To collaborate with our community and partners to aid public schools' students in Bahrain in reading, writing and speaking the English language fluently outside of the classroom. We aim to attract people with English proficiency to contribute to our community. We focus on self-development for participants in the program, including students, volunteers and parents alike. We would like to foster partnerships with different sectors of the community, including universities, schools, bank, companies, clubs and societies. We aim to open more branches across Bahrain, and reach out to a wider number of students in improving their English skills.
All teaching materials are provided to the volunteers upon their arrival, and the slideshow is projected on a big screen at the front of the room. Volunteers teach 1-4 students at a time.
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak in Bahrain, we have switched to teaching remotely via Discord. Each class is in a separate channel, the volunteer livestreams the PowerPoint, and students use whiteboards. Classes' content, structure and timings remain the same.
The program is held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. Each hour is assigned to a different grade, and volunteers can choose to teach for any number of hours. For more information, view the "Locations" tab.
Grades 1 to 6, we adopt the government school curriculum, where we teach the curriculum one week ahead of the school schedule. This allows students to understand the content, and be confident to engage and participate in the school classroom.
As for grade 7 to university level, we follow a general curriculum that covers reading, writing,
speaking and grammar.
An essential part of our program are the many activities held regularly throughout the year: workshops, movie nights, story reading, and fun trips!
