Recruiting Organization: Bilingual Education for Central America (BECA)

BECA invites international volunteers to join our volunteer teaching team each year, supporting both elementary and middle school students at 2 local schools, San Jeronimo Bilingual School and Santa Monica Bilingual School. At a high level, each volunteer teacher is responsible for: leading an English curriculum for students in grades PreK-9 in ELA, Science, Math, Art, PE and Computers (all classes are capped at 25 students, and most teachers take on one full curriculum for a grade level) supporting fellow teachers in the classroom, getting to know your students and their families, and immersing oneself in Honduran culture. Don’t worry - we’ll be there to support you with every step along the way!

Prior to arrival, international volunteers will have 2-3 virtual onboarding calls to prepare for their time in-country. Our international team arrives in-country in June 2024, and are placed in a homestay with a local family upon arriving in Honduras before moving into BECA housing. The initial weeks in-country are spent embarking on a summer-long training program that teaches you: the BECA curriculum, classroom management, and so much more. Once the school year begins, BECA teachers receive ongoing professional development and training throughout the academic year.

REQUIRED DUTIES:

  • Facilitate relationships with students’ parents and other community members
  • Plan lessons and teach in English (all subjects with the exception of Social Studies and Spanish)
  • Foster a safe and productive classroom environment for students
  • Serve as a Lunch/Recess monitor
  • Collaborate with the teaching team (Honduran and International) on school projects, events, planning, and curriculum development
  • Contribute to the collaborative and respectful group living experience
  • Serve as an ambassador for BECA by helping to spread the word about our work to your families and friends
  • Participate in professional development events, such as local education-based conferences, and BECA-lead efforts

BENEFITS: All BECA volunteer teachers receive...

  • A monthly food stipend
  • Local transportation to/from the airport upon arrival and departure
  • Housing (within a shared living accommodation)
  • High-speed internet, and all utilities, provided by BECA
  • Assistance in obtaining temporary residency status, or support with obtaining a temporary VISA, depending on volunteer need/local regulations
  • Intensive summer training, and ongoing training and professional development throughout the academic year
  • Immersion in a Spanish speaking community, with opportunities for Spanish-language acquisition
