Connecting volunteers, classrooms and communities
About Travel Teacher
The world is your classroom
Since our formation in 2015, Travel Teacher has been dedicated to providing opportunities for students, professionals and explorers from all walks of life, regardless of background, to make a difference in a new part of the world, through organised, innovative, ‘real life’ service activities that address community needs.
We are a community of driven, empathetic, and ambitious individuals that seek to make volunteering abroad more ethical, meaningful and educational, we want travel to change you in ways that you have never imagined!
We believe that the deepest travel happens when you integrate into a community by actively participating, opening yourself to interact with the locals and understanding the way others live.
This can be as easy as taking part in cultural rituals, eating traditional dishes from the region and generally being engulfed into the world around you.
You will be encouraged to step outside of your comfort zone, try something new and discover life skills that impact the world positively. Our programmes are a great way for you to learn more about yourself!
By discovering where your individual passions lie, you will become more inspired to learn, explore and to create for yourself a happy, healthy future. So park your fears and hang-ups, join us and engage with people of the world.
