Program Overview

Program Description:
A great way to gain experience living and teaching in a foreign community, while also making a positive contribution to international development.

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.

Setting Description:
Volunteers in Poland mainly teach high school students, but occasionally some middle school or even elementary school students participate in the program. Class size will vary between 10 and 15 students. Volunteers will be responsible for teaching conversational English, basic grammar, and some lessons on American culture. All volunteers will have internet access, and some will also have computer labs to use for instruction. Classes are open to the entire community, allowing students with a wide range of English skills to participate.
Cost:
The cost of the summer program is $3,990. This covers pre-departure information and preparation, round-trip international airfare from a US departure city to Warsaw, overseas medical and emergency evacuation insurance, one week in-country orientation as well as a mid-service and end-of-service conference, 24-hour field staff support, room and board, and alumni support.
