“Targeting Educational Achievement in Caribbean High Schools”
TEACH Caribbean is a non-profit organization started by a group of Jamaican Rhodes Scholars in 2006 with the aim of improving quality and access to educational resources for high school students via innovative methods and curricula.
TEACH Caribbean’s inaugural program and short-term focus is the “Jamaica Math Science and English Project (JaMSE)” which provides summer remedial teaching to students living in rural Jamaica in areas of Math, Science and English. University students from abroad are recruited to teach alongside Jamaican instructors to give high school students exposure to other cultures. Full funding for JaMSE was provided by Rhodes Trustees in Oxford UK for 2006 & 2007.
In the longer-term, TEACH Caribbean will roll out other programs as well as expand to other Caribbean countries.
