Although the Moroccan government is working hard to improve literacy and promote professional development, a large percentage of Moroccan children and teenagers aren’t given the chance to acquire valuable second language skills. It’s well known that speaking a second language will enable students to further their education and integrate them well into the job market, but accessing opportunities to learn these languages is not easy.
Volunteers work with underprivileged children and adults, providing training in English and information technology. You’ll help to run small workshops, assist local teachers and organize educational games and activities for students of all ages. You can lead lessons, or pair up with another volunteer to deliver classes. You can also assist in summer camps during holiday periods.
Volunteers are also able to teach French, which is a popular second language in Morocco. If you can speak French and English, and are willing to volunteer teaching both languages, please include that in your application.
The nature of project work is essentially the same as our Teaching English project in Morocco - Marrakech. This project is better suited to volunteers wanting to be based nearer to the coast, where there are fewer tourists.
As volunteers work with the support of IVHQ’s local team and placement staff, you don’t need to be a qualified teacher to participate. However, we encourage volunteers to come prepared by completing some relevant training, like a teaching English as a foreign language (TEFL) course.
