Volunteering abroad will change your life
It gives you the opportunity to learn new skills, immerse yourself in unfamiliar cultures and develop as a person. On top of this, it is a fantastic way to travel and see the world, experiencing countries in a way that is impossible on the heavier trodden tourist trail, all whilst giving something back to local communities.
Our programmes aim to support under-resourced schools and teachers, through the provision of volunteer assistance with teaching, games and activities both inside the classroom and out. Your experience will be important, relevant and helpful to the community you serve.
During the service portion of your programme, volunteers will get the opportunity to teach children fundamental academic and life skills, making a heart connection with the needs of others. Being able to fill those needs is both gratifying and exhilarating, you will certainly be self fulfilled and proud of your achievements. You will work alongside full time staff to provide support and an extra dimension to the education provided to these children.
Such a unique experience. You meet such amazing people and see the purest side of the world.
Travel and teach
Half of your day will be spent in school whilst the remainder will be spent exploring with your fellow group members and our expert team. We pack a huge amount into our expeditions to make sure you get the absolute most from your experience.
This programme is open to anyone who is passionate about education, travel and helping global communities. You’ll get hands-on experience working with children, which is perfect if you’re a current teacher or planning on becoming one in the future. Even if you’re not pursuing a career in education, you’ll learn skills that you can apply to any place of work. These skills include communication, organisation, leadership, and adaptability.
If you have no experience but are still interested in teaching, we encourage you to sign up! You’ll receive full support and training from your programme leader, not forgetting the encouragement from your fellow volunteers, meaning you won’t be left in the dark during the programme.
When you volunteer with Travel Teacher, you immerse yourself in a unique culture, gain real global perspective and learn a lot about yourself in the process. Your journey is personalized to provide the opportunity for genuine, meaningful personal growth.
