AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM
The After-School Program is one of the first programs we started running at the facility. We have enrolled over 500 kids in the community for free. This program is focused on English, Math, Science and homework completion. We have tables red, yellow, orange and green where we assign students based on their class levels. We have added a reading comprehension class where students read and demonstrate their understanding of a variety of texts. Teachers and volunteers will also assist the students with their homework. We have worked with over 1000 volunteers both short and long stays to help educate the children in the community to allow them to perform better academically. The student results are amazing to see as their achievement is clearly reflected in their term exams.
Working Hours: Mon-Friday, 2:30-4:30pm
Activities: Organize, plan, assist, teach lessons, take attendance, tutor students and mentor.
NEWS HOUR PROGRAM
The News Hour Program, otherwise called Neighborhood News Hour is a platform for students to watch nightly news with our volunteers. We discuss issues related to politics, economy, war, conflict, terrorism, climate change and things that are happening in the Busua community. We have managed to work with over 100 kids in the community providing them with the necessary support to understand what is happening around them and also the world at large. Volunteers help with difficult words and concepts to help the children understand and communicate what is happening in their own country and how it is different or similar to Ghana. The News Hour program runs every Mon-Fri from 7:00-8:00 PM and is opened to every student in the community from ages 13-19.
Working Hours: Monday-Friday, 7:00pm-8:30pm
Activities: Organize, plan, mentor, explain big words, take attendance, select one student a week to present on a news story.
We are all familiar with the current trends in the world and the impact of photography in the social, economic and political spheres. Teach on the Beach has realized the need to teach kids basic skills away from the classroom. There is a need to have space for kids to be able to learn something new and be creative in the process. We have realized photography is fun and an art that can make a difference in the lives of people. Our focus is to provide photographs that is well organized in frames to families in the rural area as much as possible and in so doing their own kids will be in charge of taking the photographs. However, they will be coordinated by experts and volunteers.
N/B: This is a new project “PhotoMe” that is opened for volunteers and any photography lover around the world that wants to contribute to making an impact in society.
Activities: Create a photo studio, teach, mentor, take attendance, prepare monthly reports, organize exhibition and raise funds
