Teaching in Latin America & the Caribbean

Volunteer on a Teaching project in Latin American with Projects Abroad

You can impact the lives of numerous children and adults by volunteering to teach in Latin America and the Caribbean. You don’t have to be a teacher to volunteer abroad on our teaching projects. There is no need to have a TEFL or TESOL qualification to gain international teaching experience. You don’t even need to speak the local language where you are volunteering. The teaching program is open to all volunteers whether you are on a gap year, at university or wanting a career break.

You will find a warm welcome awaits you from our students in Latin American and the Caribbean. A variety of opportunities teaching English and teaching French are available in urban, semi-rural, and rural settings within Argentina, Bolivia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Jamaica, Mexico, and Peru. Volunteers have the opportunity to teach in primary and secondary schools, and often work alongside local teachers as collaborative counterparts.

Teach in Latin America & the Caribbean - What Is It Like?

You will find that schools in Latin America and the Caribbean encompass a wide range of resources. Most schools are equipped with educational tools, and students tend to have a good grasp of basic English and/or French grammar. As a teacher of English or French, you will fill the gaps by helping students better their pronunciation and conversational skills. You may find that the greatest tool and bridge for effective learning is yourself. The students will want to find out about you, the country you come from, and your interests, topics that can be incorporated into many language lessons.

Whatever skills and talents you have, teaching in Latin American and Caribbean schools offers a rewarding combination of the new, exciting, and life-changing, as well as the opportunity to grow both personally and professionally.
