Volunteer Opportunities


Mwangaza VolunteersMwangaza has been strengthened by its long-time partnership with teachers from the United States who volunteer their time at the Mwangaza Centre in Tanzania. Since 1996, many U.S. teachers have been enriched by this summertime volunteer experience.

Mwangaza's volunteer needs change with some frequency, depending upon the needs expressed by teachers in Tanzania.

We are always interested in hearing from potential secondary-teacher volunteers who might find a "fit" with our professional development seminars for ELCT secondary teachers held at Mwangaza Centre in Arusha, Tanzania.

Currently, the requisites for teacher volunteers are these:

  • training (or willing to be trained) in Sheltered Instruction Observation Protocol (SIOP)
  • spending time on-line (e.g. email, Skype) and face-to-face one long weekend to review (or learn) SIOP
  • dusting off (or purchasing) Making Content Comprehensible for Secondary English Learners: The SIOP Model [With CDROM]
  • funding yourself (approximately $3,000) for 2 week (minimum) trip to Tanzania in June/July


Mwangaza VolunteersHousing for volunteers is available directly at the Mwangaza Centre's Arusha campus.

At this time, all secondary-teacher volunteer positions are filled; yet, we invite you to complete this questionnaire (below) for us to keep on file.
