Under the supervision of the Camp director and English teacher volunteers assist in directing all activities including but not limited to English classes, games, sports, projects etc. Volunteers become mentors and friends for kids, cultural and language ambassadors.
English teachers are responsible for developing camp program and schedule. GoCamp 2019 programs will be developed according to four strands:
- School as a centre of the community (about active citizenship)
- Animal planet
- Innovations and entrepreneural culture
- Art and creativity
- Leadership and Debates
School children aged 8 to 15. Camp groups and English language ability will be mixed, and these may vary from school to school. Our volunteers will not be the teachers at the camps. Camp staff comprises of English and other subject teachers from the participating schools.
The time and commitment required varies depending on the role and the needs of the local Camp. Generally, we require volunteers to be available for around 5-8 hours during the day, 5 days a week (Mon to Fri), and weekends are free. During the weekends, you may travel and site-see. GoCamp managers will be happy to provide advice and assistance. It is also possible to stay at the camp if you do not wish to visit nearby cities. Volunteers are welcome to explore Ukraine before or after the program at their own cost.
