Read on to learn more about our Teach the Teachers 2016 project!
On July 29th, Great Shape! Inc. traveled to Whitehouse, Jamaica to complete the organization’s annual Teach the Teachers project. The project runs for a period of two weeks, the first July 29th to August 7th and the second August 6th to August 15th.
Teach the Teachers volunteers are currently working with Jamaican grades K-6th educators and principals to provide a variety of resources, skills, and training to enhance their craft and bring quality learning experiences to students. Instructional enrichment programs related to Language Arts, Reading, Behavioral Management, and Computer Skills are provided by our incredible volunteers.
Great Shape! Inc.’s 2016 Teach the Teachers project allows volunteers the opportunity to serve, travel, and inspire. Teach the Teachers, an award-winning program, is greatly praised by the Jamaican Ministry of Education. Volunteers contribute to providing the essential resources needed to restore the Jamaican school systems. Overall, Teach the Teachers enables individuals from all age groups, backgrounds, and geographic areas to experience cultural immersion and life changing fulfillment.
We are more than proud of the work we’ve accomplished and anxiously await what’s to come! Be sure to track this year’s TtT progress on our social media sites (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram).
