AEC-TEA Association seeks Volunteer English teachers to work in Capim Grosso, Bahia, Brazil. AEC-TEA provides affordable courses of small groups with native speakers, as well as individual tutoring for language teachers, as a means to sustain our local community center.
We ask for a commitment of at least three months and give preference to those who can commit to longer stays. Volunteers pay no fees. However, since AEC-TEA is an all volunteer-run organization which receives no funding, volunteers are asked cover their own food and housing costs through a monthly contribution of $200.
While teaching experience and knowledge of Portuguese is helpful, AEC-TEA gives greater preference to a volunteer who can make a commitment to:
- being open and eager to learn about local culture, make connections in the community and take initiative in diverse activities - working and living as part of a group and international team - exercising patience, flexibility and willingness to look for solutions to challenges - living simply and working creatively with minimal resources - having realistic expectations and a sincere desire to work within a new, local association - trying to see his/her contribution as one small, yet essential, piece of a longer process
- Training Provided
- Housing Available
