Teaching in Africa

Teaching in Africa can be one of the most rewarding volunteering experiences. Home to some of the countries with the lowest literacy rates in the world, the African continent is somewhere you can apply your skills and enthusiasm to make a real difference to children’s future prospects. Frontier’s teaching placements in Africa span the entire continent and can be undertaken as voluntary work over your summer break, on a gap year or even just as work holiday leave – from as little as two weeks to over a month or more.

What kind of teaching work can I do in Africa?

Frontier offers many types of teaching projects in Africa that potential volunteers can choose from. You could teach English in Tanzania on the beautiful paradise of Mafia Island with its sandy white beaches, friendly villagers, and world class scuba diving sites, or lead a classroom in Madagascar with its dramatic forest landscape and fascinating biodiversity. There is something for everyone and crucially, teaching in Africa will give you the opportunity to give back to a disadvantaged community and empower its children to forge brighter futures for themselves.

Why teach in Africa with Frontier?

Teaching in Africa is also a great way to immerse yourself in other cultures and experience some of the most beautiful natural landscapes in the world. On many of our projects you’ll be based in a homestay with a local family, who will welcome you warmly and introduce you to their traditions and way of life. As well as all of the fond memories which you will take away with you, you can gain official recognition of your hard work by achieving a TEFL certificate which will look great on your CV or university application. So make a difference, gain new experiences and choose to teach in Africa with Frontier.
