Honored Guests

Beginning with a small cohort of teachers that volunteered in South Africa in 2008, Teach with Africa has been committed to helping severely under-resourced communities escape the cycle of poverty through education.

Teach with Africa has partnered with a remarkable network of schools in South Africa: LEAP Science and Maths Schools, whose emphasis on social/emotional and academic excellence has created opportunities for a generation of future leaders. Many of these Future Leaders spend a month in Bay Area independent, charter, and public schools in the Educator Exchange Program.

Through the LEAP Schools, the co-created Global Teachers Institute, and the reciprocal exchange of educators, Teach with Africa has reached over 4,000 teachers and 150,000 students.

Starting in 2019, a U.S. and South African team will travel to Zambia to provide professional development to a community-based school that serves rural children, expanding Teach with Africa’s reach into another country and to younger children.
