Teaching English abroad is a great way of improving your interpersonal skills and adding some attractive, hands-on voluntary experience to your CV. But whether you’re joining with our expert English teaching volunteer team for vocational growth or personal growth, there’s one thing that every voluntary teacher will take from their experience; and that’s a new way of looking at the world. Immersing yourself into a whole new culture and experiencing everyday life from the eyes of underprivileged communities allows us all to open up our minds and find compassion deep within ourselves. So not only do we get to impart important life skills to the children and young adults of this world who need our help the most, but we get to learn an awful lot along the way.
Our English teaching programs are available in India, Nepal, Cambodia, Thailand, Sri Lanka, or Peru so you will have your pick of the world. From the run down slums of Mattanchery in Kerala- India, to the rural areas of Surin in Northern Thailand, every placement will have purpose. And no matter where you choose to take your skills and enthusiasm, someone somewhere will benefit from learning English in your classroom.
But let’s not forget, it’s not all work during your teaching English program either. Because our volunteer teachers are encouraged to travel, see new things, meet new people and inevitably make new friends for life. From the moment we place you, we will have everything organised on your behalf so you can focus on the volunteer task at hand and spending your spare time exploring a new place. Suitable living arrangements, meals, transfers and transport, training, and project travel will all be taken care of so you can spend your evenings and weekends doing the thing that you came here for. To travel, learn and grow.
Our teaching programs are designed to help you broaden your horizons through work in local schools, community centres, rural schools, and local charities, where you will connect with local teachers and local volunteers in supporting sustainable long-term literacy projects. No prior teaching experience is essential for any of our teaching programs. Our local teams are always there to support you and give you ideas.
Our most popular destination for teaching is our India Teaching Program for Children where you will get extra support from a dedicated teaching coordinator and ample resources that are available for your use. We highly encourage you to join this program if you are first time volunteer.

Make a Difference
“We work in several local government schools in the Fort Kochi area that do not facilitate quality English learning that children need for getting into college or for their future career. Our volunteers fill in this gap by taking English classes for weaker students individually as well as in groups. We give them teaching materials that are bought by us and also donated by our volunteers which aid their learning”
