Help kids have a better future while also gaining a new skill and getting credit and managing an amazing and valuable project called Design for Change.
The program begins with a TESOL course through TEFL International, the worlds largest TESOL course provider with over 30 worldwide locations. The next step is learning about Design for Change and how to run the contest at the school. The remainder of the time is spent volunteering at a local government school where you will organize Design for Change and teach English 20 hours per week.
TEFL International, in partnership with Design for Change, offers something that we believe is completely unique in Study Abroad. A Service Learning project that involves learning new skills, helping others gain new skills, empowering children, becoming truly involved in, and even improving the local communities, and, dare we say it? Changing the world. Come to Thailand, Nepal, India or Vietnam and help students in needy schools by running a special contest called Design for Change--a contest where students develop and run projects to improve local communities--and teach English.
