This is a great opportunity for interns with an educational background to learn the basic fundamentals of teaching a class while simultaneously gaining some invaluable experience in their desired professions. As an intern you can explore the numerous affecting the education of Tanzania's youth as well as the current lack of teachers in the country's rural villages. Even though English is a regularly-used language, proper English education is but a dream for many children. Public schools (as well as private schools in some of the rural areas) are constantly in search of qualified English-teachers - especially native English-speakers.

With Tanzania continuing to lure more and more English-speaking tourists every year, the need for English-speaking hospitality workers increases day-by-day. For students with a strong ability to speak English, there are an increasing numbers of employment opportunities. In this project, interns will teach English to nurseries, throughout Tanzania - teaching children ranging primary and secondary schools in ages from 6 - 16 years old. Primarily working under the guidance of the schools' directors, interns teach in rural schools.

- Skills/Qualifications

There are no specific qualifications needed to join the English-teaching project in Tanzania. However, interns are expected to be fluent in English. Teaching experience will be helpful (but not required).

- Interns responsibilities

Interns will primarily work as English instructors either in private or public schools as well as schools run by regional orphanages. Interns will teach English for 2-3 hours each day (six days a week) in addition to organizing extracurricular activities, games, art classes/lessons, sing, dance, etc. Interns may also be asked to assist with various administrative duties as well as assist the schools' English-teachers (note: each school has at least one English-teacher).

One of the most distinguished features of our internships in Tanzania is the guidance of supervisors. We will assign a qualified supervisor to provide assistance for all interns throughout the duration of their chosen internship. Individuals filling the role of supervisor are usually either the director or chosen staff member of the project which interns choose. During your time as an international intern, you will be assigned a number of duties which volunteers also perform (in this sense, there are very few differences between our volunteers and interns).

In the internship, you will select a particular area of interest related to teaching English and explore the issue further with the help of an assigned supervisor. Please note: the project supervisor does not develop internships as this is up to the intern to get as much or as little out of their projects. All participants should be proactive to ensure the ultimate success of their internships. Supervisors will provide at least five (5) hours each week to make certain that interns are adequately guided.

- Room/Food

We arrange meals, living accommodations and supervision from the beginning to end of the internship. During the first week (if enrolled in the language and culture program), interns stay in our hostel in Dar es Salaam which also doubles as our local offices/base of operations. Located in Dar es Salaam, interns are provided access to various parts of the city. A husband and wife team (our local coordinator who also conducts the culture and language course) runs the hostel - where interns receive three (3) meals a day.

During the internship period, interns stay with a host family. However, an intern joining the orphanage project will stay at the orphanage's compound. We arrange a separate room for interns with shared bathroom facilities in host families as well as in the residential orphanage settings. Details pertaining to living accommodations will be provided in placement details prior to arrival in-country. Our main offices are located in Dar es Salaam allowing interns access to the local coordinator.

Our internships in Tanzania begin on the first and third Monday of each month. We are proud to offer the same services offered by our competitors but at a highly economical price (nearly 50-175% less!). Furthermore, we do not make six-figure salaries. What we do is work very hard and effectively to keep costs down for individuals seeking an international internship. We remain constantly devoted to maintaining both the quality of our programs and ensuring the safety of our international interns.
