Vision: 
TeachOverseas.org's vision to is to share Christ's love through teaching. We give North American Christians an opportunity to build significant friendships in classrooms around the world through teaching conversational English. Our team members are credible Christian witnesses who spend quality time with students and colleagues. No teaching experience or knowledge of a foreign language is needed. Comprehensive pre-field training covers teacher training, cross-cultural adjustment, community building, and more. Teachers serve for a summer, a year, or longer.

We require all of our participants to be committed Christians, native English speakers (or have native-like fluency), and for yearlong programs participants must also have a Bachelor's degree in any subject.
