Volunteer Teaching

Oyster works directly with over 20 schools around the world. We have been developing our links with these schools since 2000. We ensure that our teaching projects are worthwhile for the school, the local community and you, the volunteer.

Why volunteer as a teacher?

Working as a volunteer teacher is an extremely fullfilling way to spend your gap year abroad or careerbreak. Children are full of energy and see the world from unique perspective – making each day different and exciting. If you are considering becoming a teacher, volunteering abroad is a fantastic way for you to gain valuable work experience. At Oyster, we believe that it is important that the schools that we work with benefit from having volunteers. As a volunteer teacher, you will be provided with full briefing, maximising the impact you can make teaching abroad. There is no better way to learn about a country than to live and work as a local community teacher. From Tanzania to Nepal, we have many teaching projects around the world.
