Starting in northern Ghana, Teach2Teach International brings high quality education and training opportunities to some of the world’s most under-served communities. The core premise of Teach2Teach International is that education is the most effective way to empower people to escape poverty.

More than 263 million children are out of school globally*, and in many African countries youth unemployment exceeds 50%.** Teach2Teach International (T2T) tackles both of these problems. We train unemployed youths to work as volunteer teachers, teaching underprivileged children in their own communities.

T2T’s flagship programme is the Community Volunteer Teacher Programme (CVTP). Piloting in northern Ghana, in areas in which youth unemployment is high and educational attainment and numeracy and literacy rates are low, we take promising young people who lack prospects for formal employment from struggling communities and train them as Community Volunteer Teachers (CVTs). We ensure that we recruit young women as CVTs, and we encourage parents to send their girls to school.  

CVTs will teach in local schools, transforming their own communities through education. The young people we train are given the skills and experience they need to build a future for themselves and escape unemployment, and underprivileged children are given the high quality education they need to give them a chance of escaping poverty and having a better life.
