Teach English in Honduras (housing, benefits + stipend provided)

Students Helping Honduras

About the organization

There are plenty of places to teach outside the U.S, but very few organizations give you the chance to make the impact of a lifetime. This immersing job opportunity provides a monthly stipend, housing with utilities, transportation, health insurance, and visa renewal trips.

This challenging position provides the opportunity to spend a year teaching english to the most at-risk youth in Honduras, with an organization that has been featured on CNN, CNN en Espanol, Larry King Live, and USA Today.

In 2012, Students Helping Honduras opened the Villa Soleada Bilingual School in northern Honduras to provide an excellent education for low income students—including children from a local shanty slum and former street children—in El Progreso, Honduras. With over 270 students from pre-K to 8th grade as of 2018, we have continued to add a new grade every year. In 2018, we broke ground on the high school which is set open in 2021.
