The Department of Education of American Samoa works with WorldTeach to send volunteer teachers to American Samoa to teach English, and sometimes Math and Science, in local elementary and high schools. In school, English is spoken but most students will speak to each other in the vernacular Samoan. WorldTeach volunteers in American Samoa are also encouraged to participate in extracurricular activities and community life with projects such as tutoring programs, started math and science clubs, and participated in student governments.
This program is funded by the American Samoa Department of Education.
With our year-long program, you can also become TEFL certified to earn credibility and give you an edge in the ESL teaching job market. While certification usually costs about $1,899, with WorldTeach you can become certified for only $350 while also gaining priceless in-country teaching experience.
