming pressure on a given entity, being that it can be easily felt that the sole responsibility of communal development is put on them alone. There is a major need to connect certain African communities and the institutions that promote their development. Developing communities and those that face economic declines, that are a part of Africa and its diaspora, are not usually granted the opportunities to help themselves. Often times, many outside volunteer organizations attempt to influence cultural change in the hosting community; this tends to lower the morale of the community and negatively affect their willingness to cooperate.
