Project of Volunteer : Teaching English
My overall volunteer experience in South Africa gets two thumbs up! It was one of the most amazing experiences of my life!
Feedback: The dinners were not the best, I would suggest partnering with a different restaurant to provide dinner for the volunteers, also dinner time was to early.
Regarding placement, I would recommend that volunteers placed at any location not be moved around from class to class, they should stay with the class that they were originally paired with. Our goal is to bond with students and that’s limited if we are moved to different classes at any given day or time.
Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to volunteer, this was my first time in South Africa, but, definitely not my last!
Do you recommend IFRE volunteers to other volunteers?
