Volunteer Abroad

Volunteer Abroad

Here is a volunteer opportunity to do something adventurous that will change your life forever. Volunteering to be in a classroom abroad captures what international exchange is all about. It’s people from very different cultures coming together, learning from one another, and making positive connections. Helping young students learn English opens doors to new opportunities for them. And helping adult learners enables them to communicate with English-speaking relatives and become more competitive in the global economy.

Teaching abroad is a goal for many people, whether they have a degree in education or not. Volunteering as a teacher or teaching assistant for a short amount of time is an excellent way to do something meaningful without committing to the investment of a TEFL certificate or working abroad full time for a semester or year.

Costa Rica

You will be teaching English to a local group of citizens who want to improve their conversational English.  The class meets in a local classroom, usually 4-6 days a week and normally on Tuesdays through Saturdays.  You would have Sundays and Mondays off.  This group would be asking for 5-8 hours a week from you.

Then, if you’re living with a host family rather than the local hostel, you will tutor the family in Conversational English about 10 hours a week, usually around meal times with the entire family.

Italy

You will be teaching young children in a regular local Italian public school.  Sometimes you will have your own class, and other times you will be assisting another full time teacher in the school. You will also be living with a local host family, and you will set aside time to help them with conversational English when you’re not teaching at the school.

Our volunteer teachers in Italy are placed in the Marche region of Italy. Located about a four hour drive Northeast of Rome on the Adriatic coast, there are small Italian towns that hug the coast line on the east and have stunning hills and mountains on the west. You are a train ride away from Rome, Florence and even Venice can be reach by train on a long weekend. Many of our volunteer teachers have taken the overnight ferry to Split, Croatia for a long weekend.
