At International Volunteer HQ, we’re proud to support first-time teachers and experienced educators in increasing access to education in communities in over 35 destinations worldwide. Our volunteer abroad scholarships are open to anyone with a willingness to learn and get out of their comfort zone, while being immersed in a new country and culture alongside other international volunteers.
For our Teach & Volunteer Abroad Scholarship, a group of finalists were selected, and after voting concluded, Luiza Boguszewski from Brazil emerged as the winner.
Luiza will participate on a 2-week teaching volunteer abroad placement in the destination of her choice. Luiza’s scholarship includes an internationally recognized 100 hour CCELT TEFL course to take before she departs to the program of her choice, a US$1000 flight voucher from STA Travel, as well as a comprehensive volunteer travel insurance package from World Nomads. Luiza’s volunteer registration fee and volunteer program fee will be covered by IVHQ.
Luiza will be equipped with a TEFL certification from CCELT Online before departing to volunteer and teach English in the destination of her choice! In her spare time, she’ll be blogging (or vlogging) for IVHQ, sharing her volunteering experience and how she is applying the skills she’s developed from her TEFL course to her teaching placement.
The TEFL course proved to be incredibly valuable, despite my existing classroom experience as a teacher back at home. It has focused my planning, reminding me to prioritize student talking time. It has provided me with an enormous range of options for games and activities. It has helped me to understand the needs of children and teenagers in the classroom, and the stages of second language acquisition. - Hannah Pitts (Teach & Volunteer Abroad Scholarship Recipient)
