Teaching Projects in Rio de Janeiro!
from £775 GBP
to £2195 GBP
Teach Conversational English in this hot tropical paradise to children and adults who need your help! A stimulating yet laid-back experience in one of the most beautiful and diverse countries in the world.
You may want to work at one institute or you may be keen to spread your help between a selection of institutes. Our projects are very well structured but, as with all things Brazilian, also pretty laid back! You don't need any qualifications to participate in a teaching placement in Brazil.
We have a selection of institutions that you can teach at, catering for children ranging in age from very young to teenagers. You can also teach adults looking to improve their English, and in turn, their career prospects. 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.
Travellers offers teacher training courses (1 day intensive, or weekend recognized TEFL qualifications in London and Brighton- more details on the website).
This placement is an all-round experience of volunteering. However if you have any specifications (for example - you might only want to teach sport), just let us know and we can tailor-make the program you are looking for. Otherwise, you may wish to go with the flow and volunteer in a variety of worthwhile institutes for a diverse experience. You may also work with adults who want to improve their English so that they can improve their career prospects - here you'll be able to have more in depth conversations. As well as English, you can teach the following subjects in Brazil:
- Dance (modern, contemporary, ballet, etc.)
- Sports (Football, Basketball, Netball, Volleyball on the beach!)
- An exciting, never-to-be-forgotten adventure into Australian culture.
- You'll learn a lot from experts in your field about how they work in a cultural environment that's different to what you're used to.
- 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!
Rooms are available as dorms, singles and doubles. If you have a preference, please be sure to let us know at the time of booking and we can make the necessary arrangements for you. All rooms have their own bathroom and individual cupboard with a key for security.What to do next

“The schools main objective is to keep children in off the streets, so it provides activities throughout the day and in the evenings in the hope that children will want to stay all day, every day….. and they do! On top of this, children receive a nutritious meal at lunchtime, which is usually their only meal of the entire day. The enthusiasm from the principal and staff has the most incredible effect on the children - despite their circumstances and the daily hardships that they face, they simply love school!! You will be welcomed with open arms to teach whatever you can, including drama, sports, music, art, IT. However, all of the teachers are very excited about being able to offer students the possibility to learn English.
The principal is incredibly genuine and passionate about the school and is viewed as a mother figure by many of the children. When I left, she couldn’t thank me enough for being part of setting up this programme, which give children at the school the opportunity to be exposed to native English speakers. This project is going to be a huge success - the school is incredible and heartbreaking at the same time, anyone volunteering here will fall in love with its magical atmosphere!”
