Teach English - BRAZIL

The Complexo do Alemão favela in northern Rio has little to no access to English classes. As an underprivileged community, learning English can open up new opportunities for employment. However, affording English instruction is often very difficult, so native English speakers willing to donate their time and deep understanding of the language will allow this community to not only be more competitive in the job market, but also help the children perform better in school. With 5 to 30 students per class you’ll have the chance to really improve their pronunciation and conversational ability.

Teach English - ECUADOR

You’ll work with primary school students and help with snack time and organizing fun activities to make their learning experience more engaging. With increased confidence in speaking English, these young children will have better job prospects when they complete their schooling.
