Join Support for International Change as an HIV/AIDS educator in Tanzania! As a volunteer, your primary responsibility will be to run an HIV/AIDS awareness campaign in your assigned partner community. During orientation, you will be divided into teams of 3 or 4 volunteers with 2 Tanzanian counterparts. With your team, you will be responsible for teaching HIV/AIDS educational seminars and training peer educators and community leaders within your village. Each team will work with several school and village groups.
SIC actively recruits volunteers from a network of well-known universities in the U.S. and U.K. but students from all universities are welcome to apply. Volunteers will live with home stay families in the villages in which they teach, allowing them to really experience the culture and customs of rural Tanzania. Volunteers will also have the opportunity for vacation travel on their off time. Volunteers in the past have enjoyed activities such as climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro.
