Join our volunteer teaching programs and teach English to some of the friendliest and welcoming children you will ever meet.
As a volunteer teacher you will have the opportunity to teach in orphanages, primary schools & secondary schools, as well as teaching children with special needs.
Whether on a gap year, presently studying, a mature volunteer or looking for an alternative holiday you can make a real difference as a volunteer teacher. The majority of our volunteers work in primary schools teaching children aged between 6 and 12 years old. For those experienced teachers, it may be possible to arrange placements in secondary schools, teaching adults or even teaching children with disabilities. Unlike schools in the west there are no special classes for children with learning difficulties.
You will encounter challenges when volunteering but the rewards are clear. In all locations previous volunteers have left behind a number of teaching aids to help you with your lesson planning and our team of coordinators are always available to offer advice and support.
By becoming a volunteer teacher you will give these children the opportunity to learn English with a native speaker. A competency in English opens so many more doors later in life. With tourism being the No1 industry in these three countries many of the large hotel and tour operators demand a certain level of written and spoken English. All international companies with operations in these countries expect the same. By learning and discovering English these children have their first step on a real ladder to success.
