This role is ideal for teachers who have just received a qualification and want to develop their skills, or for those wanting a break where you can make a real difference to the life chances of refugee children and adults.

Are you a teacher who wants to make a real difference to the life of refugees? Do you have 2 weeks or more free to support grassroots education projects to develop? Volunteer as a teacher for refugee children or adults in Greece!

This role is ideal for teachers who have just received a qualification and want to develop their skills, or for those wanting a break where you can make a real difference to the life chances of refugee children and adults.

 

Today in Greece:

  • 60,000 people are stuck in camps or unstable accommodation.
  • ​57% of children are not in formal schooling.
  • Adults are in need of language skills. This may help them build a new life.
  • Most of this need is being met by small organisations. As the refugee crisis fades from the headlines, they are all struggling to recruit teachers.

 

Dedicated volunteers are doing what they can to help but they lack resources and educational expertise.

  • ​At this company, they pair experienced teachers with local organisations who need training and mentoring.
  • The company prepare and support their teachers throughout their trips.
  • They’ll work to ensure that everyone can access a good education.

 

As a mentor you could:

  • Work with an organisation to develop their programme, refining practices and procedures, developing curriculum and educational approaches.
  • Train and mentor teachers within the organisation.
  • Take on classes if you are there for a month or more.
  • Run a tailored TEFL training programme at the end of your stay for multiple projects in the area.

 

Requirements:

  • Ability to work in a challenging yet rewarding environment
  • TEFL certificate
