Learn, plan, and execute local curriculum and teaching methods.

Gain experience and understanding of the Jamaican curriculum and the teaching methods at the primary level. Assist with lesson planning, delivery and provide one-on-one support to students

This project calls on creative volunteers with strong initiative and an enthusiasm for teaching. The academic portion of the project follows a government-issued curriculum and volunteers work alongside a local teacher providing extra support and attention to the children. For the non-academic portion of the project, volunteers are encouraged to teach arts and crafts.

Working with children is always a rewarding experience. In addition to this, our teaching assistant program is an excellent opportunity for qualified teachers, trainee teachers or just those who are interested in education to develop their passion for teaching and gain international work experience.

V2 aims to provide assistance and support to children who are often overlooked. At times, teachers may find their hands full and are unable to attend to each and every child at the same time. Our volunteers stand to fill that gap to bring every child to their fullest
