Volunteers co-teach with up to three Local English Teachers for a maximum of 30 hours per week, which includes time spent planning lessons. The schedule will be determined by the school principal. There is only one volunteer per school. Volunteers create interactive activities with a specific focus on listening and speaking skills. Many volunteers organize extracurricular activities based on their personal interests and the needs of the schools.
At home, volunteers are expected to provide their host families with three hours of English lessons each week. Volunteers participate in cultural exchange activities with their host families and integrate with the local communities.
The minimum requirements for being accepted as a Volunteer into Teach and Learn with Georgia are as follows:
Native speaker of English language
Two years of post-secondary education

Volunteers are given a $300 monthly stipend during their 6-12 month teaching tour.

This is a fantastic way to gain teaching experience and see the world.
