Affordable Teaching Volunteer Abroad Projects

Are you seeking volunteer teaching abroad opportunities to help increase access to education in communities around the world?

IVHQ’s Teaching volunteer abroad projects enable international volunteers to work alongside local teachers with the objective of promoting greater literacy, supporting opportunities for higher education, building vocational skills and enhancing career prospects among students. 

First-time teachers and experienced educators can volunteer to teach abroad with IVHQ in over 35 destinations. As a volunteer teacher abroad, you may have the opportunity to teach independently, provide support to local teachers, or team up with other international volunteers to take lessons in a range of classroom settings, including schools, tutoring programs, community centers, special needs facilities and childcare centers.

Access to education and the opportunity to study English are highly valued in the communities we work with. Whether you’re a volunteer teaching English abroad, or supporting the instruction of other subjects or extracurricular activities, the students are eager to learn and participate. 

The influence that international teaching volunteers have on the communities we work with goes beyond the classroom. Crossing boundaries to work side-by-side with students and teachers from different cultures fosters a two-way exchange, building cross-cultural understanding and global awareness.

Volunteer Project Review by Kathleen Curran

I had an amazing experience in India. The students at Tagore School were so rewarding to work with. I loved forming relationship with the students and staff who were incredibly welcoming and helpful, and seeing the students progress and learn. It's a very unique opportunity to be able to volunteer in a school with just a desire to make a difference. My homestay was perfect. My hosts made me feel like a part of their family and took such good care of me. They always made sure we had everything we needed and were healthy and happy for the duration of our stay. My experience would not have been the same without them. There was a really nice balance between structure and freedom in my experience. We had a nice  day to day routine, with our coordinator and placement staff always there to help or advise, but we were also allotted freedom to see and experience India.
