Year-Long Funded Teaching Opportunities in the Marshall Islands and American Samoa

Programs are funded by each country's ministry/department of education. Applications will be accepted into June 2018, and volunteers will depart July/August 2018 for one year. Teaching experience is not required and the program is open to international students. Volunteers are full time teachers of English, math and science.
"The most important thing I learned during my WorldTeach experience is that I can step out of my comfort zone and into an entirely new experience and come out having accomplished more than I ever expected. I learned that having an open mind, a sense of adventure, and persistence will allow me to make the most of every experience and opportunity in life." American Samoa volunteer

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.

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.
