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.

WorldTeach volunteers work as English, Mathematics and Science teachers in a wide range of Secondary Schools throughout the country. Volunteers will teach at the O-Level, Form 1 through Form 4. It is possible that some more advanced A-Level courses will be taught as well. Like local teachers, WorldTeach volunteers will teach approximately 20 classes per week for 45 minutes each class.

Setting Description:
Placements will generally be in pairs with one other WorldTeach volunteer sharing accommodations. Housemates may teach at different schools in neighboring schools and/or towns. Additionally, there may be other WorldTeach volunteers in the region, though some placements are very secluded. Volunteers will live in school-provided housing and will have their own furnished room, although they might share common rooms with other teachers or staff.
Cost:
The cost of the year-long program is $5,990. This covers pre-departure information and preparation, round-trip international airfare from a US departure city to Dar Es Salaam, overseas medical and emergency evacuation insurance, 3-week long in-country orientation as well as a mid-service and end-of-service conference, 24-hour field staff support, housing and a living stipend, and alumni support. Volunteers receive a stipend of approximately $200 each month from the Ministry of Education. This st
