Teacher Training Volunteer

Volunteering as a teacher training volunteer is a unique and rewarding experience that can have a significant impact on the lives of students and educators in underprivileged communities around the world. As a teacher training volunteer, you will have the opportunity to work with local teachers and educators, providing them with the skills and knowledge they need to improve the quality of education for their students.

The work of a teacher training volunteer can take many forms, depending on the specific needs of the community in which you are working. Some common tasks may involve working with educators to design curriculum, create lesson plans, and develop teaching materials. Additionally, you may be asked to help with the delivery of training sessions, such as facilitating workshops or leading small group discussions.

The teacher training volunteer program is a unique opportunity for individuals who are passionate about education and want to make a difference in the lives of children. This program provides volunteers with the chance to work alongside experienced teachers in developing countries, learning about different teaching methods and cultural perspectives on education.

Teacher training volunteer programs may include:

1. Developed and implemented lesson plans for students of varying abilities and learning styles.
2. Assisted in the design and delivery of teacher training workshops for new educators.
3. Provided one-on-one support and mentoring to new teachers, helping them to develop their teaching skills and strategies.
4. Collaborated with other volunteers and educators to create engaging and interactive classroom activities and resources.
5. Assisted in the assessment and evaluation of student progress, providing feedback and support to teachers and students as needed.
6. Participated in professional development opportunities to stay up-to-date on the latest teaching strategies and educational trends.
7. Built strong relationships with students, families, and community members, promoting a positive and inclusive learning environment.
8. Contributed to the development of school policies and procedures, helping to ensure the safety and well-being of all students and staff.
9. Acted as a positive role model for students, promoting a love of learning and a commitment to academic excellence.
10. Demonstrated a strong work ethic and dedication to improving educational outcomes for students in underserved communities.

Orientation begins on the morning of next day your arrival and covers everything you need to know for your volunteer program in Nepal – an introduction to Nepal, Nepalese customs, language training details, rules and expectations, safety, travel opportunities in Nepal, and an introduction to your project and placement. The orientation will also give you a chance to visit local temples, sample authentic Nepali food, meet other volunteers and swap contact details for weekend travel and socializing. The program may vary depending on your time of arrival. We will manage to include all below mentioned activities in you introduction program.
• Arrival and introduction host family
• Survival Nepali lessons and cultural discussion
• Local amenities and sightseeing and project start

On arrival in Nepal, volunteers stay in a host family in Kathmandu for their orientation.

Volunteers are then accommodated together in homestays and hosted by local families who have been approved by our program staff. We give your host family a fee for your support, food and board. It is exciting to stay with a host family, providing you with a unique opportunity to learn about the Nepalese way of life, meet local people, try traditional food and speak the local language – especially when host families in Nepal tend to have limited English.

Living is basic but comfortable and most homestays have electricity and running water, with the exception of some rural homestays which are without these conveniences during the dry season. Squat toilets are the norm in Nepal and you will not come across many western toilets. Volunteers can also expect low-pressure showers that are generally not heated; however, this is refreshing after a day in the heat.

You can expect to share a room with one to three other volunteers and bedrooms have single beds and bunk beds with bedding provided. It is recommended volunteers bring their own sleeping bags and mosquito nets for any trips away.

WiFi is available in most of the volunteer homestays. If you would like to keep connected during your stay, we recommend bringing an unlocked mobile phone and purchasing a local SIM card when you arrive in Nepal.

The staple meal for most Nepali families is dal bhat, which consists of lentil soup (dal), rice (bhat) and vegetables in curry (tarkari) and/or meat (masu) with a side of pickle/sauce (achar). Volunteers are served two meals per day at their homestay and can purchase additional food to supplement this if they wish.

Volunteers can have a meaningful impact on Nepalese communities by providing assistance with a wide range of activities that help make life, and the future, better for local people. Volunteer World Nepal has a number of volunteer projects in Nepal. Some are located on the outskirts of the capital city of Kathmandu in rural and urban areas, while others are in Pokhara and Salleri. Pokhara is located in mid-western Nepal and is a popular tourist destination, renowned for its amazing mountain views. Salleri is the Everest Mountain region: beautiful landscapes, hillsides dotted with villages, a lively weekend bazaar, a Tibetan camp, and many spectacular Buddhist monasteries. In Salleri you can teach in Schools, teach English in a monastery, work in a Health Clinic or work in Construction. Salleri is a small Himalayan Region town that serves as the headquarters of the Solukhumbu District.
