Help underprivileged children learn English in the Dominican Republic and Haiti! Volunteer part time hours with children and have the rest of your time to travel, experience the culture, and just enjoy life with other volunteers in your group.

These children come from very limited means. You have the opportunity to provide them a free English education. Learning the English language will be invaluable for the future, especially living in such a touristic area. Make a difference by volunteering in the Caribbean!

Live in Puerto Plata, DR which is a beautiful tourist destination. You'll get the best of both worlds by living 10 minutes from the beach while also experiencing true Dominican culture and see how they really live outside of the tourism.

In Haiti you'll live in Saint-Marc at an orphanage with the children. Become part of the family there as you spend time with the orphans and other children in need in the community.

International Language Programs (ILP) is a non-profit service organization based in Orem, Utah that sends 18-25 year old volunteers to give the essential gift of the English language with young children across the globe as well as opportunities to serve in an orphanage. Over 9,000 volunteers have served with ILP to help children learn English, with numbers growing quickly.

Description

International Language Programs (ILP) is a non-profit, volunteer service organization based in Provo, UT. ILP volunteers maintain high moral standards. Particular religious affiliation is not a requirement for participation but a commitment to live by the ILP Code of Conduct is. Since 1992 ILP has successfully taught English to children around the world. ILP provides nearly 400 volunteer and paid teachers each year for private and public schools worldwide. Approximately 7,500 children participate in our program in 16 schools in Russia, Taiwan, China, Ukraine, Mexico, and the U.S. With ILP children learn English in an environment of love and excitement. In approximately 500 hours of instruction (one school year) in an ILP beginning program, children become functionally fluent in English. After graduating from the beginning program, children continue to develop their comprehension and speaking skills. The second year is designed to help the students maintain their fluency while developing essential basic reading and writing skills. Following completion of that level, the Elementary program takes children to a higher level of fluency, achieving peer-level competency. Children study from textbooks and use curriculum currently used in American schools. The students learn to speak about subjects such as science, math, social studies, and literature. Having completed the follow-up program, children are able to learn with equal competency in classes taught in either English or their native language.
