Though teaching will be your top priority, you will also have the opportunity to develop other personal interests. Community volunteering opportunities often include direct service work that allows you to interact with the community, beyond the walls of your classroom placement.
Your city organizer will work to connect you to a volunteer opportunity outside of the classroom helping to integrate you into the community and develop even more transferable skills. Volunteer opportunities generally available tend to involved working with specific communities such as youth, adults, individuals with special needs, the Ethiopian community, animals, and more.
We highly encourage you to seek out your own volunteering opportunity according to your personal interest and passion (as long as it serves the community at large) and are there to assist with making the necessary connections.
