As part of its Global Teachers Institute in South Africa, Teach With Africa is seeks middle schools and high schools to partner with us in a collaborative exchange with student teachers and qualified young in-service teachers from partner schools in South Africa.
American host schools commit to sponsoring an educator from South Africa to participate in an educational exchange in their school for 3.5 weeks during the month of March.
Through an exchange of teaching and learning, American and South African peers can share best teaching practices, form and/or continue mentoring relationships, celebrate their values and connect culturally, and collaborate on strategies to bring about equality in education in both countries.
Ten to twelve student teachers and qualified teachers from LEAP Schools and South African Extraordinary Schools Coalition, along with 8-10 Bay Area middle or high schools who are committed to equality in education, mutual learning, and sharing of effective pedagogical practices.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the annual March exchange took place virtually this year in 2022. We hope to have an in-person exchange in 2023.
