Please consider the English Opens Doors Program, participation is FREE and placements are available throughout Chile!
The English Opens Doors Program is sponsored by the United Nations Development Program and the Chilean Ministry of Education and seeks highly motivated individuals to work as English teaching assistants in public schools throughout Chile. A typical week for a full-time volunteer includes 24 hours of English teaching and 11 hours of extra-curricular activities. Volunteers teach alongside a Chilean head teacher and work with students ranging from 5th grade (10-11 years old) to 12th grade (17-18 years old).
