Volunteer opportunities

Teaching at Burao Academy

We believe that teaching is one of the few fields where an individual can inspire future generations, and we need teachers who can inspire future generations to dream, in a region where hope can be hard to come by. Burao Academy is an English medium school that provides a rigorous Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) curriculum along with practical training and application in theories of thought and logic. We are looking for outstanding educators who are passionate about making a positive impact on Somali youth and helping them achieve their dreams.


We are small team that's dedicated to ensuring every dollar we receive has a direct impact on the school. To minimize overhead, we need volunteers to host fundraising events or donation drives for student sponsorship and school supplies.

Grant Writers

Burao Academy is always looking for professional grant writers and reviewers.


We have great opportunities for both experienced and aspiring writers to help us capture the educational journey of Burao Academy students, and communicate it through the Burao Academy newsletter.
