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.
