Meeting the Increased Need for Teachers

To fulfill the increased need for teachers within schools and other child and youth protection and development programs, community leaders, camp administrators and NGO staff may have to work together to identify some of the most suitable, educated men, women, skilled artisans and youth leaders and request that they become teachers.

It may also be necessary to change or lower the formal education requirements for teachers and develop specific strategies and incentives to encourage certain groups, for example women, to become teachers. Additional criteria for identifying potential teachers may include those who are well respected in the community, or those who are experienced and well suited to working with children or youth.
