Guyana, a Caribbean nation, is the only English-speaking country in South America, making it the perfect teaching abroad destination for those interested in teaching a variety of subjects. The Ministry of Education works with WorldTeach to sponsor volunteers to teach in Guyana. Volunteer teachers will be able to teach a variety of different subjects, with a special focus on mathematics, chemistry, physics, and biology. Once you arrive in Guyana, you will be placed in a public school based on your skills and interests and the school's needs. Volunteers receive a stipend of $225 USD/month to cover living expenses in Guyana.
