Innovative stories of Teach Ambassadors initiating extra curricular activities with their learners, within their schools or greater communities
Building a Community.
TEACH South Africa is building a force of leaders who have the perspective and commitment necessary to effect long-term, fundamental changes that will make South Africa a stronger, more successful nation. After their two years in the classroom, our TEACH Ambassadors will go on to work in a variety of fields. Many will continue to teach, while others will enter the private or public sectors.
The TEACH South Africa experience will have a significant impact on their lives, both personally and professionally. Through this intense personal challenge, they will develop an advanced set of leadership, communication, and problem-solving skills. At the same time, they gain an understanding of educational inequity and its solutions that is foundational for a lifetime of advocacy and civic leadership.
In addition to technical training, related specifically to enhancing their teaching skills, each TEACH Ambassador is expected to identify a need in their school community and develop a project plan to address this need. The ongoing support team helps the TEACH Ambassadors as they implement their plans to bring lasting change to the schools where they work

How It Works
Alumni build a network of colleagues, friends, learners, and learners families, who become an ongoing source of personal and professional support. TEACH South Africa will also facilitate networking to take place between alumni. For those who do not want to remain in teaching, TEACH Ambassadors will be facilitated in their search for employment by TEACH South Africa partners. There are possibilities for some TEACH Ambassadors to receive employment at TEACH South Africa, if suitable vacancies arise.
