WorldTeach is a registered 501 (c)(3) non-profit and Charity Navigator 4-star charity. We were founded in 1986 by a group of Harvard students who were motivated by the desire to promote local education initiatives in places where teachers and resources were lacking. Today, we continue to provide opportunities for individuals to serve as volunteer teachers around the world, working to educate under-served students in countries that would otherwise be unable to afford or locate qualified teachers. Each year, we send about 500 volunteers, impassioned by that same desires as our founders, to local schools and host communities in countries around the world that have specifically requested our support. Since our inception, we have placed over 7,000 volunteers, providing them with teacher training, language preparation, and field support, empowering them to affect lasting change in the community where they work.
WorldTeach is currently looking for the motivated individuals who will serve as volunteer teachers in our yearlong, semester, and summer programs this year. Our volunteer teachers work in diverse countries in a myriad of placements. Placement locations range from villages of the Tanzanian savannah, 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. These key skills are integral to becoming a responsible global citizen and applicable to every career path.
We currently offer year programs in American Samoa, Bangladesh, Chile, China, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Guyana, India, Marshall Islands, Micronesia (Pohnpei, Kosrae and Chuuk), Namibia, Tanzania, and Thailand. We also have semester programs in Namibia and Ecuador, and 2-month summer programs in China, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Morocco, Namibia, Nepal, Poland, and South Africa. Funded and partially funded programs are available for yearlong and semester programs. For questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at 857.259.6646 or email@example.com.
