Mayatan offers Honduras a different model of high-quality education in English and Spanish. It is a locally-founded, women-founded, non-profit bilingual school in a small town. Honduran NGOs are frequently founded by outsiders, which may affect their feasibility. The school has no religious affiliation. Mayatan provides small classes (6-20 students), and is expanding its new high school.
We provide scholarships to nearly half our students, thereby making a life-changing education accessible to students from all social backgrounds. Scholarships range from half tuition to complete tuition, fees, books, transportation, meals, and uniforms. Mayatan commits to funding all scholarships regardless of sponsorship, but it actively seeks sponsors to fulfill its obligations. Sponsors are usually individuals or groups of individuals from North America and Europe who discover the school after visiting Copán Ruinas.
Currently hiring secondary teachers at our beautiful hillside campus (300 students), for the school year. Spanish language an advantage but not essential. You need to be positive, flexible, sensitive to cultural expectations, open minded, and able to make the most of minimal resources. Great chance to put your teaching skills to the test. A wonderful opportunity to live abroad and experience life in Honduras for a year!
