This language program is offered to the Nepali community year-round and volunteers typically spend two to three months in these placements. The maximum class size is eight to ten students, and volunteers teach classes from 6 am to 10 am, and from 4 pm to 6 pm, Sunday to Friday.
Dynamic nature, positive attitude, and qualified volunteers with previous teaching experience are preferred. However, fresh and new learning attitudes of volunteers also provide great opportunities for our children.
First, the introduction program is held among the learners and instructors prior to teaching at the Learning Center to foster a family atmosphere. Next, the volunteers will receive one week of Nepali language and cultural training to help them adjust to life in a Nepali community. To further ease volunteers into Nepali life and their placement they will stay with a local Nepali family located within a half-hour from the center. There will be a PVN-Nepal coordinator to help them with any queries or requirements during their stay.
