Cassandra’s Answer

I served as a Peace Corps Education Volunteer from 2016-2018 and it is a wonderful way to begin a career in international education. Since completing my service with Peace Corps South Africa, I have found that it has been a beneficial organization to have on my resume and has opened many opportunities for me in education as well as other fields. I know many volunteers who have gone on after service to be hired by international schools, and are more than able to support themselves. For some positions, the training offered by Peace Corps may even waive the need for TEFL/TESL/TESOL training.


Another program to look into for the future might be the JET program. I know a lot of volunteers who have taught internationally through them and enjoyed the experience.

I have been a traveling English teacher for 3 years now . I have lived in Russia and Mexico. I recommend while you are in college to get some volunteer experience teaching and working with people of different backgrounds. You can make good money teaching abroad and often school give good benefits ( vacation, paid flight,etc). You dont necessarily need an bachelors in English ( unless you want to become a teacher for life). Most schools are looking for a bachelors degree and a TEFL or Celta certification.

Ana recommends the following next steps:

Get TEFL certificate
