About

In India, Teaching volunteers are placed in schools in Bangalore urban and rural Tamilnadu state. Facilities in these schools are often basic - you may find yourself with little more than a blackboard and a piece of chalk. But with one of the school's English-speaking teachers as your supervisor and the support of our Kenosis Foundation (KF) Projects Abroad India staff, you may be surprised at how quickly you gain confidence and make progress.

As a Teaching volunteer, you will play a vital role in improving the spoken skills and future options open to the children and teachers at the schools where we work. You can teach younger children or teenagers but whatever the age, you will find that the students are eager to learn all about your culture and your life back home, and taking advantage of this enthusiasm is the first lesson you will learn in your quest to improve their spoken English and comprehension.

Volunteers generally find that teaching practices in India have remained the same for years - the children usually learning by rote and copying out sections of text. By singing songs, playing games and generally making the lessons more interesting, you will bring the subject alive and witness the children growing in confidence and ability.

There are also opportunities to teach French, mathematics, science, and physical education in schools in Jaipur if you would like to do something in addition to teaching English. In many cases, you can specialize in teaching other subjects. Please let us know if you are interested in this option when you apply.
