Many young people in Jordan grow up disadvantaged, but there are a range of support services that aim to help them through the different stages of their lives. As a teaching volunteer, the students you’ll help teach in Jordan have often been part of youth homes and come from challenging backgrounds. The next phase of the support they receive is a bridging education that enables them to look forward to the futures they can have.
You’ll work in learning centres with teenagers and young adults who want to further their education and integrate well into the job market. You can expect to tutor students one-on-one with a focus on teaching English, unless you can speak Arabic well enough to be able to teach other subjects. You’ll assist local staff to run intensive language classes and educational activities, provide tutoring for exams, help to develop resumes and applications for further study opportunities.
The Teaching project in Jordan provides an important educational platform for underprivileged young adults who need additional support to obtain their high school certificate or to work towards higher education and acceptance to university. Your assistance as a volunteer teacher in Jordan can make an incredible difference to the students involved in the project, as you help to open up further educational opportunities that can change the course of their lives.
As you’ll be volunteering with the support of IVHQ’s local team, you don’t need to be a qualified teacher to participate in this project. However, we encourage you to come prepared by completing some relevant training, like a teaching English as a foreign language (TEFL) course.
