YearBeyond Academic Programme 2023 Application for South Africans

YeBo Academic Programme is designed as a catch-up intervention to assist learners (achieving code 2 to 4) in closing their foundational literacy and numeracy gaps. The goals of the programme include improving academic outcomes, progression rates and non-academic outcomes, and reducing dropout rates.

What will you do as a YeBoneer?

As a YeBoneer you will be trained to work with struggling Grade 3 and 4 learners in low- and no-fee schools.  You will support the teacher during the day, as well as provide one on one paired reading support to the learners on the programme. After formal school hours, YeBoneers run a catch-up After School Programme that incorporates literacy, numeracy and homework support using Teaching at the Right Level principles.

The programme runs from Monday to Thursday (YeBoneers are typically on site from 8h00 to 16h00). On a Friday they do not go to schools but rather meet their mentor for reflection and training. Each YeBoneer works with a total of 20 learners, 10 learners per volunteer twice a week (1:10 YeBoneer to learner ratio).
