Teaching and training
Education
The mission of Ann Foundation is to give the right platform and learning opportunities to children, youth, physically disabled, and the underprivileged to attain their highest potential in their lives. Offering online English classes is part of our literacy project for children and the youth. We hope to empower them by educating them and developing their personalities. Online Volunteers will teach English and instill confidence in these children to pursue their goals.
Volunteers: 10 needed
1-5 hours per week / 52 weeks
Fluency in Tamil and English is required as the children are beginners. Some experience in teaching would be well looked upon but not necessary. Bear in mind that the children consider online volunteers as their teacher, friend and a mentor, therefore only committed online volunteers should apply.

Keep this in mind:

Most organizations find the volunteers they need within just a few days and close the opportunities to more applications. So if you see a project that interests you, apply right away and make sure that you show the organization that you have the right skills and motivation for the task!

Online volunteering is rewarding and empowering, but it’s also a serious commitment. When you are chosen for an assignment, the organization is counting on you to complete it.

Our online volunteer community is made up of bright, dynamic, committed individuals who enjoy bringing out the best in each other and in the organizations they serve. We expect all volunteers to maintain high standards of behaviour, and to refrain from any activity that could be detrimental to the assignment, the organization, other volunteers, or to UNV. By registering you accept that you do not make any financial claims to organizations or to UNV. See the Terms of Use for more about standards of conduct and the conditions for using this platform.
