What to Expect:

Experience

An adventure for you and an advantage for your students, this experience will provide both you and your host community with amazing opportunities.

Teaching

Dedicated students from isolated rural villages will journey to you to be taught any subjects which you’d like to teach.

Trekking

Strenuous yet indescribably beautiful, your trek will lead you through amazing Shyadri foothills to a new home and host family.

WHO YOU’LL TEACH

Your students will be determined children from villages. They range in age from about four years old to 16. Villages in the Sahyadri Region. Your students’ first language is Marathi, so you have to understand and little bits speak in Marathi. Most teachers teach younger students (Age 13 and under) but some teach older students. This mostly depends on the school’s needs and is decided by the headmaster at the time of your arrival at the school.

WHAT YOU’LL TEACH

You’re most likely to teach English as a second language to your students, but it’s possible that you teach other subjects as well, like Drama, Art, Sports, Stories or choose your own new subject which you want to teach. You are encouraged to express both your preferences and passions to your headmaster.

WHERE YOU’LL TEACH

Although every one of our partner villages has a school. For this reason, your students may have to walk long distances to school each day. Many students trek for 2 hours to get to and from school.

You should expect your school to be a basic, cement structure with barred windows and open hallways. Most have beautiful views of the mountains, and some have a yard for students to play in.  Schools tend to be furnished with basic amenities in bad condition.  Most have benches for students to sit on, and taller benches for them to write on. Some schools have whiteboards, and some use chalk. Most teachers do not speak English well (hence your value) and are very supportive of Trek to School.
