Projects in Eastern Caribbean
Peace Corps Volunteers in the Eastern Caribbean serve in the four island nations of Dominica, Grenada & Carriacou, St. Lucia and St. Vincent & the Grenadines. Volunteers all work in primary schools, building capacity and enhancing literacy skills. They work with co-teachers to administer reading assessments, design lesson plans to target needs identified in assessments, deliver lessons in the classroom, work with struggling readers in small groups, help to create or enhance school libraries, and implement other literacy-related efforts such as readers’ theater, book clubs and sessions with parents on helping their children learn to read. Volunteers also engage in secondary activities focused on youth development, such as after school clubs, coaching sports, teaching life skills, summer camps, and more.
