Were you unable to study abroad during your undergraduate career? Are you looking for an exciting opportunity to have a meaningful impact on the lives of students? Then WorldTeach is the place for you. With yearlong programs in American Samoa, Chile, China, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Guyana, Marshall Islands, Micronesia (Pohnpei, Kosrae and Chuuk), Namibia, Tanzania, and Thailand, and semester programs in Namibia and Ecuador, WorldTeach is currently looking for motivated individuals to serve as volunteer teachers in our yearlong and semester programs. Funded and partially funded programs are available for both yearlong and semester programs.
WorldTeach is a non-profit organization originally founded by Harvard University in 1986. Our volunteer teachers work in the diverse countries (listed above) in a myriad of placements. Placement locations range from villages of the Tanzanian savanna, to the urban hubs of Colombia, to the dense rainforests of Guyana, and to remote islands in the middle of the Pacific ocean, among others. Volunteers teach many subjects including English as Foreign Language, math, science, and information computer technology.
Volunteers are full time teachers, and in some programs, also have the opportunity to earn a TEFL certificate during their term of service. While volunteers share their skills and knowledge with their students and communities, they also gain cultural understanding, foreign language skills, develop leadership experience, and learn how to be more adaptable and resourceful. With 15 programs in 13 different countries, there are plenty of options to find a program that fits your skills and interests. WorldTeach offers excellent professional development and benefits and has more than 25 years of experience successfully preparing, training, placing, and supporting volunteers around the world.
