Having English is a chance to escape a life of poverty.  Having a strong education can open up many career opportunities.  Your individualized support and English language lessons will provide opportunities for future employment and help to reinforce attendance.

Village schools, those that do not have an English teacher, welcome volunteers in their schools.   Our volunteers will work side by side the local teacher in a local primary or secondary school.   A syllabus will be provided, and your input is welcome as well. 

Volunteers’ lessons will focus on grammar, proper pronunciation and basic spelling. You will also plan and organize afterschool activities like soccer, basketball and other organized sports. Spanish speaking volunteers are preferred.  Language Immersion lesson can be arranged in the afternoon.

WHAT DO MY FEES PAY FOR?

When you join an A Broader View program your financial contribution supports the hundreds of needy communities where our volunteer programs are based.  Donations are helping to stimulate the local economies with coordinator and hosting jobs, with new constructions at local school and orphanage, with much needed medical supplies to under served hospitals and clinics. 

ABV works tirelessly year round to support our volunteers, and also to serve the local communities where we are based.  As a tax exempt 501(c)(3) non-profit charity organization we receive 100% of our funding from our volunteers' program fee donations. Your program fee is used for airport pick up & transfer, departure transfer, placement logistics, orientation, food & accommodations, in-country assistance as well as programmatic administrative support and continuity of our volunteer programs.   If you have questions about our program fees email to volunteers@abroaderview.org or call us toll free at 866-423-3258.
