Participate in teaching volunteer abroad projects with Volunteering Solutions and make a contribution to the education of growing children. Volunteering Solutions offers a wide range of volunteer teaching opportunities across Asia, Africa, South America, and Europe.
You can choose to Teach English to Buddhist Monks in Thailand, Volunteer at a dedicated Girls’ school in Ghana or Teach English to Spanish speaking students in Peru. Our volunteer teaching programs are available throughout the year, with flexible start dates and program duration. Volunteers can choose to volunteer for a minimum of 1 week up to six months.
In most cases, volunteers help in improving the vocabulary as well as the spoken English skills of the students. You may also get involved in teaching other subjects such as Computers/IT skills, Maths and Geography, General Knowledge etc., as per the requirement. You can assist the teachers during their lessons, think of activity-based learning methods and give proper attention to the children. Often, volunteers also take up the cause of renovating the school premises, making them more friendly and vibrant for the kids. Volunteers can also assist in extracurricular activities such as sports and games.
You don’t have to be a professional teacher, and you would not need a TEFL Certificate to volunteer abroad for our English Teaching Projects. Volunteers just need to have a good command over written and conversational English. Volunteers should be open-minded, flexible and prepared to face challenges. In some projects, volunteers find themselves teaching in an open-air classroom and the need for creativity and improvisation is paramount.
We encourage our volunteers to raise funds in case they choose to bring along some useful materials and supplies which can be utilized for the project like coloring books, charts, study materials, pens & pencils, notebooks etc.
