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.

If you’d like to apply for this project, please go to our website and complete the application form. As soon as we receive it, we’ll liaise with you and then start making your travel adventure happen.
It’s as easy as that.

Travellers Worldwide BRAZIL: Teach Needy Children in Rio De Janeiro Reviews

My Experience Volunteering with Children in Brazil with Travellers Worldwide

In 2014 I worked through Travellers Worldwide in a favela in Rio de Janeiro.
I can’t praise this experience enough. Everyone should volunteer in a country where you don’t have a common language at least once to start with. It makes the experience incredible. I worked for five months and really got in to the day routine, the staff and children and I'm still in touch with them today. The kindergarten was truly amazing, I felt welcomed and included and most important of all, I felt like it made a difference having me there. Even after my work hours and during the weekends the staff would invite to join them several time for different events.

My volunteer coordinator, Karen was fantastic. I felt more like we became friends rather than a professional relationship. Even after I was done working in the kindergarten, and technically had no rights to her service, she still helped if there was something I needed. I met other volunteers, staying for 3-4 weeks. To me, that little time seemed like a waste of time. That’s not enough time at all. 3 months should be a minimum!
