South Africa is an unbelievably diverse country and the school placements under the teaching volunteer program in Cape Town provides a significant reflection of the same. Volunteers are placed in primary and secondary schools, in suburbs and township areas of Cape Town. Most of the children studying in these schools come from poor and disadvantaged backgrounds. The classes in the schools are overcrowded and understaffed as well. The need for additional skilled teachers and resources in the placements is immense. Volunteers work alongside the teachers and also occasionally  teach a class on their own with no supervision. You DO NOT need to be a qualified teacher to join this program. Volunteers can get involved in teaching English, Maths, Geography as well as sports programs in the school.
