What is English Around the World?

"English Around the World," is a volunteer-driven initiative facilitating English language education across borders. Our program provides a platform for individuals passionate about teaching to connect with learners globally, fostering language proficiency and cultural exchange. Volunteers can connect with learners from various backgrounds, all from the convenience of their own homes. Whether you're an experienced educator or someone eager to make a difference, there's a place for you in our community. No previous teaching experience is needed, and all are welcome. For sample English lessons, check out the Get Involved tab to learn more.

BECOME A LEADER

Volunteer Leader Description: There are two kinds of leadership positions: Executive Director and Program Director. A program only has one Executive Director, but multiple program directors. Leaders are generally responsible for overseeing recruitment, retention, and reflection with volunteers. They also coordinate service with community partners and ensure their program runs smoothly. Volunteer leaders may also share the responsibilities of volunteers as outlined in the Volunteer Description. For more information, visit our section called Be a Leader!

Volunteer Leader Commitment: In addition to volunteering, Volunteer leaders commit to a 1-hour monthly team meeting to discuss needs and make plans for the program.
