WHAT IS GLOBAL VIRTUAL SCHOOL?

Welcome to Global Virtual School! GVS, a program organized by the Worldwide Education Fund, aims to provide educational opportunities to underprivileged students living in Tajikistan, Pakistan, and Afghanistan who have limited access to education due to gender, poverty, and other issues. Through GVS, you will have the opportunity to teach weekly lessons as a virtual English teacher to a classroom of eager and ambitious students. In addition to being a teacher, you can also be a grader or participate in Conversation Club, a program where you can engage in discussions with students to aid them in their conversational speaking. We are super excited to be volunteering with you guys this year!

Hi everyone! I am Samuel Jacob, one of the GVS Committee Heads for the 2022-2023 school year! I am on the Computer Science track, so I am very interested in programming and problem-solving. Outside of GVS, I am also the TAS Tutoring Coordinator, Driving Tomorrow Director of Outreach, and CSO Code-Ed Committee Head. Some of my interests are playing the cello and watching Marvel movies. Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions!
