JOIN US FOR A LIFE-CHANGING EXPERIENCE | STEM VOLUNTEER PROGRAM IN TANZANIA
Are you passionate about STEM education and want to make a difference in the lives of young people in rural Tanzania?
We are currently seeking volunteers to join our team as educators and help us empower students with the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in the 21st century!
About the Project
For the past two years, we have been working on a STEM empowerment project in Tanzania, Africa. This project aims to empower local teachers and their students with vital future skills, including critical thinking, problem-solving, creativity, and more, all through the lens of science and technology.
To date, 50 local community teachers in 6 villages in the area of Saadani National Park were fully trained by our team to support the STEM curriculum we co-created with our local partners, SANA Tanzania, and to implement it to more than 10000 students in their schools.
Our highly qualified and experienced team members will conduct extensive training sessions on STEM with you before you travel to Africa, in order for you to be prepared for any educational needs on the field. Together, we aim to support your development as a volunteer and reinforce your knowledge, passion and potential.
The first days you will assist the SciCo team in the “train-the-trainer” session with educators of the area who will participate in the program and run it with their students. The next days you will take over the significant role of “supporters”, being present and assisting in the classrooms, during the implementation of the program, ensuring that everything is running smoothly.
As a volunteer with our organization, you will have the opportunity to:
• Teach STEM subjects to students in primary schools
• Assist in the co-creation of curricula with local teachers
• Conduct teacher training and workshops
• Participate in community outreach programs to promote STEM education
• Work with local organizations to promote STEM education and career opportunities
• Gain valuable experience working in a cross-cultural environment
• Make a positive impact in the lives of Tanzanian students and communities

Accommodation and food conditions
In a beautiful location, in the heart of Miseni forest, you will experience a fully sustainable and eco-friendly camp. You will stay at the Miseni Retreat. Our accommodation will be in tents and rooms for 2 or 4 people, with shared toilets and showers, which will be enough for everyone. The Miseni Retreat has been designed to be eco-friendly and green with almost zero impact to the surrounding environment!
There may not be the luxuries you are used to at home, but the whole setting is unique! The view and landscapes are enchanting and the people are extremely hospitable.
You can have breakfast, lunch and dinner at Miseni Retreat. The food is basically vegetarian, traditional African, not spicy. The water is filtered/bottled.
What you need to join us:
• Fluency in English Language
• Enthusiasm to learn
• Passion about our mission
While experience in teaching or volunteering in a developing country and studies in STEM-related fields are desirable, they are not required. We provide training and support to all volunteers to ensure they are prepared for their role.
Join us and have a significant impact on the development of Tanzania by improving the quality of education, inspiring students to pursue STEM careers, and promoting community development!
