Are you interested in making meaningful contributions to a local community while working towards the bigger global picture of spreading education, language and cultural awareness?

Teach, study and travel in Austria with a non-profit organization while earning an internationally recognized TEFL qualification! As a Student Teacher on our TEFL-YL Program, you will travel with your teaching practice group while learning to teach English as a foreign language to young learners. Student Teachers will spend more than 300 hours in the classroom helping children learn English in fun and engaging ways while acting as a cultural ambassador and bridging international gaps.

As a non-profit with a mission to provide quality teacher training while simultaneously reaching every Austrian child with a free and fun English project, we are eager to offer scholarships to motivated and qualified candidates to participate in our program. Successful candidates will receive, in addition to a place on the program, shared accommodation, basic food supplies, teaching materials and transportation to and from schools for the duration of the program.
By helping children learn English you are not only increasing their prospects but helping create a ripple effect that extends beyond the school system and into the larger international community!
