Education

Peace Corps Samoa’s current program focus is on promoting English literacy in Samoan primary schools. The Primary School English Literacy Project was developed in close partnership with the Ministry of Education, Sports, and Culture (MESC) and was officially launched in fall 2012. Volunteers in the Primary School English Literacy Project play an important role in helping Samoans develop the skills they need to succeed and thrive. Volunteers not only build the English literacy skills of students but help teachers incorporate student-centered teaching methods. They also work to improve information and communication technology resources and to increase the community’s involvement in literacy activities.
