La Serena Teaching/Education Program

Overall rating: 0 based on 0 reviews

Program Description

The Chilean Ministry of Education is determined to ensure that Chile becomes bilingual, with first through twelfth grade students being taught English. Volunteers with this program will work with local Chilean instructors to teach English. Placements will be in the secondary, primary, and kindergarten levels based on need.

Your main task as an English instructor is to teach spelling, correct grammar, verbal exercises, and pronunciation. Develop a syllabus and curriculum with the local teacher. While we do not require a TEFL certificate, we need our volunteers to be able to speak Spanish. You can combine this program with the Language and Cultural Immersion program.


These are 100% tax deductible program fees, so please fundraise! We can help you with procuring a visa, finding affordable travel insurance, and planning flights. We are available for your questions, so please inquire today. Volunteers can decide the start date of their program with a Broader View Volunteer (ABV). Volunteers are welcome to arrive any day on any flight.
