Ukraine – TESOL


Ukraine - Teaching English as a second language

We are very excited to announce the successful addition of our TESOL program at school #12 in Smila Ukraine! This two week program is an amazing chance to work with children and help them learn their second language. You do not need to speak Ukrainian to apply. It is also not necessary to have a teaching background, but it is a bonus. Volunteers must have the desire to help children learn English. Volunteers will also be required to prepare lessons, games and other activities for their daily classes. We will work side by side with the teachers of the summer camp to provide these children the opportunity to learn English from native English speakers and let them use their English skills. Housing for this program will be provided by We Are One and food is also included in the price of program participation. Our days end early so their is plenty of time to prepare for the next days lessons as well as travel outside of the city and see the beauty that Ukraine holds. We will finish our trip with a short stay in Kiev, Ukraine's capitol city. Where you can see the history and the beauty of a country in reconstruction.

Building relationships

The children of Ukraine are the future of Ukraine. Together you will have the chance to meet students of all backgrounds and give them the tools to create a better life for themselves, their families and their communities

Teaching experiance

Many of our volunteers have never seen themselves as the teaching type. Volunteers see first hand the impact that they have on the children we work with and how important sharing and communicating is. Giving a small part of you for the greater good is an incredible feeling. Not to mention looks great on a resume! 

Experience and the future

The chance to impact such a young and motivated group of children is indescribable. Whether you are looking into teaching professionally or just love working with kids, this is where you belong!
