Now is a crucial time to be a WorldTeach volunteer in Thailand as the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) has created an easier process for migration amongst its 11 member nations in the region and made English the official language.

As a volunteer teacher, you will be in northeastern Thailand working with primary or secondary school students, focusing on English language education and mostly in underprivileged, countryside schools. Volunteers give these students a chance to interact with foreigners and be introduced to different cultures. The goal of this program is to give the local students at these schools a chance to compete with students at more privileged schools for a chance at a better future.

- Complete intensive 4 week training program in country

- Complete required TEFL certification requirements both pre departure and in country (optional)
