TEACH ART, DANCE, DRAMA OR MUSIC TO CHILDREN OVERSEAS
Teaching Projects to children in Drama, Music and the Arts that you can do as part of your work experience, gap year or career break, or just as a volunteering holiday.

Teach Art, Music, Dance and/or Drama in schools in poorer communities. The Arts are an excellent means of communicating and can also be downright fun for the kids! You don't need any qualifications, just lots of enthusiasm.

Use Arts to address social issues and enable children to express their frustrations and confusions - and perhaps help them to understand and learn to cope with unwelcome situations. Art, Dance, Music or Drama help teach children life skills, communication and socialising skills. And it's fun!

I've just had the most incredible day. The warmth I was given by the children and staff was quite something. Don't think the kids had seen anything like me before. They either pointed and smiled or just came up and hugged me. A number of them asked me if I was a pop star! Adrian Tate, teaching in South Africa
