How will I benefit from volunteering?
You will gain invaluable teaching and leadership skills as well as experience in English as a Foreign Language.

Yes, I recommend this program

A Life-Changing Program

I've worked with Outreach360 for over three years now, and I can honestly say that the program has changed my life. As a Lead Teacher, I built lesson plans, created homework, and taught about 20 students in various levels 5 days a week. My students were bright, engaging, and genuinely some of the most passionate people I have ever met. I learned a tremendous amount about myself as a leader and volunteer, becoming a more compassionate and thoughtful educator and person in the process. The staff dedicates every waking moment to making sure that the students get access to opportunities otherwise unavailable to them and works hard to support and guide volunteers. It is a thoughtfully organized group that utilizes its volunteers and resources to the fullest potential in order to maximize growth in the students. I would absolutely recommend volunteering with Outreach360 for anyone looking to make a real difference in education.

What was the most surprising thing you saw or did?
This program and its students are full of surprises, but I think the most surprising part for me was the growth I saw in my class in such a short amount of time. Students that began the class shy or confused would quickly end up writing full-length essays and eagerly raising their hands. Every single student overcame significant reading, writing, or speaking difficulties during just a few short months, and I was honestly shocked at the amount that they absorbed. I think their progress really speaks to the level of dedication and hard work that each student in the program is willing to put in.
