Your Generous Support Makes Our Work Possible


A Note from WorldTeach Executive Director Dr. Mitra Shavarini


WorldTeach remains grateful for the active participation of our alumni, partners, and all other members of
our diverse community. In 2017, generous gifts from donors allowed us to provide programs that brought
teachers to countries that need vital educational support.

You understand our mission – that WorldTeach develops and nurtures global citizens while having a local
impact in partner countries.

You value our impact – that it’s multi-dimensional and multi-directional. We serve volunteers by initiating
them into global citizenship; we serve schools with the most vital tool for our “trade” – teachers; and we
serve the broader communities that are touched by the volunteers, in their home communities and abroad.
This year, we need your financial support more than ever.

WorldTeach is in desperate need to promote the benefits of genuine, immersive experiences. Without the
intervention of key community members like yourself, we will neither be able to serve our volunteers nor the
communities that need them.

Let’s make this year’s annual appeal the best ever! We’ve got a smart and dedicated team and great
programs. All that’s left is to have your partnership and participation.

Please give your tax-deductible donation today!

Your contribution sustains the work that must be done.

We seek, qualify, train, and support teachers who are placed in classrooms around the world. When you give to WorldTeach, you provide opportunities for our globally engaged citizens to serve in classrooms around the world. Your donation assures that students around the world are offered the opportunity to learn and grow in effective, caring classrooms.

You are nourishing an established infrastructure.

WorldTeach offers intensive training, 24/7 local support, and defined teaching roles in each host community. Your donation allows volunteers to work effectively and safely. For over 30 years, this has been our proven model of success.

We are proud of our history.

WorldTeach dates back to 1986, when students from Harvard University went to Kenya with a simple purpose: to see whether local schools needed assistance. That initial trip set our organization on the steady path of growth. Over the years, more than 7,000 worldwide volunteers have served in 25 countries around the globe.

Your donation provides a wellspring of global support.

Each year, the WorldTeach Annual Fund provides programming, resources, sponsored global classrooms, and more.

Thank you for your donation to WorldTeach!
