As a WorldTeach volunteer in South Africa, you will witness firsthand the diversity of South Africa and the aftermath of the apartheid movement. When you first arrive in South Africa, you will go through a WorldTeach orientation that includes an introduction to life and culture in South Africa, visits to the schools and communities where we work and information on health and safety issues. The primary purpose of volunteer teachers in South Africa is to provide educational services to disadvantaged communities. Volunteers will be involved in winter courses for various grades that include English literacy programs, computer training, math, and special projects.
With our summer 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 $195 while also gaining priceless in-country teaching experience.
