Roles & Desirable Qualifications

Volunteers are expected to be punctual, flexible and maintain a positive attitude. Although this is a volunteer program it must be taken seriously and treated like a job. It is up to the volunteer to be responsible and meet the standards and rules set forth by the program and your school.

Academic Roles: At school, volunteers co-teach with up to three Local English Teachers for a maximum of 30 hours per week, which includes time spent planning lessons. The schedule will be determined by the school principal. There is only one volunteer per school. Volunteers create interactive activities with a specific focus on listening and speaking skills. Many volunteers organize extracurricular activities based on their personal interests and the needs of the schools.

Non Academic Roles: At home, volunteers are expected to provide their host families with three hours of English lessons each week. Volunteers participate in cultural exchange activities with their host families and integrate with the local communities.
