WorldTeach Program seeks volunteers to teach English in Hunan for one year
THE FOLLOWING MESSAGE HAS BEEN POSTED AS A PUBLIC SERVICE. THIS IMPLIES NO ENDORSEMENT OF THE WORLDTEACH PROGRAM.
Seniors: Spend a year in Hunan, China with WorldTeach.
*About the China Year Program*
We are moving into our sixth year partnering with the Hunan Department of Education in China, where we have sent over two hundred volunteers to teach English in the public schools of Hunan province. There is currently a huge demand for English teachers in China. In many parts of the country, only students from the most elite schools have the opportunity to learn English from a native speaker. The WorldTeach Hunan Program was established to bring volunteer English teachers to a broader range of students through the Province's public schools.
Our partner generously subsidizes our volunteers, facilitating the participation of all qualified individuals. The program fee is $500 plus a $1000 returnable deposit, which covers pre-departure information and preparation, round-trip international airfare from a US departure city, visa, intensive in-country orientation training, health insurance, meals and housing during orientation and throughout your teaching service, and 24 hour in-country support. Once in-country, the volunteers will also receive a monthly stipend of approximately $300USD. Please read more about our costs and services at http://www.worldteach.org/program_information/costs.html.

WorldTeach is a non-profit, non-governmental organization that provides opportunities for individuals to make a meaningful contribution to international education by living and working as volunteer teachers in developing countries. Based at the Center for International Development at Harvard University, WorldTeach offers the benefits of a well-established volunteer organization, while also providing more comprehensive, personalized support and training as a small NGO. In each of our programs, volunteers are placed in schools and host communities in developing countries that specifically request WorldTeach volunteers and would otherwise be unable to afford or locate qualified teachers. Volunteers receive training, language preparation, and field support, empowering them to make an impact that will last long after they leave.
