Overview

Being a volunteer for the English Teaching Program in Brazil, you'll have to teach the children and adults in Rio de Janeiro. These classes would be short-term intensive English courses for the favela residents who are keen on preparing for the job market, school exams, and to master areas of specific interest. As an English Teacher, you'll have the option to design the curriculum and lesson plans for classes having a minimum of 5 to a maximum of 30 students.

This wonderful project was created with the goal of helping to improve the English speaking abilities of the residents of one of Rio de Janeiro’s largest favela (shanty town) communities: Complexo do Alemão, as well as the favelas of Vidigal and Rocinha, in the southern part of the city. Similar to the underprivileged societies in all other parts of the world, there's an inability among the poorer sections of people to speak English and they often lack in confidence. You will not only help them to develop their communication skills but also guide them in pursuing their dreams.

It'll be an incredible opportunity for high school, college and university students who are interested in gaining first-hand teaching experience in a foreign country while making some meaningful contribution towards societal development.
