Want to do something that matters?
Don't have any teaching experience?
Volunteer with SVS School for English in Sri Lanka and they'll give you all the training and materials you need to make a difference in the lives of hundreds of students.
A small, non-profit school based in Colombo, SVS aims to empower adults in Sri Lanka by helping them to develop their English language skills and broaden their worldview.
Spend 6 months working with them and you'll learn not just how to teach English grammar, but also how to open minds and change lives as well as get to explore one of the world's most beautiful islands every weekend! The classes are held daily and you will be in charge of three classes each term. The heads of the school will offer all the support needed for your classes.
SVS volunteers stay with us for a minimum of 6 months and during their time with us, they teach up to 30hrs of English every week, to classes that include university students, Buddhist monks, trainee architects, lawyers, and more. It's challenging, rewarding, and truly fulfilling.
All teachers stay in a beautiful house on the outskirts of Colombo, near the parliament building. There are many footpaths and a large lake very close by and the area is known for its relaxing feel. Each teacher will have their own room and shared bathroom with one other teacher.
