The goal of these classes is to make students communicate fearlessly, recognize their strengths, and most importantly develop the confidence to pursue their goals. A commitment of at least 1 academic year and 2 hours per week is a must. All classes are conducted online via Skype. The duration of each class is for an hour. Classes are between 7 pm and 9 pm IST (Indian Standard Time) Volunteers will be given a short orientation prior to engagement. Hours are flexible for the Weekend. Classes will be conducted morning,afternoon and evening over the weekend.
Teaching and training
Language teaching
Offering online English, Personality Development and basic computer literacy classes is part of our literacy project for children and young adults in various countries around the world. The knowledge and skills imparted through these classes, we hope students are empowered to become literate, self-confident, employable and independent citizens.
Volunteers: 10 needed
1-5 hours per week / 52 weeks
Fluency in English and Bengali is a definite requirement as the children/youth are beginners. Some experience in teaching would be well looked upon but not absolutely necessary. Some of the qualities sought in volunteers are the dedication to the task, passion for teaching and interacting with children, flexibility, capacity for effective team work and willingness to adhere to committed schedules and responsibilities.
