Pace Kenya Volunteers- How we support learning in Kenya


Published on

We have created PACE, a service program that sends trained volunteers into needy schools as teaching assistants who focus on grading, tutoring and mentoring while targeting students with absence, behavior and coursework challenges. Each volunteer serves for a minimum of 15 hours a week over a period of 6 months. We meet the immediate needs within school and expose young, brilliant Kenyans to potential careers in teaching.Learn more about us.
