English is a language that isn’t spoken much in Brazil, but the ability to speak it opens up a range of job possibilities. This is seen as especially valuable in poorer communities, where opportunities are often limited and even fewer English speakers are available to teach the language.
Volunteer English teachers are needed to host lessons in a much more informal environment than in normal schools. Classes are based in community spaces, meaning you’re free to be more creative with your lessons, which are generally run for small classes of students ranging from children to adults.
You can either act as a lead teacher or assist local staff. The inclusion of a fluent English speaker makes a tremendous impact on language acquisition.
This project is well suited to volunteers who are fluent in English and have a passion for education. You aren’t required to have prior teaching experience, however we do encourage volunteers to come prepared by completing some relevant training, like a teaching English as a foreign language (TEFL) course.

Please note that there is a minimum duration of 3 weeks for this project.Apply now
