Volunteer Teaching Program in Cape Town is an opportunity to make a difference in the schools and in the lives of the children. 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.

Volunteers work alongside the local 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.

Volunteers need to note that this project is closed during school holidays. Please refer to the Program Arrival/Start Dates given below. Please note that during exam times (which is usually two weeks before school closes for holidays) your working hours may be less due to learners writing their examinations.
