Summer Teaching Opportunities in Morocco

In Morocco, WorldTeach summer volunteers teach English and Life Skills to under-served teens and young adults. Placements are in the cities of Casablanca, Rabat, and Fes, where volunteers work with organizations in the slum areas serving orphans and troubled youth. Volunteers live with host families to see more of life in this fascinating country described by the late King Hassan II as being "like a tree whose roots lie in Africa but whose leaves breathe in Europe." Note: Volunteers will experience the entire month of Ramadan in this Muslim country, although they need not observe the fast and host families will make arrangements for the noon meal. With our summer program, you can also become TEFL certified to earn credibility and give you an edge in the ESL teaching job market. While certification usually costs about $1,899, with WorldTeach you can become certified for FREE while also gaining priceless in-country teaching experience.

Year-Long Fully Funded Teaching Opportunities in the Marshall Islands

Marshallese is the native language, but English is commonly spoken throughout the islands. Since 2001, the country policy has been that English will be the primary language of instruction from Grade 1. Primary education is compulsory for Grades 1-8, yet many children are out of school. Many do not attend high school, and only a few enter college. Following a month of in-country orientation, volunteers will teach for one academic year at their assigned school. The school year begins in late August and runs through late May. Volunteers teach in public elementary schools, high schools, and occasionally vocational schools in Majuro and on the outer islands. Volunteers should be prepared for the challenges of teaching in the Marshalls. Schools on the outer islands lack basic supplies. Volunteers often purchase pens, paper, and markers before leaving for the country. Furthermore, volunteers may have to teach students with a wide range of English skills. While these circumstances may be frustrating at first, successful volunteers will be adept at finding solutions that enable them to teach effectively despite the limited resources of the islands. With our year-long program, you can also become TEFL certified to earn credibility and give you an edge in the ESL teaching job market. While certification usually costs about $1,899, with WorldTeach you can become certified for only $350 while also gaining priceless in-country teaching experience. The Marshall Islands program is almost two different programs rolled into one. All volunteers teach English in public schools around the country. Outside of that one united theme, the volunteer experience depends on placement. An urban placement on Majuro, the capital atoll, or Ebeye, an island that serves a U.S. military base, is defined by the city and its influence. An outer island placement on a remote atoll will be defined by the confines of the island and all that it is lacking. Volunteers in urban placements usually live in teacher housing on or very near the school. The housing is basic, but satisfactory. Urban volunteers have access to supermarkets, internet, telephones and other modern convenience. Their classes tend to be larger and more advanced. They have access to a variety of food and usually cook for themselves. The outer islands are a very different story. Pristine and remote, these placements are in small communities living on atolls that have remained largely untouched by modernity. Life here is beautiful and very difficult. Internet and telephones are largely the stuff of dreams. Necessities as basic as water can be hard to come by. Food consists of fish from the lagoon and fruit that can be grown on the island. Volunteers live with a host family who provides a doorway into the complex and all-consuming social structures that allow these communities to function. Classes are smaller and usually not as advanced. School supplies are limited at best. The outer islands are, by all accounts, a true adventure.

Summer Teaching Opportunities in Namibia

WorldTeach Namibia summer volunteers serve as ICT teachers to both students and teachers/administrators, which practically means acting as a resource for improving basic computer literacy, and how to use this technology to make teaching as well as learning more effective and efficient. Moreover, because this instruction is done in English, volunteers are secondarily improving English-language skills, which is deeply needed. Not only does Namibia lack qualified teachers generally, there is an even greater shortage when accounting for the those that lack the ability to teach in English, as mandated by the government. Moreover, such shortages are exacerbated by the HIV/AIDS pandemic. As such, most volunteers are also asked to serve as teachers in other subjects, especially English, as time, scheduling and interest allows. In addition, volunteers have the chance to become involved in extracurricular activities, within their school and/or community, in a variety of areas. Many choose to teach HIV/AIDS awareness classes, athletics, and work remedially with students that need extra assistance in certain areas, like reading. With our summer program, you can also become TEFL certified to earn credibility and give you an edge in the ESL teaching job market. While certification usually costs about $1,899, with WorldTeach you can become certified for FREE while also gaining priceless in-country teaching experience. Volunteers will be placed in primary or secondary schools, in both rural and urban areas, participating in Namibia's ICT in Education Initiative. Placements are typically individual (one volunteer per school), so that the maximum number of schools can be served. While you are likely to be the only WorldTeach volunteer at your school, placements are clustered so that volunteers are within visiting distance of other volunteers. Volunteers live either in government-provided teacher housing at their school, typically with other Namibian or volunteer teachers, or with a host family. Volunteers will have their own furnished room, although share common rooms with their housemates, if they have them. WorldTeach requires that all housing have running water, electricity and fully-equipped kitchens. Volunteers are expected to be able to cook for themselves, though will often share these duties with housemates or with their host family.
