Description

The Cause:

English has become one of the primary world languages and many Thai students (K-12) are now studying in English medium schools throughout the country.  The door is open for you to reach the heart of these Thai children, parents and into the lives of those who are within the Educational Community. With less than 1% Christian, many are waiting to experience the love of Christ for the first time.

The Task:

We need qualified teachers to become part of the Educational Community in various communities throughout Thailand.  These teachers will become full time personnel for a local school but will also serve as a relational bridge between the school and the church.  Opportunities for training of teachers or government personnel may arise through involvement in the community as well as local church ministry involvement.

  • Teach main stream courses in English/French (opportunities exist K-12)
  • Various locations throughout Thailand. Want to live in the city, country, beach, or mountains?
  • Serve and participate in the local church as time permits

The school year opens in May so it would be recommended that you arrive in late April.  Applications will need at least a undergraduate degree and experience in teaching is recommended.

Volunteer budget required will include return ticket but will be determined once the location within Thailand has been chosen and the monthly salary has been set by the local school.  Monthly expenses will average approximately $1000-$1250 per month
