Attention all aspiring educators out there seeking a unique cultural experience in Yangon, Myanmar!
Teach for ASEAN (T4A) is looking for passionate and committed volunteers who want to make an impact in education and skills development. This is a perfect opportunity for you to hone your teaching skills, gain great teaching experience, as well as to engage in a unique cultural exchange while empowering disadvantaged children and youth.
With our partner children's homes’ and your support, we envision T4A as a sustainable programme that addresses the educational gap in the local school systems, enabling Myanmar youth to be workforce-ready and to pay it forward by sharing their knowledge and abilities with others!
Programme subsidies may be available for those who sign up by 5 April.
T4A Pilot in Yangon 2017 aims to allow a group of Myanmar youths to:

Gain Opportunities to practise conversational English
Eventually be empowered to share their skills with other Myanmar Youth
In this Pilot, there will be 2 different programmes targeting different profile of youths:

Based on a speech-and-drama approach, we engage children who are residents at a Children's Home to practise conversational English.
2) Workplace Skills Programme (May - July 2017)
We set up this programme to train a group of Myanmar youth to become workplace-ready, thus empowering others in their community.
