In February 2014 I will be going to Africa for 2 weeks to help in areas of academic and skill development through mentoring and tutoring activities. Currently there are schools in South Africa that struggle to meet their achievement goals, achieve specific skill sets, and motivate young people. I will be assisting teachers in lessons such as English, mathematics, life skills, and science. .
I'm giving so much of my time and personal resources to make a difference in a country who is less fortunate then myself and yourself. The work that I will be undertaking is completely voluntary, with me personally having to pay for my own expenses. The Program Package for me to volunteer in the South Africa Program for 2 weeks is US $1797, which covers volunteer in-country expense such as accommodation and daily meals. I need to be responsible for arranging my own flights, entry visa, vaccinations, and insurance.
If you have any questions about the organization I am working with, you can phone or email them directly. Email me and I will happily send the correct information over.
Thank you so much for helping me make a difference.
