We are partnering with New Dawn Academy to teach reading, writing, and science while mentoring high school students and coaching them as they mentor elementary students. New Dawn is located in Haruma village where many people live at subsistence levels, without work and basic necessities. The high school students we work with are likely the first in their families to pass the government matriculation exam.
We are working to create an educational community where older students influence younger students to remain in school. We will begin arts-based community engagement through the SAAFE (Secure Access to Arts For Everyone) House which provides arts materials for the local community. This may involve hosting a community arts-making event.
If you are a teacher or are a current student in an education-related field (Early Childhood, Elementary, Secondary content areas, Counseling, TESOL), then this trip may be for you. You will receive training before and during the trip, as well as feedback from regular classroom observations by experienced teachers.
EDU Teaching Trips may be able fulfill practicum/internship requirements so check with your university if this is something you would like to do.
We are currently planning and recruiting for this location. However, due to COVID, this trip is not yet confirmed. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have further questions.
