We offer a volunteer opportunity for young people and adults to work with us teaching children of all ages and abilities to help them gain entry into state run schools.  The education we provide to children is free of charge and is financed by our Charity and the fees charged for those who volunteer.

Your work will be to help the centre staff delivering an educational programme and helping with the everyday running of the centre.  You may be teaching a classroom of children or one on one work to meet specific needs of individual children. 

The opportunity can be from 2 weeks to 3 months, however, we would suggest a minimum of one month as this will enable you to fully immerse yourself in the culture in Accra, Ghana and be effective as a teacher to the students through consistency and the development of relationships.

You do not need qualifications to teach or come from a background of teaching, we will provide you with the support you need to enable you to develop a good manner of teaching.  What is essential is that you are good with people, are able to motivate yourself and are fit and healthy to work in an African climate.

For more information you can email us and express your interest to enable us to send you further information and check availability of accomodation.  You can also visit our website www.future-stars.org.uk
