Description

Alldays Wildlife and Communities Research Centre is looking for volunteers to teach English in Alldays, South Africa, to children with little or no knowledge of English. We are looking for volunteers who are excited to truly make a difference in children’s lives and make an active contribution to the community. The research centre is an interactive environment also home to Durham University’s Primate and Predator Project, with volunteers working on a range of projects in ecology, wildlife, and primatology.

Key Activities

  • Teach English and environmental education in a developing, rural town in South Africa.
  • Plan interactive and fun lessons for children ranging 5-16.
  • Ideal for first-time volunteers and/or solo travellers.
  • Assist with additional community projects, such as environmental education.


Requirements

We are searching for volunteers who are fluent in English, ideally have a TEFL certification (or experience) and a police background check, and can commit to a minimum of three months. What is important is that you are passionate about teaching and making a difference. You will be working with children and other community members whilst developing a range of skills, a perfect stepping stone for a future career working with communities, children or in environmental education. Several qualities would be desirable, including prior experience working with children; being reliable, responsible, and motivated to work hard; enjoy working as part of a team and be happy to work unsupervised; happy to work long hours in sometimes very hot conditions; possession of a valid driver’s licence (manual).

Salary and Costs

There are no programme costs but volunteers must cover their own living and travel costs, including: accommodation (ZAR7,500 per month), food, international airfare, visas, and medical/travel insurance. A portion of your rent will be allocated to providing your own educational supplies. International travel to South Africa for volunteering is currently permitted with a visa (issued free on arrival) under COVID-19 regulations; we can provide the necessary documentation for visa applications. Accommodation is shared between 2-6 volunteers with shared bathroom facilities (hot showers) and a kitchen area equipped with a gas stove, fridge/freezer, drinkable tap water, washing machine, and AC.
