"The success of your summer is in your hands. If you are passionate about what you’re doing then I guarantee you will have the best summer of your life." WorldTeach Namibia Volunteer
Are you looking for an exciting opportunity abroad this summer that could change your life and also have a meaningful impact on the lives of students? Do you want to improve a second language fluency, or put your language skills and education to use? WorldTeach hosts eight week volunteer teaching programs that will allow these goals to become a reality. WorldTeach has summer programs in Brazil, Ecuador, India, Morocco, Namibia, and South Africa.
Volunteers teach different subjects including English as a Foreign Language and computer technology. The format of the summer program begins with a week-long orientation upon arrival to the host country, followed by six weeks of teaching in the volunteer’s placement school. Volunteers are engaged full time in educational activities and teaching whether in the classroom, at a camp, or in another type of academic setting. The group then returns together to conclude the summer with a week-long reflection and analysis of their work, including travel excursions within the country.
