Teaching & Education

In communities around the World there is a an ongoing need for native English speakers to help provide lessons and instructions in rural and urban schools. Most of the schools we place volunteers are in poor neighborhoods and rural locations and the schools lack native English-speaking teachers. As an education volunteer you will help children learn the correct use of English words and master English grammar. Children are very eager to learn and develop their conversational English.
