Teach English to deserving children who are full of spirit and enthusiasm.

With many worthwhile Travellers projects on-going in Rio, you choose the age group you want to work with. You may want to concentrate your time in just one institute or you may be keen to spread your help between a selection of institutes, gaining a varied experience.

► An exciting, never-to-be-forgotten adventure!
► The rewards from helping others and Making a Difference!
► New skills, more confidence, a greater understanding of a different culture, invaluable personal and professional development.
► An entry on your CV or résumé that will put you head and shoulders above most others in the job market
► And best of all ... an unforgettable experience!

We offer teacher training courses (1 day intensive, or weekend recognized TEFL qualifications in London and Brighton- more details on the website). Whilst exposure to English is vital to the kids of these projects, it is absolutely possible to use different subjects to achieve this goal, from music to drama to art to sport to IT! If you wanted to focus on teaching one of these subjects, we have such projects available.

You’ll stay at a welcoming modern hostel in leafy Laranjeiras, a wonderful area of Rio, just a 15 minute walk away from where you can take the train to Cristo Redentor – one of Brazil’s biggest attractions!
With friendly staff and a relaxed atmosphere, you are sure to feel at home as soon as you step inside. The hostel comprises lots of facilities including 3 TV’s, computers, free Wi-Fi, and 2 communal areas with a bar, dartboard, snooker table and play station and 3!

Breakfast is included in this project and is a fabulous spread of coffee, milk, fruit juice, bread, butter, jams, meat, eggs, yogurts, cereal, fruit and cakes which should set you up for the day.

"T"Everyone made me feel at home and it was a brilliant experience. I really couldn't of asked for a better bunch of kids! The children at the Centre are so much fun and very talented, I became very close to them all and I miss them very much! A lot of the families there don't have much when it comes to material things but their culture and lively personalities make up for that! The Centre is a great organisation, the children enjoy every day there! I suppose it is like an escape for them! I would definitely recommend a trip out to Rio and volunteering somewhere like this, it really was the best time of my life! " Stephanie White(Travellers volunteer).
