Teacher Professional Development

You have something to teach, and we all have a lot to learn.

WorldTeach offers the opportunity to teach in communities around the globe. We seek motivated and inquisitive global citizens who yearn to do more than simply tour a different country; those who look to immerse themselves within a culture and want to live purposeful lives. Our participants have unparalleled opportunity for personal and professional growth while bridging world cultures.

Over Thirty Years of Experience in Teaching Abroad

WorldTeach has grown from a small group of Harvard University students teaching in a single Kenyan village to an established, knowledge-based global organization with thirty plus years of experience. Well over 7,000 alumni served as our reliable foundation for those seeking opportunities to get involved with international education.

Intensive Training and Ongoing Support

All our volunteers participate in dynamic trainings throughout their experience: pedagogy & curriculum, TEFL, cultural adjustment, health & safety, language, and country-specific information. WorldTeach volunteers are prepared to join their new communities and transition into their teaching roles.

A Mutual Opportunity to Share Your Knowledge, Culture, and Language

WorldTeach experiences give you the opportunity to step out of your comfort zone. It is a cultural immersion opportunity that opens your life’s perspective to become a more empathetic individual. You will play an equally important role in the lives of the counterculture who you touch through this experience.

In-Country Staff Support

Our programs are managed by skilled, compassionate, and supportive staff who will help you navigate life in – and out of – the classroom.

Streamlined Pre-Departure Guidance and Visa Acquisition

WorldTeach will help you navigate the daunting task of preparing to live in another country for an extended period of time. Immigration bureaucracy can be tough but we know how to handle those logistics.

“In 1986, I went to Kenya as the first WorldTeach volunteer. My hope was to bridge the gap between what I studied and the realities of life in the field. That’s what WorldTeach was and still is today, we give each and every volunteer teacher an opportunity to link theories with reality and find their own way of narrowing the development gap around the world.”
