Program Overview

Program Description:
WorldTeach is a non-profit, non-governmental organization founded by a group of Harvard students in 1986 in response to the need for educational assistance in developing countries. It also addressed a growing interest among people in the U.S. and elsewhere to serve, teach and learn as volunteers overseas. Since its inception, WorldTeach has placed thousands of volunteer educators in communities throughout Asia, Latin America, Africa, Eastern Europe and the Pacific.

Your service in Ecuador will begin with one week of Orientation. Orientation includes discussions of teaching methods and practice, health and safety issues, information about culture and life in Ecuador, and Spanish language classes. After orientation, you will travel to your teaching placement where you will teach for approximately seven weeks. Volunteers will convene again as a group for an end-of-service conference.

Setting Description:
Volunteers teach at many different institutions throughout the country, and may be placed independently or with a small group of other volunteers (from both the summer and year-long programs). Volunteers live and eat meals with a host family.
Cost:
The cost of the Ecuador summer program is $4,590 for the year and $3,590 for a semester. This includes pre-departure information and preparation, round-trip international airfare, one week in-country orientation, health insurance, transportation to your site, meals and housing during orientation and teaching service, and 24-hour field support.
